New England Revolution midfielder Zachary Herivaux has been called up to the Haiti U-23 National Team ahead of CONCACAF Olympic qualifying.

Herivaux, who signed as a Homegrown Player on May 2, last represented Haiti in January when he participated in the 2015 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship. Herivaux appeared in all five of Haiti’s games, starting against El Salvador, Cuba and Honduras.

At the club level, the 19-year-old's only registered minutes have come in the U.S. Open Cup when he entered as a late substitute against the Charlotte Independence. Herivaux replaced Daigo Kobayashi in the losing effort.

Herivaux is scheduled to travel to Southern California on Sunday ahead of next week's tournament. Haiti will play Honduras, Mexico, and Costa Rica between Oct. 2 and Oct. 7 with the top two teams facing off in the tournament semifinals at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. The team that wins will automatically earn a spot in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The losing team will play in the third place game for the right to face Colombia in March for a berth in the Olympic Games.
