Defender to join U.S. for El Salvador
U.S. international defender Clarence Goodson will join the National Team in Carson, Calif. as it prepares for its Feb. 24 friendly vs. El Salvador in Tampa.
Goodson, who scored the Americans' lone goal in their 3-1 loss to Honduras last month, is expected to arrive Tuesday night.
He was given permission from his Norwegian club to accept the callup, according to the US Soccer blog.
Goodson played for IK Start in a 4-2 win over KSP Polonia in a pre-season friendly in La Manga, Spain.
