squad earlier this month.
The 5-11, 130-pound midfielder has appeared in 14 matches over
his two-year career with the Bobcats, tallying one goal and two

country on the international stage.

1-1 draw with host country Guadeloupe on Wednesday. The squad is
also scheduled to face Antigua and Barbuda on Friday in the second
of two matches before returning to their respective clubs and
institutions next week.
In total, four groups will compete in the first round, with the
winner of each group qualifying for the CONCACAF U-20 Championship
in Guatemala April 3-17. Meanwhile, the group runners - up will
