HOW ACQUIRED: FC Dallas made Gonzalez their 10th Homegrown player signing on March 21, 2013.
A hulking yet nimble shot-stopper with poise beyond his years, Jesse Gonzalez had a breakout 2017. The 22-year-old is an exciting player and he is poised to have career numbers between the pipes for FC Dallas this season.
INTERNATIONAL: Dual-eligible for the US and Mexico, Gonzalez has risen through El Tri's youth system, but initially accepted an offer from Jurgen Klinsmann to join the US national team at their 2016 January camp, only to make an about-face and accept Mexico's call instead. Made two saves in a PK shootout to help Mexico win the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship (vs. Panama, 4-2 on PKs after a 1-1 draw) and qualify for the 2015 FIFA Under-20 World Cup. Gonzalez eventually landed with the US national team after a FIFA-approved one-time switch, and joined the MNT for the 2017 Gold Cup.
