FC Dallas midfielders Edwin Cerrillo, Paxton Pomykal and Brandon Servania have been called up by head coach Tab Ramos to represent United States U-20 National Team in the 2019 U-20 World Cup running from May 23 to June 15, 2019 in Poland.
Former FC Dallas Homegrown Chris Richards was also called up by Ramos.
Cerrillo and Servania will depart on Monday following FC Dallas’ game against the New York Red Bulls on Saturday, May 11. Pomykal will join his FC Dallas teammates and the rest of the U-20 squad on Monday, May 20 and will be available for both FC Dallas matches against Los Angeles FC.
This will be Cerrillo’s first call-up for the U-20 National Team. The 18-year old has started seven straight matches for Luchi Gonzalez’s FC Dallas squad this season after signing a HGP deal in the preseason.
Pomykal and Servania attended the U-20 National Team camp in January and were part of the U-20 squad that won its second straight Concacaf U-20 title after defeating Mexico 2-0 in the final back in November. Pomykal scored three goals in eight games and Servania scored two goals in six games throughout the three-week tournament.
The U-20 National Team was drawn into Group D for the 22nd edition of the tournament and will play matches against Ukraine, Nigeria and Qatar in the group stage.
