As reported in previous posts here, five United players are being called up by their national treams for international play from Sunday through March 26.

Here are details:

Defender Francisco Calvo plays for Costa Rica March 22 vs. Guatemala and March 26 Jamaica.

Midfielder Jan Gregus plays for Slovakia in UEFA Euro qualifiers vs. Hungary March 21 and Wales March 24.

Midfielder Rasmus Schuller plays for Finland in Euro qualifiers against Italy March 23 and Armenia March 26.

Midfielder/forward Romario Ibarra plays for Ecuador vs. the U.S. national team in Orlando March 21 and vs. Honduras March 26.

Defender Romain Metanire plays in an African Cup of Nations qualifier vs. Senegal March 22.

Californian Miguel Ibarra had hopes he'd be called up for the U.S. National team camp, but wasn't among the 24 players summoned as the team heads toward Gold Cup play this summer that will bring it to Allianz Field in June.

United management requested a bye week for next week because of that international slot in the schedule and after Saturday's game at the L.A. Galaxy won't play again until March 30 at New England.
