ASHE THE LATEST U.S. ADDITION
CHRISTOPHER MCCOLLUM - Thursday, May 23, 2013
Houston Dynamo defender Corey Ashe has been added by Jurgen Klinsmann to the National Team camp for the upcoming game against Belgium.
The former UNC Tar Heel and MLS All-Star has been a fixture for the Dynamo this season, averaging 90 minutes a game as an attacking left back.
Ashe, 27, has never featured for the National Team, though he has experience at the U-17 and U-23 levels through the years, including the Toulon Tournament in 2008.
With a number of National Team regulars, including Edgar Castillo and Fabian Johnson, having delayed arrivals to camp because of end-of-season club commitments, Ashe will look to bulk up the left side of the field for Klinsmann for the game in Cleveland.
Ashe's diminutive size is often offset by his speed and aggression, and could provide an interesting matchup with Eden Hazard on May 29, if the Virginia native is selected to play.
