Former World Soccer Academy member Dylan Carreiro gets call to Senior Men’s team

First call to Canada’s MNT

October 7, 2013


Winnipeg – Yet another former World Soccer Academy member is realizing a personal dream.  Dylan Carreiro will suit up for Canada’s men’s national team in a friendly versus Australia on October 15 at Craven Cottage (EPL Fulham FC).  Canadian head coach Benito Floro added Dylan, who is member of the Queen’s Park Rangers Elite Development Squad, and Michael Petrasso to and already strong team.  It is a Canadian team that features the likes of Dwayne De Rosario and Tosaint Ricketts among others. 

Dylan was thrilled with the news, “Its always an honour to be called to the national team, especially this one due to it being my first senior call up.” Dylan joins Ali Musse as the latest World Soccer Academy graduate to be named to an elite Canadian team.

“I would like to thank all of my former coaches especially the World Soccer Academy of Winnipeg. That is where I got the basics, the love for the game and the love to compete from coaches Eduardo, Costa and William!” said Dylan. 

Coach Eduardo Badescu was thrilled with the news that Dylan had been extended an invitation to Canada’s top team. “Dylan always had a big smile on his face when he came to the Academy. He truly loved the game and was a joy to teach. Canadian’s will get to see a great young soccer talent!” said Coach Eduardo.

“I’m hoping to show the staff (Canadian MNT) the abilities I have and hope there will be many more call-ups in the future,” beamed a proud Dylan Carreiro with his signature huge smile.
