Cole Campbell, 18-year-old Dortmund youth forward, switches affiliation to US from Iceland

CHICAGO (AP) — Cole Campbell, a Borussia Dortmund youth team forward who turned 18 last month, has been approved by FIFA for a change of affiliation to the United States from Iceland.

Campbell is the son of former Iceland women’s team forward Rakel Karvelsson, who was born in Los Angeles and played college soccer at North Carolina. His father is American.

He signed with Dortmund ahead of the 2022-23 season and has been playing for its under-19 team this season.

The U.S. Soccer Federation confirmed the switch Thursday.
