Youth Defender Maund Chooses The U.S.

Changing his association with FIFA's blessing, promising young Trinidad-born defender Aaron Maund is now a U.S. player.
Notre Dame defender Aaron Maund has had his petition to switch international allegiances approved by FIFA and has officially joined the U.S U-20 side.

Maund holds citizenship in the United States and Trinidad & Tobago and had previously represented T&T at the U-17 level, playing in three group stages matches of the 2007 U-17 World Cup.

In his freshman season with the Fighting Irish, Maund has started all 21 games in central defense.

He was named to the U.S. U-20 squad by head coach Thomas Rongen earlier in the week which will play in the CONCACAF U-20 Championship qualifying round. The tournament takes place in Trinidad & Tobago from March 6-15.
