Academy News: Christian Ortiz Called to U-18 USMNT Camp

January 31, 2019

Barça Residency Academy U-19 defender Christian Ortiz has been called to his first ever U.S. Soccer Men’s National Team Camp. Ortiz will attend the first U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team camp of the year at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California from February 1-7.

U-20 MNT head coach Tab Ramos will direct the camp and has called in 20 players, all born in 2001.

All 20 players are age-eligible for the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup. The training camp presents a prime opportunity for the U-18 players to impress Ramos as he prepares a roster for this summer’s tournament in Poland.

Ortiz, 17, joined Barça Residency Academy during the inaugural 2017-18 season and helped lead the U-17 team to a historic 3rd place finish at their first ever DA Championships. This season, Ortiz has been a vital part of the Barca Residency Academy U-19’s success as they are currently ranked the No. 5 team in the nation by Top Drawer Soccer with an 8-3-1 record.
