U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team head coach Jason Kreis has added FC Dallas Homegrown midfielder Tanner Tessmann to the 20-player roster for the Concacaf Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship in Guadalajara, Mexico that starts today, March 18, and runs through March 30.

Tessmann will replace midfielder Ulysses Llanez on the roster, as he joins FCD teammate Jesus Ferreira on the roster that looks to earn the US’s first Olympic trip since 2008. Tessmann has been training as an alternate with the U-23 USMNT ahead of the tournament.

The USA kicks off Olympic qualifying today, March 18 vs. Costa Rica at 4:30 p.m. CT, faces the Dominican Republic on Sunday, March 21 at 6 pm CT, and wraps up the group stage vs. Mexico on Thursday, March 26 at 8:30 pm CT. All three U.S. group stage games will be broadcast on FS1 and TUDN.
