New US U19 Youth National Team head coach Marko Mitrović will lead his first training camp from April 22-May 1 at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif. The camp is mostly domestic with just two players who play abroad. Three FC Dallas players were selected: Nolan Norris, Nighte Pickering, and Anthony Ramirez.
All 33 players at this training camp are age-eligible for this summer’s 2022 Concacaf U-20 Championship in Honduras, which serves as qualification for the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup and the 2024 Olympics.
The players born in 2005 are also age-eligible for the 2024-25 U-20 World Cup cycle.
All three FC Dallas players are 2005s.
Nolan Norris is the U17 captain and left back. He also plays for the U19s and North Texas SC
Nighte Picerking is a U17 by age but is primarily rostered with the U19s. He’s a 9 and was a fairly frequent first-team training invite under former Head Coach Luchi Gonzalez. He’s also trained with North Texas SC.
Anthony Ramirez is a US and Mexico eligible player who is frequently called into Mexico camps. This is the first time in several years he’s been in a US camp. Ramirez has played for North Texas SC in scrimmages but has yet to debut.
