The March international window has closed, but several MLS NEXT Pro players gained valuable international experience with their national teams this month.
Chicago Fire II forward Omari Glasgow featured in Guyana’s two Concacaf Nations League matches, helping his squad earn four points out of a possible six. The 19-year-old remains a crucial prospect for the national team going forward and will head back to MLS NEXT Pro action after missing Matchday 1.
Austin FC II midfielder Bobosi Byrauhanga logged 89 minutes in Uganda’s 1-0 victory over Tanzania in African Cup of Nations Qualifying on Tuesday. After not featuring in Friday’s 1-0 loss, Byrauhanga helped Uganda move to 1-2-1 in qualifying.
North Texas SC midfielder Carl Sainte featured in Haiti’s two Concacaf Nations League matches this window, as Les Grenadiers topped Group B of League B with 16 points. Sainte came off the bench in a 4-1 win over Montserrat on Saturday before starting and playing 89 minutes in Tuesday’s 3-1 victory over Bermuda.
Haiti’s first-place finish punched them a ticket into the 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup group stage this summer.
