ACADEMY: Terwege, Vega Called in to U.S. U-19 Camp

FRISCO - FC Dallas U-18 Academy players Brandon Terwege and Devin Vega have been called in by U.S. U-19 Men's National Team head coach Brad Friedel for training camp set to take place from Oct. 3-10 in Chula Vista, Calif.

Vega has 5 goals in the first 4 games of FCDs season, while Terwege has appeared in one match after returning from a preseason injury. Both were members of the U-18 USSDA National Championship side last season. 

The U.S. U-19s will face Liga MX side Xolos’ reserve squad at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. PT on Oct. 7, and will then play another match at 4 p.m. PT on Oct. 9, with the opponent still to be determined. This camp is the U-19 MNT’s return to action after its appearance in the Stevan Vilotic Tournament in Subotica, Serbia last month.

Out of the 24-player roster, 10 compete in MLS, seven play for Development Academy clubs, three play at the collegiate level, two compete in the NASL and two play in the USL. Additionally, 22 out of the 24 players called up have Academy ties.

The U-19 MNT enters its first training camp of the year with a 6-8-0 overall record in 2016, a record that includes winning the Slovakia Cup back in April.
