Salcedo has previously been involved in youth national team camps, but this is the first time he's reached this level. In a eal Salt Lake press release, Salcedo expressed his excitement about the call-up.
"It's always exciting to represent your country, and this is a very big camp for me," he said. "I'm just really excited to show the coaching staff how much I've developed since I came to Real Salt Lake, and how much my game has grown in MLS."
