The 24-year-old has received a late call-up after manager Giovanni Trapattoni agreed to FC Toronto's request for Darren O'Dea to be allowed to remain with them for their pre-season preparations.

Pearce has one senior cap to date, scoring on his debut in a 4-1 victory over Oman at Craven Cottage in September last year.
