SALT LAKE CITY – Real Salt Lake’s Diego Luna will play for the U-20 United States Youth National Team in Marbella, Spain.

The 19-year-old midfielder has played 15 games for RSL and started in three of them.

This marks the second time that Luna has been called up. He was also on the U-20 roster for January training camps.

In ten matches with the USA, Luna has posted three goals and five assists.

On Saturday, March 25, Real Salt Lake will play its second consecutive home game against the St. Louis City SC. The newest expansion team in the MLS started the season with two wins over Charlotte and Austin FC.
