In a confirmation of what 3rd Degree had reported on Twitter earlier this week, three FC Dallas players have departed for Anthony Hudson’s first camp as US U-20 MNT coach.
Twenty-four players are taking part in the 12-day camp at the IMG Academy. FC Dallas leads all clubs with the three call-ups.
Thomas Roberts and Kevin Bonilla were both called up to November’s cycle-starting camp in Croatia alongside Johan Gomez (now of FC Porto) and Tanner Tessmann (Clemson University). That camp marked Tab Ramos’ last before being named Houston Dynamo head coach. Sealy was with the U-16 BNT at the time as he excelled in the Nike Friendlies in Florida.
All three players were part of North Texas SC’s championship-winning season making double digit appearances. Roberts also spent time this offseason training with Bayern Munich as part of the clubs’ player development partnership.
