Two new Academy players on US national team radar
By Buzz Carrick
US Soccer has announced the latest US U14 camp, yes they go that young, and two FC Dallas Academy players on on the roster: forward Christian Ramirez from Farmer’s Branch and midfielder Martin Salas from Dallas. The 14s is a long way from being able to help the senior FCD side but such is the way great clubs are built world wide in this sport. It shows a great deal about the level and depth of FCD's Academy that players this young are already on the US radar.
The U.S. Under-14 Boys’ National Team will convene for a training camp from May 1-8 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. Head coach Manny Schellscheidt has called upon 38 players, including 20 from U.S. Soccer Development Academy clubs, as the team comes together for the first time since a trip to Mexico in January.
