Duo to miss Saturday’s game vs. Real Salt Lake.

Los Angeles Football Club has two more players on international duty, as midfielder Peter-Lee Vassell and defender Mohamed El-Munir have been called up by Jamaica and Libya, respectively, for the current international window.

Vassell, in his first season in MLS, has been selected by Jamaica for a Concacaf Nations League qualifier against El Salvador on Saturday. He’s made two appearances off the bench for LAFC so far this year, so Bob Bradley will have to make some adjustment in response for his club’s game on Saturday against Real Salt Lake.

El-Munir, meanwhile, will join Libya as they face South Africa in a crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Sunday. If Libya win, they’ll qualify for the AfCon, which will take place in June and July this year. The defender hasn’t played yet for LAFC since his trade from Orlando City in the offseason, so his absence will not require as much shifting around.

The duo join Christian Ramirez and Mark-Anthony Kaye on international duty this FIFA window. Ramirez will likely be replaced by Adama Diomande, while several players could potentially replace Kaye in midfield. We’ll see what changes are made when LAFC host RSL at the weekend.
