FC Dallas Homegrown forward Bryan Reynolds is headed to the U-17 FIFA World Cup in India 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 its first U-17 World Cup title in what will be their 12th appearance in the highest international competition for the age group.
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.
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.
