Yohance Marshall Gets T&T Call Up

The Galaxy will be without defender Yohance Marshall for Thursday night’s game against the Union after the 24-year-old was called into the Trinidad and Tobago National Team for their upcoming friendly against Jamaica on October 10. Marshall was on the bench for the Galaxy on Sunday against Chivas USA, but did not play after starting each of the two previous games, including his MLS debut against D.C. United on September 18.

Marshall, who has played for Trinidad at the U-17, U-20 and U-21 level as well as in a number of qualifiers ahead of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, has never played in a full international for his country and could make his full debut on Sunday when the Soca Warriors travel to Kingston, Jamaica to take on the Reggae Boyz. If he is capped in that game, he will become the second Galaxy player to earn his first cap this year, joining Omar Gonzalez, who made his U.S. debut against Brazil on August 10.

Marshall is the only Galaxy player that has been called in for national team duty during the current international window, with the club’s other internationals being allowed to remain with the club this week.
