FRISCO – FC Dallas has extended the contract of Homegrown goalkeeper Richard Sanchez through the end of the 2015 season.
After signing with FC Dallas on Feb. 18, 2011, Sanchez went on to become the first American-born FIFA U-17 World Cup Champion. The sixth Homegrown player in FC Dallas history, Sanchez backstopped the Mexican Under-17 National Team to a 2-0 victory over Uruguay in front of a packed house at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City on July 10, 2011.
The 18-year-old served as FC Dallas’ backup goalkeeper for six MLS matches in 2012. He also logged 360 minutes with the FC Dallas Reserves this season, conceding six goals and finishing with a 3-1-1 record. Sanchez was called in to represent the Mexican Under-20 National Team three times in 2012.
