EDMONTON, Canada -- FC Edmonton announced Thursday the signing of El Salvador international Dustin Corea. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 23-year-old midfielder appeared in two games for the Cuscatlecos during the recently completed CONCACAF Gold Cup, netting the equalizer in a 1-1 draw with Costa Rica. Prior to the Gold Cup, he started in a World Cup qualifier at St. Kitts & Nevis on June 11 and went 73 minutes in a 2-2 tie.
“It’s taken a bit of time to get this signing of Dustin all done and dusted,” FC Edmonton head coach Colin Miller said. “Obviously we wanted to wait till he was finished with the Gold Cup. He comes very highly regarded and he played well during the time he was selected during the Gold Cup tournament.”
Corea competed for FAS during the 2015 Salvadoran Clausura and scored five goals in 20 games. He previously played in Europe with Skive (Denmark), Jönköpings Södra IF (Sweden), Blokhus (Denmark). His professional career started with El Salvador’s Atletico Marte in 2011.
FC Edmonton currently occupies second place in the 2015 North American Soccer League Fall Season standings.
