Joseph turns down Grenada to stay with Revs

Two questions lingered through Memorial Day weekend in the aftermath of the Revolution’s 1-0 loss to the LA Galaxy.

First, would Shalrie Joseph accept Grenada’s call to join his homeland for the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup or would he remain with the Revs as they battle for position in the crowded Eastern Conference? Second, what was the extent of Benny Feilhaber’s right ankle injury?

The answer to the first question will be well-received in New England, as the Revolution’s captain chose to remain with his club and declined Grenada’s invitation to join its Gold Cup roster. Joseph was at Gillette Stadium for training on Tuesday morning and will be available for selection when the Revs travel to visit FC Dallas on Saturday night. We plan on speaking with Joseph about his decision on Wednesday, so check out revolutionsoccer.net for another update tomorrow afternoon.

As for Feilhaber, the update at this point is that there isn’t too much to update. On Tuesday, Feilhaber was listed on the Revolution’s injury report as OUT with a sprained right ankle, but right now there is no timetable for his return nor has a decision been made about his ability to join the U.S. National Team for the Gold Cup. He’ll continue to be evaluated by the medical staff and we’ll keep you updated as further updates become available.

    Are you guys talking to Joesph for an article, video or will he be making an appearance on the Far Post Podcast? I hope it’s the third one!
