CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Former Virginia standout and West Bromwich Albion forward, Daryl Dike, has been named to the U.S. Men’s National Team roster of 24 players for two Concacaf Nations League games at the end of March.

The USMNT is set for a return to familiar territory for Dike when they take on El Salvador at Exploria Stadium in Orlando, Fla.
