North Texas SC center back Paul Amedume has been named to Canada’s U20 provisional list for the CONCACAF U20 Championship scheduled for June 18 to July 3 in Honduras.
Amedume has appeared in seven MLS NEXT Pro matches with six starts after for North Texas SC.
“It is an honor, it’s something that every player dreams of being able to get the chance to play for your country” Amedume said. “I know I haven’t made the final list but it’s a start. I am happy because I’ve never been called up to a camp nor a preliminary camp. If I continue to work hard more opportunities will come for me.”
