The Dominican Republic have made a late change to their squad list, two days before their 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup opener against the Flying Eagles.
According to the official website of the Dominican Football Federation, SPAL youth teamer Thomas Jungbauer has been called in to replace defender Sebatián Mañón
