SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Former UC Santa Barbara standout and current member of Major League Soccer's Vancouver Whitecaps, Michael Boxall was called back up to the New Zealand National Team last week.

The defender, who completed his career at UCSB in 2010, started for the All Whites in their Wednesday evening match against El Salvador in Houston, Texas. They battled to a 2-2 draw.
