Columbus Crew winger Robbie Rogers is in, Rangers FC midfielder Maurice Edu is out for the U.S. friendly against Mexico in Philadelphia.
Rogers (Huntington Beach and Palos Verdes/Mater Dei HS), who was on the preliminary roster for last year's World Cup, was called in Sunday after Edu (Fontana/Etiwanda HS) sustained a calf strain in the Scottish champions' friendly Saturday against Chelsea.
FC Dallas defender Zach Loyd earlier replaced FC Nürnberg defender Timothy Chandler, who pulled out of the game with an injury.
