Mauricio Wright

Club: New England Revolution
Position: Defender

Wright did not feature during qualifying but has forced his way back into the squad this year.

He is regarded as one of the most important players in his club side - New England Revolution in the USA's Major League Soccer.

Tall and strong in the air, he can be dangerous from set pieces in the opposition's penalty area and is a tight marker in his own box.

Dangerous coming forward, the 31-year-old has previously played for San Jose Earthquakes and Comunicaciones, in Guatemala.
