Former Temple star Tony Donatelli will be representing the red, white and blue in a two-game series against Canada with a berth into the CONCACAF Futsal Championship on the line.
Donatelli scored 22 goals and added 20 assists in his career with the Owls from 2002-2005, which still ranks him third in career assists and eighth in points in program history. He most recently played professional with Harrisburg City Islanders last season, making three appearances after playing for six different clubs in the USL and NASL from 2006-2014.
While still in college, he also played for the Ocean City Nor'easters in the PDL (formerly known as the Ocean City Barons). Over the course of his professional career, the Glenside native has 26 goals and 22 assists in 167 appearances.
U.S. Futsal head coach Keith Tozer chose Donatelli as one of three forwards in his 14-man roster. The U.S. kicks off its two-game series with Canada at 10 p.m. in Costa Rica tonight and play the second leg on Thursday.
The sixth edition of the CONCACAF Futsal Championship will be staged in San Jose, Costa Rica from May 8-14 with a total of eight teams. The U.S. has won the competition twice, in 1996 and 2004. Costa Rica are the defending champs, having won it in 2012.
