Dynamo Midfielder Francisco Navas Cobo Called Up To United States U-20 National Team

Houston Dynamo midfielder and Dynamo Academy product Francisco Navas Cobo has been named to the United States Under-20 national team's roster for an upcoming four-team tournament in Peru.

Navas Cobo last played for the U.S. U-20 squad in July when he was a part of the team that won the prestigious Milk Cup in Northern Ireland. The midfielder is one of 20 players, all from professional clubs, named to the roster for the tournament.
