Career Summary

HOW ACQUIRED: Signed a Homegrown contract Jan. 26, 2021

Azcona was named to the USL League One All-League Second Team in 2020. He was also nominated as a finalist for the USL League One Young Player of the Year award. He was among Fort Lauderdale CF's leading scorers and the top tackler while being a regular fixture in the starting XI.

OUTSIDE MLS: Azcona, 17, stood out in his first season at the professional level as an Academy registered player for Fort Lauderdale CF in 2020, earning a pair of end-of-season honors for his performance; the Dominican/American winger was named to the USL League One All-League Second Team, and was nominated as a finalist for the USL League One Young Player of the Year award. Azcona played the second-most minutes of any player on the team with 1,284. He also started in each of the team’s 16 games, the only player to do so. The La Romana, Dominican Republic native shined in that time, registering three goals and three assists – putting him in the top two in both categories for Fort Lauderdale – and led the team in tackles. 

INTERNATIONAL: The winger was called up by the Dominican Republic senior national team in Oct. 2020 and again in the most recent international window, receiving his second call-up on Jan. 7, 2020.
