Revolution midfielder Zach Herivaux has found himself called into Haiti’s national team for a pre-World Cup friendly match against 2014 world runners-up Argentina.
Herivaux and Les Grenadiers will travel to Buenos Aires for the tune-up on May 29. It is one of two friendlies for the Argentines prior to their trip to Russia, as the Albicelestes will take on Israel on June 9, a week before Argentina opens Group D against Iceland.
“Always an honor,” Herivaux tweeted Thursday morning, “to be able to represent the country.”
Herivaux’s father is Haitian.
Herivaux, who played his first extended minutes in a Major League Soccer match in nearly two years this past Saturday, has registered one cap — appearance — for Haiti, and was recently called into the squad for a friendly against the United Arab Emirates in November ’17.
The Brookline native had made his national team debut the previous month as part of a 3-3 draw with Japan.
Hungary, which has a friendly against Belarus on June 6 and will host World Cup-bound Australia on June 9, have not yet named its call-ups.
