Defender Aboubacar Keita and the rest of the 2019 MLS Homegrown squad are set to compete against Chivas de Guadalajara’s Under-20 Team on Tuesday, July 30, as part of the 2019 MLS All-Star Week. The match is set to kick off at 5 p.m. ET at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Fla.
Keita, 19, joined Crew SC as a Homegrown Player on January 22, 2019. The defender made his 2019 regular-season debut for the Black & Gold as a starter in a road contest against Real Salt Lake (July 3), becoming the third-youngest player to make a regular-season start for the Crew at 19 years and 88 days. The Westerville-native made his first career regular-season home start on July 20 in a 2-1 win over the Montreal Impact.
Notably, Keita is the fourth player in Club history to be named to an MLS Homegrown Game roster.
