Bolton Wanderers Jump The Gun On Announcing Tim Ream's United States Call Up

Last week, Bolton Wanderers announced that seven players were going on international duty with Marvin Sordell, Adam Bogdan, Chung-Yong Lee, Gregg Wylde, Sam Ricketts, Keith Andrews, Tim Ream all set to travel. In actuality, Tim Ream will not be involved in this round of international fixtures and the team had made a mistake on announcing his presence in the United States Men's National Team setup for the World Cup Qualifiers against Jamaica.

The announcement was a bit of a head-scratcher to us when it first happened for two reasons: first, Tim Ream has been part of an awful Bolton defense and he, like the majority of the other players at the back, was directly responsible for the goals. Second, the US Roster was not due to be announced for a few more days.

It turns out that Bolton Wanderers prematurely announced Reams' inclusion in the side. Tim Ream had been in the preliminary list for Jurgen Klinsmann's squad but was cut relatively long before the final announcement was made. Ream made his international debut in 2010 but has been out of the side for all of 2012, having not been included once since his move to Bolton Wanderers. Ream currently has eight caps for the US Men's National Team.
