Fresh off a promising Gold Cup campaign, the two attackers will head to Portugal.

Despite missing two months of action with a knee sprain, Kelyn Rowe never fell off the U.S. Soccer radar.

On Tuesday, the Revolution midfielder earned his second-ever call-up to the U.S. Men’s National Team ahead of a November 14 friendly against Portugal. Forward Juan Agudelo also made the roster.

This summer, the pair helped the U.S. to the Gold Cup crown. Rowe shined during the group stage, scoring his first international goal and collecting first international assist in a one-week span. Agudelo made three appearances in the tournament; the Colombian-born forward has now earned four call-ups in 2017 and appears locked into the National Team picture moving forward.

Both players will look to build their international resumes when the United States visits the Selecção das Quinas, the third-ranked team in the world. The match kicks off at 3:45 p.m. ET on FS1.
