Jairo Arrieta was rewarded for his excellent play since joining the Crew in June with a call up to the Costa Rican National Team today. The Ticos head to Santa Cruz, Bolivia for a friendly against the Bolivian National Team next Wednesday

Arrieta told TheCrew.com "I am very happy for the call-up for the game against Bolivia," adding "It is an honor to be called to represent my national team and I hope to receive many more."

The Costa Rican international has three caps, making his debut late last year with fellow Crew forward Olman Vargas. He's also played extensively with the Costa Rican youth teams, including 3 caps with the U-23s in 2004.

The Crew announced Arrieta's signing in April and he joined the team when the summer transfer window in June. He played 18 games, all starts, scoring nine goals and adding four assists. His goal total tied midfielder Eddie Gaven for the team lead.

Costa Rica qualified for the Fourth Round of CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying and will face off against the U.S. twice in the next year as both teams vie for a spot in the 2014 World Cup Finals
