Columbus Crew Forward Gyasi Zardes to Join United States Men's National Team for International Friendly

December 3, 2021 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Columbus Crew SC News Release


COLUMBUS - Columbus Crew today announced that forward Gyasi Zardes has been selected to the United States Men's National Team roster for the upcoming international friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif., on Saturday, December 18 [8:00 p.m. ET / FS1, UniMás, TUDN].

The 30-year-old has earned 65 caps for the United States and tallied 14 international goals and 10 assists. Zardes' most recent cap came earlier this fall in a 2-1 victory over Costa Rica in a 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifier at the Crew's downtown home of Lower.com Field on Oct. 13.

Zardes has appeared in 103 regular-season matches for the Black & Gold since joining the Club ahead of the 2018 season. Over that span, he has registered 53 goals and six assists for the Crew. The Hawthorne, Calif., native joins Jeff Cunningham (64 goals), Brian McBride (62 goals) and Federico Higuain (55 goals) as one of only four players in Crew history to score 50 or more regular-season goals for the Black & Gold.

Lower.com Field, located in Astor Park, will again play host to the U.S. Men's National Team for a crucial 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against El Salvador on January 27, 2022. With demand far exceeding capacity for the last three World Cup Qualifiers, U.S. Soccer will once again utilize a weighted random draw for tickets. Information on the ticket allocation process is available here.

The Black & Gold are set to open the 2022 MLS season by hosting Vancouver Whitecaps FC at Lower.com Field on Saturday, February 26 at 3:30 p.m. ET. Season Ticket Memberships for the first full season at Lower.com Field are now available, with the Crew also accepting Nine-Match Ticket Plan deposits. For as little as $100, fans will have limited game selection flexibility, access to pre-sales and more. Supporters interested in securing Season Ticket Memberships or placing deposits for Nine-Match Plans for the 2022 MLS season can call 614-447-2739, visit columbuscrew.com/tickets/memberships or email seasontickets@columbuscrew.com to get connected with a Season Ticket Member representative.
