Summerville native and former Battery Academy player Jonathan Amon has earned his first call up for the US Men’s National Team for their October friendlies.
Amon, aged 19, currently plays for FC Nordsjaelland in Denmark primarily as a winger, having made his professional debut in 2017. He made 10 appearances in his first season, scoring two goals, including one in his first start against SC Horsens. He’s made made six appearances so far this year, bagging another two goals. Amon was also called up to the U-20 National side for their January camp at the beginning of 2018.
Amon is another of the new blood brought into the fold after the team missed out on the 2018 World Cup, with his stock rising higher when talked about amongst the next generation that includes Andrew Carleton, Tim Weah, Josh Sargent, Tyler Adams and more.
As a former Battery academy player, it’s another story of the Black and Yellow helping to ready players for the next step in their careers, and those of us in Charleston will be watching his development in this camp and beyond with a keen eye.
