FRISCO, Texas -- FC Dallas has sent third-year goalkeeper Josh Lambo on loan to the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the USSF Division-2 Pro League for the 2010 season, the team announced today. Per the agreement, Lambo may be recalled by FC Dallas at any time during the year.
Lambo, 19, was selected by Dallas in the first round of the 2008 MLS SuperDraft. He served as the backup goalkeeper for 15 of the team's 32 games last year, though he did not see action. He started in goal in the international friendly match versus Costa Rica's Club Sport Herediano on June 10, 2009 and posted a 2-0 shutout.
The 19 year-old has been a consistent call up for the U.S. Under-20 team and most recently competed in last year's FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt.
FC Dallas kicks off the 2010 season at Pizza Hut Park on March 27 when they host in-state rivals the Houston Dynamo.
