SANDY, Utah – A pair of Real Salt Lake’s young stars have been called into international duty.

Defender Justen Glad and forward Corey Baird will both attend U.S. National Team camp beginning on January 6 in Chula Vista, Calif.

“Justen and Corey highlight a special group of young players on our roster.  This honor for them is a testament to the work they’ve done at Real Salt Lake since their days at the Academy and reinforces our club vision,” Real Salt Lake General Manager Craig Waibel said in a press release.  “The opportunities are there for the entire group and this call-up could be a sign of things to come for them if they take advantage.”
