New York Cosmos goalkeeper called up for World Cup qualifiers

Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

New York Cosmos goalkeeper Keasel Broome has been called by Barbados to take part in their next round of World Cup qualifiers, in June. Barbados has matches against Aruba on June 10 and June 14, and Broome will be reporting to their camp on May 31.

For Broome, it's going to be his first international callup, and will tie him to Barbados if he's capped in either of those matches. He seems excited about the opportunity though, and had the following to say to the Cosmos' website:

"This really is a big honor. I was actually called up for the first time back in March, but I was unable to come into camp because I hurt my shoulder."

"I’ve been following Barbados’ national team for a long time. Whenever they have a game I always look to see if I can stream it somewhere online. And it’s not a bad place to vacation."

Assuming he makes an appearance, Broome would become the fifth member of the squad to be capped by his national team, joining Marcos Senna (Spain), Raul (Spain), Andres Flores (El Salvador), and Danny Szetela (United States). Here's hoping he gets the opportunity to play in one or both of those fixtures, and congratulations on the call.
