He would begin to thrive on the international scene in when he was surprisingly included in the 21-man roster for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2017. He opened the tournament by scoring two goals against Ecuador as they went to tie the game. He added a third goal to his tally in the US team's game against New Zealand.
