DR Soccer will take a good team to the Olympic Games

The Dominican national under-23 soccer team, which will participate in the Olympic Games in Paris, will have players of the highest level, with a great pedigree in international soccer.

After knowing the list presented by the coach of the local team, the Spanish Ibai Gomez, it can be said that it has been the best soccer squad that has been structured in the history of the sport at the national level.

Among those called up are familiar faces such as Junior Firpo, Mariano Díaz, Oscar Urena, Edgar Pujol, Luiyi de Lucas, Francisco Marizán and Valencia youth player Peter Federico González.

Diaz did not renew his contract with Sevilla of Spain, where he had an unpleasant season, affected by injuries.

The list also includes Thomas Jungbauer, Nelson Lemaire, Edison Azcona, Israel Boatwright, Rafael Núñez, Dorny Romero, Edarlyn Reyes and Nowend Lorenzo.

In addition, Josué Báez, Ángel Montes de Oca, José De León, considered one of the pearls of Spanish soccer, Derek Cuevas, Heinz Morchel, Isac Báez, Omar de la Cruz and Joao Urbáez, plus goalkeepers Johan Guzmán, Xavier Valdez, Enrique Bosl and Anthony Núñez.

The Olympic Games will be played from July 26 to August 11 of this year, where the Dominicans will be in Group C, along with Spain, the favorite to advance to the next round, plus Egypt and Uzbekistan.

The Dominican squad will play a friendly on July 11 against the powerful French team, one of the favorites to win the gold medal.
