Kellyn Acosta on The Ticket

FC Dallas’ Kellyn Acosta joined Peter Welpton and Andy Swift on 1310 The Ticket Friday afternoon. The former FC Dallas Academy midfielder joined The Hardline from the bus on his way to the U.S. National Team’s training session at AT&T Stadium ahead of Saturday’s CONACAF Gold Cup Semifinal vs. Costa Rica.

Acosta discussed the magnitude of playing a U.S. National Team game in his hometown, his move to the central midfield under head coach Bruce Arena and what it was like to face Mexico in a World Cup Qualifying match at hostile Azteca Stadium. 

The hosts closed the segment discussing the possibilities of a Borussia Dortmund midfield featuring Acosta and fellow U.S. star Christian Pulisic.
