New England Revolution's Farrell dreaming of USA call-up

New England Revolution young gun Andrew Farrell admits it would be a dream come true to one day selected for the USA national team.

The 22-year old defender has emerged as an integral part of the Revs line-up at the Gillette Stadium since arriving via the 2013 MLS SuperDraft where he was taken with pick number one.

It is believed that US boss Juergen Klinsmann has been running the rule over Farrell ahead of this summer's World Cup and although that tournament may be too early for him, the Louisville Cardinals alum is revelling in the fact that he has now emerged on the national team radar.

"That's my biggest dream ever," he said. "Since I was a little kid, I always wanted to represent my country.

"My agent always tells me, it's all in due time.

"Obviously there are a lot of good players in a lot of different spots and you've just got to make sure you're doing the right things. Then you'll get noticed and you'll get your time.

"Hopefully at some point, if I keep doing the right things on and off the field, keep working hard and keep improving, then hopefully I get that call."

Farrell has been a mainstay in the Revs defence since making his debut in March 2013, appearing in 40 of 41 league matches.
