[HOMEGROWN WATCH] FC Dallas homegrown keeper Richard Sanchez became the first American-born player to win a FIFA men's title when he started for Mexico in its 2-0 win over Uruguay to win the Under-17 World Cup before 105,000 fans at Mexico City's Azteca Stadium on Sunday.

On Monday, Sanchez and his teammates visited Mexico President Felipe Calderon at his residence at Los Pinos in Mexico City.

Sanchez, who was born in California, grew up in Texas and spent time at Spain’s Atletico Madrid before joining FC Dallas Juniors two years ago, was one of three U-17 players to speak at the reception.

"It's incredible what's going on," he said. "And we appreciate it very much. It was a marvelous experience."

AGUDELO EYES RECORD. Juan Agudelo scored two goals in New York's 5-0 win over Toronto FC and has now scored four goals in 2011. He needs only one more goal to tie the single-season record by a homegrown player, set Andy Najar in 2010.
