Reggie Cannon has been called-up to the U.S. Men’s National Team for the first time, following Monday’s roster release.

Cannon, 20, is one of three players on the roster receiving their first call-ups, along with New York City FC’s Ben Sweat and Jonathan Amon, who plays with Nordsjaelland in the Danish Superliga.

The defender will be called into action for a pair of friendlies against Columbia on October 11 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Fla. (6:30pm CT | FS1, Unimás, UDN) and Peru on October 16 at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn. (6:30pm CT | ESPN2, Unimás, UDN).

The call-up means Cannon, who’s played in all of FC Dallas’ 30 MLS matches, will miss the October 13 road game against D.C. United.

Cannon features in a youth-minded roster with nine players that are age-eligible for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Toyko, bringing the team’s average age to 23 years and 168 days.

Currently, Columbia and Peru are ranked 14th and 21st in the world, respectively.
