Callens: "Copa America Call is a Dream"

It's been a big couple of days for Alex Callens.

The NYCFC defender has earned his first-ever major international tournament callup with the Peruvian National team as they prepare to head into Copa America in Brazil.

As he reports to national team duty after Columbus on Saturday, he will be competing in two World Cup Friendlies against Costa Rica and Colombia before the tournament begins. In the first round of Copa America, Peru will face off against Venezuela, Bolivia, and Brazil. The matches will take place from June 4 to June 22. 

We congratulate the defender on his call up! Watch what he has to say on the call up…
