The chosen one: Micah Burton gets call-up by USYNT

The Stars & Stripes have Micah Burton on speed dial lately. The young Austin FC Academy midfielder has been called up once again by the U-17 U.S. Men’s Youth National Team (MYNT).

It’s Burton’s fifth call-up to the U17 national team roster. We’re not surprised over here at CCS. Micah has popped off at the international level, scoring against both Uruguay and Portugal for the U.S. MYNT in 2022.

Now we’ll see what he brings against the Slovakia, Germany, and Czech Republic national teams in the 10-day Vaclav Jezek Youth Tournament, which starts September 16.

Burton is one of six players from the Austin FC organization to earn a U.S. Youth National Team call-up this year.
