Revolution II defender Colby Quiñones has been called up to the Puerto Rico Men's National Team for their first two games of the Concacaf Nations League. This marks the third Puerto Rico Men’s Senior Team call-up for the Revolution Academy product. Quiñones, still in search of his first senior cap, has previously appeared twice for Puerto Rico’s U-20 National Team.
Quiñones, 19, signed a professional contract with Revolution II on November 30, 2020 and became the first active Revolution Academy player to feature in a professional match. He has since appeared in 40 matches with New England’s second team, logging 24 starts and over 2,200 minutes played.
The Bedford, N.H. native, whose Puerto Rican heritage extends from his father’s side of the family, joined the Revolution Academy ahead of the 2017-18 season and made over 65 appearances in the youth ranks. He scored four goals while playing various positions including midfielder and fullback. Additionally, Quiñones was one of the first four members of the Revolution Academy’s residency program that began in 2019.
