Welcome to Boys in Not Gold, with the out-of-town exploits of Nashville SC players. Today, the college draft picks have begin their seasons, Concacaf Olympic Qualifying preliminary rosters are released, y mucho más.
In camp with Costa Rica
Since Leal is in Costa Rica’s U-23 camp right now, it should come as no surprise that he’s on the Ticos‘ preliminary roster for the Concacaf Olympic qualifying tournament. He and his teammates played the first of two friendlies in that camp against Honduras’s U-20 team this morning. It was a 0-0 closed-door match. They’ll also play again Thursday morning.
