Maund is Official

Much to his and his teammates' delight, defender Aaron Maund has been approved for his change of association request through FIFA, which means that from now on he will be eligible to play for the United States and will be put on the official roster for the 2009 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship.

Maund holds dual citizenship with the United States and Trinidad & Tobago, but was required to request the change of association after representing T&T at the 2007 FIFA Under-17 World Cup. During the U-17 World Cup, he started in all three matches and played all but 16 minutes of the group phase.

As a freshman at Notre Dame, the Dorchester, Mass., native started all 21 games for the Fighting Irish at central defender.
