The Chilean national team have called in three MLS-based players as they prepare to gather in North America to play two friendlies during the upcoming international window.

Recent Houston Dynamo acquisition Jose Bizama, a defender, will take part in next week’s activities, as will Sporting Kansas City’s Felipe Gutierrez and Colorado Rapids striker Diego Rubio.

Rubio has scored nine goals and three assists in 21 league matches for the Rapids in 2019. Gutierrez (pictured at top) has tabbed 10g/2 assists in 26 MLS appearances for SKC, while Bizama is just two games into his Dynamo career.

La Roja will meet Argentina in Los Angeles on Sept. 5, then visit Honduras in San Pedro Sula on Sept. 10.
