FCD’s exciting young U17 goalkeeper standout Julian Eyestone has been chosen for the 2023 MLS Next All-Star Game. Malachi Molina was chosen last year.
The game will feature two teams competing in an East versus West matchup on July 19, at 9:30 am CT at the Naval Academy’s Glenn Warner Soccer Facility in Annapolis, Maryland.
Eyestone has been playing for the U19s and North Texas SC (8 games, 31 saves, 3 shutouts) as well as his age bracket U17 side. He’s also a frequent invitee to first-team training. Eyestone was named best keeper at the ’23 GA Cup after leading his U17 side to the finals.
“I am excited and happy to have been selected,” Goalkeeper Julian Eyestone told FCDallas.com. “My family knew before me and having them there with me when I found out was special. I am looking forward to being in D.C. playing alongside some great players.”
The 17-year-old Eyestone was originally graduating high school in 2024 but he accelerated his program to come out a year early. Eyestone signed for Duke and – barring a change in contract status with FCD – the 6’6″ keeper will be playing soccer in the ACC this fall.
