Mechack Jerome and Peterson Joseph were the sixth and seventh Sporting player to be summoned for international duty when it was announced they would be on the Haitian national team for two friendlies next month.

Haiti will play Spain on June 8th in Miami and will then head to Rio de Janerio, Brazil to take on Italy on June 12th. Jerome and Joseph will join the Haitian squad after Sporting Kansas City's June 1st match against the Montreal Impact. Fortunately for Sporting, their June break to accomodate for the FIFA International dates means that Joseph and Jerome will not miss any league matches.

There is a possibility that they could miss a US Open Cup with the fourth round taking place on June 12th. Sporting will have to win their third round match next week against either Minnesota United FC or the Des Moines Menace to reach that point.

Jerome first debuted for the Haitian National Team in 2008 and was a part in their third place finish at the 2012 Caribbean Cup. He has made 22 total appearances for his country. Joseph has made a couple of appearances in FIFA World Cup qualifying and Caribbean Cup qualifying, making his total number of appearances 13.

Both players are also likely to be called up for the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July, which Haiti will be a participant in.
