Philadelphia Union 2 midfielder Anthony Ramirez is part of a 34-player roster that kicked off a senior national team camp for El Salvador this week.
The roster includes 13 U.S. based players.
Ramirez, 17, has been a regular with Union 2 over the past year in his second season with the academy after joining the U17s in 2019 from North Carolina Fusion.
One of the highlights of his past year with Union 2 was a golazo he scored during a tournament in Colombia in October.
