in Washington, D.C. this weekend as the team prepares to face New Zealand at RFK Stadium on Tuesday, Oct. 11.
The 21-year-old is one of six players added to the roster after the team’s 2-0 win against Cuba on Friday, including Juan Agudelo, Matt Belser, Terrence Boyd, Bill Hamid, Tim Parker and Michael Orozco. Meanwhile 10 players have returned to their clubs: John Brooks, Geoff Cameron, Timmy Chandler, Ethan Horvath, Fabian Johnson, Jordan Morris, Christian Pulisic, Chris Wondolowski, Bobby Wood and DeAndre Yedlin.
