FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution II defender François Dulysse has received a call up to the Haiti Men’s National Team for a pair of international friendlies against Bahrain (Sept. 1) and Jordan (Sept. 4), with both matches set to be played in Manama, Bahrain.
Dulysse, 22, earns his second senior national team call-up after representing Haiti at the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup. The defender made his international debut in a group stage match against Canada, starting and playing 78 minutes. Hailing from Greenacres, Fla., Dulysse played all 270 minutes for the Haiti Under-23 team during the Concacaf Olympic Qualifying group stage in March. He was also capped on three additional occasions for the Haiti Under-20 team during the 2018 Concacaf U-20 Championships.
A graduate of Manhattan College where he played his final two collegiate seasons, Dulysse signed his first professional contract with Revolution II on Dec. 8, 2020. He was subsequently selected by the New England Revolution in the second round (51st overall) of the 2021 MLS SuperDraft on Jan. 21, 2021. Dulysse made his professional debut on April 10 in Revolution II’s season opener and has since played in seven games, starting six.
Revolution II continues its USL League One regular season on Wednesday, Sept. 1 hosting FC Tucson at Gillette Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
