Healey, Donatelli, and Dos Santos Named to U.S. National Futsal Team

CONCACAF Championship Qualifier Begins May 4

Baltimore, MD – U.S. Futsal National Team head coach Keith Tozer has named 14 players to represent the United States in the Qualifying matches for the CONCACAF Futsal Championship in San Jose, Costa Rica. The USA will face Canada in a two-game play-in series, the winner of which will qualify for a spot in the 2016 CONCACAF Futsal Championship. The series will kickoff on Wednesday, May 4 at 10 p.m. ET. Fans can follow the action on Twitter @ussoccer_ynt.

MASL Defender of the Year Pat Healey is once again named to the US National Futsal team and this year is joined by Blast teammates Tony Donatelli and Adriano Dos Santos.

All 14 players selected were a part of the USA’s 24-man roster for the April training camp held in Redondo Beach, Calif. The roster features two goalkeepers, three defenders, six midfielders, and three forwards.

 “Having the 24 players was huge for us because this is the largest camp we’ve ever had in twenty years,” said Tozer. “Players had a high level of competition here and there was a great learning process going on. In years past, we brought in 12 players and took 12 players. We’ve had a very busy last six months and we’re excited to begin these games with the men we’ve identified to represent the U.S.”

Five of the 14 players chosen by Tozer were on the USA’s 2012 CONCACAF Futsal Championship roster: Kraig Chiles, Patrick Healey, Bryan Perez, Nelson Santana and Danny Waltman.
