Crew Rookie Kevan George returned to Columbus on Wednesday after serving international duty for the Trinidad & Tobago U-23 squad for CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying in Los Angeles.
Though the U-23 Soca Warriors failed to move on to the next round of qualifying in Kansas City, George's time with the T&T U-23s provided valuable experience.
"It was a phenomenal experience overall," George said of his time with the Soca Warriors. "I learned to play with different players and adapt to different roles that the coaches wanted me to perform."
After going 90 minutes in all three of T&T's qualifying matches, the rookie midfielder is happy to be back with the Black & Gold.
"I missed being around the guys and training with the team I was drafted with. I'm just happy to be (in Columbus) again," George said Thursday.
With both a first team and a reserve match this weekend in Toronto, George could see minutes with the Crew in some capacity.
