US national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann was forced to make a second change to the roster for the upcoming friendly against Mexico as Robbie Rogers was called in to replace an injured Maurice Edu.
Maurice Edu suffered a calf injury on Sunday in Rangers' friendly against Chelsea.
Rogers, 24, has earned 14 caps for the USMNT and has scored one goal. This season for the Columbus Crew, Rogers has two goals and three assists.
The change is the second one for Klinsmann ahead of his debut as USMNT head coach. On Friday, Zach Loyd replaced Nurnberg's Timothy Chandler who was injured last week in practice but still played over the weekend.
