US Soccer has announced a series of Youth National Team Talent Identification Centers for April of 2021. The one-day camps are intended to expand the YNT player pool. So these are not Youth National Team call-ups, but they could lead to one.
Nine FC Dallas players are on the roster for the Texas 2006 ID Center. If you have followed my writing about the FC Dallas U15s and the Dallas Cup you will recognize these names.
The paperwork I’ve seen mentioned the ID Centers will be conducted adhering to the US Soccer Return to Play protocols regarding Covid-19.
The Texas ID center is taking place on April 27th at the Toyota Soccer Center – home of FC Dallas.
