Real Name: Francisco Calvo
HT: 5' 10"
Age: 26 (07/08/1992)
Birthplace: San Jose, Costa Rica

HOW ACQUIRED: Signed by Minnesota United FC on Dec. 28, 2016.

The 26-year-old Costa Rican international can play left back or center back and is an accomplished set-piece threat. The Loons captain does well to stretch the pitch and create imbalances in the attack. He thrives with teams that possess the ball, but is athletic enough to push up the pitch with ease and stay with his marks when under pressure

INTERNATIONAL: Calvo has 39 caps for Los Ticos, and was a starter in 2018 World Cup Qualifying victories against Trinidad & Tobago and Panama as well as in the 2016 Copa America Centenario matches against Colombia and the United States. The former Costa Rica Under-20 international earned his first senior cap in 2011.

OUTSIDE MLS: Calvo scored nine goals in 24 league games for Deportivo Saprissa during the 2016 Primera División winter season, which ran from July through December. Calvo has previously played for Herediano, Perez Zeledon and Santos Guapiles in his native Costa Rica, as well as a spell with Nordsjaelland in Denmark.

NOTES: MLS All-Star (2018)
