FC Dallas forward and 2019 top scorer Jesus Ferreira has committed to play for the U.S. Men’s National Team, the U.S. Soccer Federation confirmed today.

Born in Colombia, Ferreira moved to Texas with his family in 2009 when his father, David, signed with FC Dallas on loan. During his time with the FC Dallas academy and then the first team, it was only a matter of time before he got noticed by the national team. The only thing he had to sort out was his citizenship, which he completed last fall.

Now he will get his chance to show the rest of the country what we already know as US coach Gregg Berhalter confirmed that he will start tomorrow’s friendly against Costa Rica.

This makes tomorrow’s game a must watch as Ferreira could also be joined by fellow FC Dallas Homegrown players Brandon Servania and Reggie Cannon in the lineup.
