Ferreira joins a group of former FC Dallas academy players that include Reggie Cannon, Ricardo Pepi, Weston McKennie, Kellyn Acosta, and Chris Richards.
This is Ferreria’s sixth call-up to the national team since 2020. He made his senior team debut in the 1-0 win against Costa Rica on Feb. 1, 2020. Ferreira also scored his first international brace and added three assists in the 7-0 shutout win against Trinidad and Tobago on Jan. 31, 2021. He has a total of two goals and three assists in five appearances.
The USMNT will face El Salvador at Lower.com Field in Columbus Ohio on Jan. 27, Canada at the Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton Ontario on Jan. 30, and Honduras at Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minnesota on Feb. 2. With six matches remaining, the USMNT sits in second place in the Octagonal standings with 15 points and a 4-1-3 record. The top three teams in the group earn automatic qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
