Meram accounted for one of two total team assists Saturday as Columbus played Montreal to a 4-4 draw at home.

A pass from Meram to Corey Ashe along the left side of the pitch was then lofted in the direction of Kei Kamara, who proceeded to head the ball past Montreal goalkeeper Evan Bush to open up the scoring in Saturday's fixture. The assist, the midfielder's first in three starts and third of the season, leaves the forward currently pacing all Columbus players in that respective category and pairs with the third-most goals by a member of the Crew (2) to this point in the year.

Iraq has informed the Columbus Crew that Meram is a candidate to play for Iraq in the Olympics this summer, ESPN.com reports.

The 27-year-old Meram, who is under consideration for one of Iraq's three squad spots for players over 23, could miss up to a month of the MLS season if chosen to play. The midfielder, born in Michigan to Iraqi-American parents, has garnered 17 caps since beginning to play for Iraq in 2014 and scored twice in Asian qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup, helping the squad to advance to the third round.

Meram fired off four shots and scored the ninth minute of his Man of the Match performance during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Dallas.

The 27-year-old made his second consecutive start after coming off the bench for the first two matches of the season, and he was on hand to tuck home a pass from Federico Higuain that ultimately earned his side a point. Meram appears set to continue featuring for Columbus after Saturday's performance, and his production over the last couple of seasons indicates that he could be a serviceable midfield fantasy option moving forward.

Meram will miss Sunday's game against FC Dallas as he competes internationally with Iraq, although he's expected to be available Sept. 12 against the Union.

Meram tends to start with the Crew and his absence, along with many others, will allow numerous reserve players to see extended run Sunday.

Meram picked up one assist and had two shots in Saturdayís 3-3 draw against Toronto.

Meram has been the forgotten man as of late in the crowded Columbus midfield. He picked up his fourth assist on the season, but was an early second half substitute as the Crew tried to hold onto their big lead. Meramís playing time may be in question with the arrival of Cedrick to the Columbus. We will have to wait until next Saturday against Orlando City SC to see if Meram continues to hold onto his spot in the starting eleven.
