The FC Dallas U14s have been making a tournament trip to Guadalajara for years now and the club has come to value it so much that they started sending the U13s a few years ago as well. This year is no exception as both clubs are down there once again to take part in Copa Cronos 2023.
Not every player in these age brackets will always go to Mexico on trips, so I reached out to FC Dallas to get the travel rosters and this year it’s pretty close to the full roster. We do occasionally see a guest player on these trips. So if you spot a scoreline “guest player” that will be why.
So here are the two teams.
FC Dallas U14s – 2010s
The U14s are in a group with Toluca and Sporting KC but could face other clubs. They opened with a 2-1 win over Necaxa then fell to Atlas in game two by the same score. Next up in Chivas.
|New for 23-24 from Dallas Texans.
|New 23-24 from Solar.
|Braulio Hernandez Borjas
|New 23-24 from Solar, formally with OKC Energy.
|Scored a brace to win U13 Dallas Cup Final.
|Phil Akem’s younger brother.
|Tamba Hallie II
FC Dallas U13s – 2011s
The 13s are in the same group as Toluca and Sporting KC. They opened against Necaxa but lost 4-2. The 2nd match against Atlas faired better with a 0-0 draw. They also finish with Chivas.
|Little brother of FCD U15 Erick Vargas.
|Peter Luccin’s younger son.
|Romeo Vazquez Jr
|Moves up for 23-24 from ECNL Red.
|New from Solar for 23-24.
|New for 23-24, from DKSC.
|Brother of Oregon commit Aaron Flowers.
|Elvin Pinesa Serrano
|A new name that wasn’t on my preseason roster.
From the start of the season roster, the missing name is Nathan Vasquez. So I can’t help but wonder if the 2nd new name on this roster, Romeo Vazquez Jr, is the same player as the last name is very close.
