Richards will be joining fellow FC Dallas players Brandon Servania and Paxton Pomykal who have been with the U20s during the opening rounds. Ajax's Sergino Dest and Hannover's Sebastian Soto were also added.

"We needed to make a couple of moves at this time to address depth needed in certain positions for specific situations which may arise in the second round," Ramos said. "We certainly feel that the players we let go were highly productive in helping to get the team to this point and will continue to be part of our process moving forward."

After sweeping Group A play, the U20s face Costa Rica on Friday, Nov. 16 at 6:30 p.m. CT and Honduras on Monday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. CT at IMG Academy Stadium in Bradenton, Fla. Both will be broadcasted on Univision Deportes Network.

Richards is on loan with FC Bayern Munich through the Elite Player Development partnership between the two clubs.
