Pomykal, 18, was also recently named to the annual Homegrown Game, slated for July 31, at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Training Ground (7 PM CT | UDN, Twitter.com). The 15th Homegrown Player in club history, Pomykal played eight minutes in FCD’s 3-1 win vs. the Chicago Fire at Toyota Stadium this past Saturday. He has amassed 255 minutes in six appearances for the first team since signing in September of 2016.

Along with Pomykal, Servania was a member of the FC Dallas U16 Academy side that brought home the 2016 U.S. Soccer Development Academy National Championship and the U18 team that captured the club’s first Gordon Jago Dallas Cup Super Group title in 2017.
