Zavagnin added to U.S. team roster

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City Wizards midfielder
Kerry Zavagnin has been added to the U.S. Men's National Team roster for
their match against England on Saturday, May 28th at 2:00 p.m. CT at Soldier
Field in Chicago. Zavagnin will replace midfielder Pablo Mastroeni, who
pulled his right quadricep in the Colorado Rapids' 2-1 loss to FC Dallas on
Wednesday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas.

Zavagnin made three appearances for the U.S. team in the semifinal round of
CONCACAF qualifying for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, helping to secure wins
against El Salvador on two occasions and one victory against Panama. He has
11 caps with the U.S. since making his international debut against Mexico on
October 25, 2000.

The match against England will be the first time the team's face
each other since 1994, when the U.S. fell 2-0 at London's famed Wembley
Stadium. The Memorial Weekend match will be broadcast live on ESPN and fans
can also follow all the action live at ussoccer.com's MatchTracker,
presented by Philips Electronics.
