18 Year old Deybi Flores has gotten some major recognition from his home country, as the Whitecaps rookie has been called up to the Honduras U-20 Men's Team ahead of the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand in June.

The official press release is here.

According to the release, Flores will miss 5 matches due to the call-up, beginning with the May 16th match against the Seattle Sounders, and could return by June 20th.

It just reminds of the young talent waiting in the wings on the Whitecaps roster, as Christian Dean was called up to the US U-23 squad for a friendly last month.

Congratulations to Deybi, and let's wish him the best of luck at the tournament!
