Tarik Scott & Nolan Norris called into US U19s

FC Dallas’ two newest Homegrowns, striker Tarick Scott and defender Nolan Norris, have been called into the US U19s for a January camp. Head coach Marko Mitrović has called in 23 players to the University of Miami from January 5th to the 13th.

Also of note is the selection of former FC Dallas Academy striker Nighte Pickering who signed with Memphis 901 last August.

All 23 players are age-eligible for this summer’s 2023 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Indonesia.

Seven players return from the U-19s’ strong showing at September’s Slovenia Nations Cup, where the USA defeated Malta, Croatia, and Scotland. Four players (including Norris) have been a part of all five U-19 MYNT camps so far this cycle.

Scott is making his US U19 debut.
