Arizona United SC’s Jonathan Top has not featured internationally for the past two years, but a call-up to Guatemala’s U-23 national team is providing the Texas native with a grand opportunity.
Top’s Guatemala side is among the seven Central American Football Union (UNCAF) teams looking to advance to the 2015 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Championship, set to be held in the U.S. this October. The two UNCAF group winners earn a spot, and Guatemala was placed in Group B against Honduras (Aug. 13) and Belize (Aug. 15).
“I’m looking forward to this whole process to qualify for the Olympics,” Top said. “We’re going to prepare ourselves for the qualifiers and I’m excited to help out the team, take advantage of this experience and bring that back to Arizona.”
