International Duty

Called Up: Adrián Rosario, Benjamin Donato and Sebastian Otero Called Up by Puerto Rico


Inter Miami CF Academy players Adrián Rosario, Benjamin Donato and Sebastian Otero have been called up by Puerto Rico’s senior national team for their upcoming Concacaf Nations League matchups during the September international window.

Puerto Rico and the trio of Academy representatives are set to play two matchups at the Thomas Robinson Stadium in Nassau, Bahamas, first taking on Bahamas on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 6 p.m. ET, before facing Antigua and Barbuda on Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 7:06 p.m. ET.

This marks the second international call up for Donato and Otero since joining the Inter Miami Academy, while it is Rosario’s third.

Donato and Otero, 18 and 17 respectively, were previously called up by Puerto Rico’s senior national team for a training camp from June 10 to 17 at the Florida Blue Training Center.

Rosario, meanwhile, joins Puerto Rico’s senior squad for the first time after having represented the country’s U-17 side in the past. The 16-year-old defender most recently competed with the U-17 side at the 2023 Concacaf U-17 Championship in Guatemala in February, starting the team’s both matches in the competition as the team made it to the quarterfinals.

At the Club level, Donato and Otero currently turn out for the Academy’s U-19 team. Notably, the midfielders helped the team clinch the 2023 Spring UPSL Florida South Division title in June.

Rosario plays for the U-17 Academy team after previously being part of the U-16 side. Last Academy season, the defender helped the U-16s remain unbeaten to win the MLS NEXT U-16 Florida Division, finish in first place in its group at MLS NEXT Flex with an undefeated record to clinch a spot in the MLS NEXT Playoffs, and competed with the team in the 2023 Generation adidas Cup.

Donato, Otero and Rosario are among a growing list of current and former Inter Miami CF Academy players to be called up to a national team, including: Noah Allen, Nicholas Almeida, Edison Azcona, Israel Boatwright, Marco Cantalapiedra, Benjamin Cremaschi, Bryan Destin, Justin Ellis, Gabriel Florentino, Victor Fung, Tyler Hall, Cadriano Marsh, Santiago Morales, Kai Nesfield, Daniel Pinter, David Ruiz and Felipe Valencia, among others.
