New England Revolution Midfielder Zachery Herivaux Called In To Play For Hati’s National Team
On Thursday afternoon the New England Revolution announced that 22-year-old homegrown midfielder Zachery Herivauz was being called in to play for Hati’s National Team.
Herivaux is being called in to play in Hati’s upcoming friendly match against Argentina’s “A” National team. This is Herivaux’s second call-up to the Haitian National Team with his debut being back on October 10th 2017 for Hati’s senior team in a friendly against Japan.
In that match, the Brookline Massaccheusett’s native played all 90 minutes and even recorded an assist in a 3-3 draw. The HomeGrown Player is expected to miss two Revolution regular season matches with the May 26th at Vancouver Whitecaps FC and the May 30th vs. Atlanta United FC being the two he is expected to miss.
In the 2018 MLS season, Herivaux has made one substitute appearance and has had six additional selections to the 18-man matchday roster. His performance has certainly drawn attention with Head Coach Brad Friedel talking just this week about using Herivaux in an advanced midfield role.
“We put him in the game a little bit higher up the field because we still wanted to get pressure as much as we could to their center backs. And also when Michael Bradley pushed into the midfield, [we wanted to get Zach] onto Michael Bradley. That was the reason that we put Zach in. Zach can play as a six, eight, or as a 10 depending on the system that you’re playing in. It’s very good to have versatile players like that in your team.”
Herivaux was the third HomeGrown Player in the team’s history to sign and began his career with the Revs in the Revolution Academy and was named the inaugural UnitedHealthcare Academy Player of the Year back in 2014.
