Four Players Called Up
Three players called-up to Mexican National Team and one player Bosnia-Herzegovina National Team
In late September, the Mexican Football Federation identified a group of 18 Mexican-American players born in 2004. The camp, included three members of the LA Breakers 2004 Boys ECNL side: Michael Hernandez, Jason Moreno, and Sebastian Ricardo Rincon.
“The LA Breakers are so proud of Jason, Michael, and Sebastian for their achievements and being called into the Mexican youth national team training camp here in USA and Los Angeles. It is a smart move by the Mexican federation to search in the states for players that come from Mexican heritage and it is a wonderful opportunity for these young aspiring soccer players.”Tim Pierce – LA Breakers DOC
Another player, Vedad Kovac, from Atlanta, was called up to the Bosnia-Herzegovina National Team in September for friendlies against Albania. Kovac is a member of the NTH-NASA Under-18/19 Boys ECNL side.
Kovac was selected to join the team to prepare for the Under-19 European Qualifiers in November.
“The last couple of months have meant a lot to me. I have experienced something I would not trade for anything. This has made my family very happy, which has made me even more excited to participate.”Vedad Kovac
In only its third season, the Boys ECNL includes 90 clubs across the country.
The opportunity to shine on a national stage, to compete in high-level conference games, and to develop daily in great training environments will help more and more talented players in the Boys ECNL rise to prominence in the coming years.
