Lahoud called up by Sierra Leone

Chester, Pa. – Philadelphia Union midfielder Michael Lahoud has been called up to the Sierra Leone National Team for a 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifying match Sept. 7 against the national team of Equatorial Guinea.

Lahoud and his squad will take on Equatorial Guinea at Brookfields National Stadium in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

The 26-year-old midfielder will depart for international duty Sept. 1 – a day after the Union’s home match versus Montreal Impact – and return after the Sept. 7 match. He will miss the Union’s road game against the San Jose Earthquakes Sept. 8.

This marks Lahoud’s first-ever national team call up to his native Sierra Leone. Lahoud has played in eight matches this year for the Union, starting in two.
