And then there were 23.

On Tuesday, the Canadian Soccer announced that D.C. United defender Dejan Jakovic has been added to the preliminary men’s team roster ahead of June 3’s centenary friendly against the United States and two World Cup qualifiers later in the month.

No players were dropped from the initial list of 22 announced last week by national team coach Stephen Hart.

Jakovic came on as a sub in D.C. United’s 3-1 win over Toronto FC on Saturday. The Etobicoke, Ont. native has made four MLS starts this season, and five appearances over all in D.C. United colours so far this year. He has played a grand total of 349 minutes.

Ironically, D.C. United now equals Toronto FC as the MLS teams placing the most Canadians on the men’s national team roster, with two each.

Canada travels to Havana June 8 to face Cuba and then hosts Honduras June 12 at BMO Field.
