FC Dallas announced the international call ups for four of their players over the last couple of days. Paul Arriola and Jesus Ferreira will join the U.S as they prepare for the World Cup and earn their spots on the roster. Nanu will join Guinea-Bissau as they try to qualify for the African Cup of Nations. Lastly Szabolcs Schon will join Hungary as they start their journey in the UEFA Nations League.


USMNT-


It was disappointing to not see Paxton Pomykal's name on the roster sheet. At this point Ferreira and Arriola are regulars for the USMNT camp, so seeing them called up wasn't a surprise. They've built up their chemistry over the last few months, so it'll be fun to see it translate it on the international scale.


The USMNT will play four games during the international window. The first two games are friendlies, the first is June 1st against Morocco at TQL Stadium in Cinncinnati and the second will be on June 5th against Uruguary at Children's Mercy Park in Kansas. The US will end their camp with two matches in the CONCACAF Nations League. They'll start their Nations League journey in Austin's Q2 Stadium on June 10th and then travel to El Salvador to play them at Estadio Cuscatlan on June 14th.

Guinea-Bissau-


Nanu's Guinea-Bissau are only scheduled to play two matches during this international window. Unfortunately they didn't qualify for the upcoming World Cup, but they'll have another chance to be in a major tournament as they now begin their journey to qualify for the African Cup of Nations. They'll start qualifying against Mauritius on June 9th at Stade de Marrakech in Morocco and they'll play their second game against Sierra Leone on June 13th at Stade General Lansana Conte in Guinea.
