SALT LAKE CITY – Real Salt Lake goalkeeper David Ochoa has been called into the Mexican National Team camp ahead of fixtures against Suriname and Jamaica in the CONCACAF Nations League.

Ochoa is yet to debut for the Mexican national first team, he has represented El Tri at the under-21 level while also representing the United States at the under 23, 20, 18, and 16 levels before announcing that he will represent Mexico on the international stage.

Ochoa, 21, is yet to see any MLS action this year following an injury in the final preseason game against Portland. Veteran goalkeeper Zac MacMath filled the void left by Ochoa and has never looked back. However, despite the lack of playing at the club level, Ochoa is still receiving interest from El Tri and is set to showcase his ability at the international level.

Ochoa’s Real Salt Lake contract expires at the end of the 2022 season and it has been reported that he is gathering interest from clubs both in Mexico and in Europe. If Ochoa does ultimately leave Real Salt Lake at the end of the season he would do so on a free transfer joining the likes of Richie Ledezma, and Sebastian Soto, among others to leave the club on a free.

Real Salt Lake will next return to the pitch on June 18 when they host the San Jose Earthquakes at Rio Tinto Stadium. The team has been granted time off from manager Pablo Mastroeni and will next train on Friday, June 10.

As of late, Ochoa has not been seen participating with the Real Salt Lake first team and has been instead training and playing with the Real Monarchs in the MLS Next Pro competition. His absence has been a result of personal issues, according to Mastroeni who is yet to share more information on the absence of Ochoa.
