FOOTBALL - Coventry City's Haji Wright called up by USA for Brazil and Colombia friendlies

Coventry Editorial 20th May, 2024 Updated: 20th May, 2024   0

COVENTRY City striker Haji Wright has received a call-up to the United States of America squad for two upcoming friendly matches.

Wright became Coventry’s club-record signing last summer and enjoyed a prolific debut season at the CBS Arena, scoring 19 goals in 50 appearances in all competitions.

And Wright now hopes to add to his tally of nine international caps with USA to play Colombia on June 8 and Brazil on June 13.

USA have qualified for next month’s Copa America as tournament hosts with Wright hoping to catch the eye of USA boss Gregg Berhalter who will select a 26-man squad for the competition following the two friendly games.

Wright has scored four goals in nine caps for USA.
