New England Revolution confirmed on Monday that midfielder Dylan Borrero and defender Christian Makoun have been called into their respective national teams. 

In a statement just after 3PM, the Revs said  “Borrero and Colombia will face South Korea in a friendly match on Friday, March 24 (7:00 a.m. ET – Ulsan, South Korea) before taking on Japan in the 2023 Kirin Challenge Cup on Tuesday, March 28 (6:20 a.m. ET – Osaka Japan). Makoun will join Venezuela ahead of two friendly matches, beginning Friday, March 24 against Saudi Arabia (3:00 p.m. ET – Jeddah, Saudi Arabia) followed by a match against Uzbekistan on Tuesday, March 28 (2:00 p.m. ET – Buraidah, Saudi Arabia).”

“This marks Borrero’s second senior team call-up for Colombia after making his international debut for Los Cafeteros in a January friendly against the United States,” said the Revs. “Borrero, 21, started and played 68 minutes in a central midfield role in his debut, recording a pair of shots with one on target. The midfielder, who previously made seven combined international appearances for Colombia at the U-17, U-18, and U-20 levels, is currently in his second MLS season after signing with New England in April 2022.”

The Revs said “Makoun, 23, has earned six senior caps for La Vinotinto, most recently starting at left back in a pair of November friendlies against Panama and Syria, with both matches played in the United Arab Emirates.” 

New England returns to action on Saturday, March 25 at D.C. United (7:30 p.m. ET). Brad Feldman and Charlie Davies will have the radio call on 98.5 The Sports Hub (WBZ-FM), while 1260 AM Nossa Radio will call the action in Portuguese.
