FC Dallas signed 16-year-old goalkeeper Richard Sanchez as a homegrown player on Friday, giving the team a league-record six homegrowns on its first-team roster.
Sanchez, a goalkeeper for Mexico's Under-17 national team, joins Bryan Levya, Ruben Luna, Moises Hernandez, Victor Ulloa and Jon Top as homegrown signings for the MLS Cup runners-up.
The 6-foot-3 Sanchez will have the chance to shine for his country this summer, as Mexico hosts the FIFA U-17 World Cup. He'll join FC Dallas' preseason training for the next couple of weeks before reporting to Mexico's camp on March 6.
