During the Slovenia Nations Cup, the U-19 U.S. MYNT will play Malta on September 21, Croatia on September 23 and Scotland on September 27.

“Owen has become a regular and strong contributor to our first team this season, which is a testament to his maturity and work ethic,” said Austin FC Sporting Director Claudio Reyna. “We’re very happy for him to have this opportunity to represent his country, and he has a bright future ahead of him.”
