Homegrown earns FC Dallas' 28th MoneyGram International Call-Up of 2017
FRISCO - FC Dallas Homegrown forward Bryan Reynolds is headed to the U-17 World Cup as a member of the U.S. U-17 National Team.
Reynolds is the youngest of 21 players selected by head coach John Hackworth as the Americans look for their first U-17 World Cup title in what will be their 12th appearance in the highest international competition for the age group. The forward is one of just three 2001 birth year players on a majority 2000 birth year team.
The U.S. U-17s depart for a training stint in Dubai on September 24 before opening their group stage against the hosts, India, on Oct. 6. They will compete in Group A against India, Colombia and Ghana with all games airing on FS2.
Dallas’ youngest professional signing spent all of the 2016-17 school year at the U-17 Residency Program in Bradenton, Fla. and has earned seven U-17 National Team call-ups in the 2017 calendar year alone, including winning the CONCACAF U-17 Championship with a goal and an assist starting in the final three matches.
