Academy Winger Edison Azcona Called Up to Dominican Republic National Team

Inter Miami CF Academy standout Edison Azcona has been called up to the Dominican Republic’s senior national team. The young winger will join the team ahead of a pair of friendlies against Puerto Rico and Serbia in preparation for World Cup and Olympic qualifiers. 

The group will convene for camp beginning on Jan. 15 ahead of the match against Puerto Rico, set for Jan. 19, at 3 p.m. ET at Estadio El Cóndor in La Vega. The team will then face Serbia at Estadio Olímpico Félix Sánchez in Santo Domingo on Jan. 25, at 4 p.m. ET. 

Azcona, 17, featured for the Club’s USL League One affiliate Fort Lauderdale CF in 2020. The Academy standout impressed at that level, earning League One All-League Second Team honors and finishing as a finalist for the League One Young Player of the Year award.

Azcona was previously called up to the Dominican national team for the first time in Oct. 2020.
