Sacramento Republic FC midfielder Jeremy Hall and Harrisburg City Islanders midfielder Manolo Sanchez have both been selected by the Puerto Rico National Team for Saturday’s charity exhibition against Major League Soccer’s Orlando City SC.

All proceeds from Saturday’s match at Orlando City Stadium will go to United For Puerto Rico, an initiative that raises funds and aids recovery efforts for the island following the hurricanes that passed through the region this summer.

Hall had a standout season for Sacramento as he led the USL with 2,042 completed passes in the regular season and playoffs, and recorded two goals in 33 appearances for Republic FC in league action overall. A veteran of Major League Soccer, Hall has previously made six appearances for Puerto Rico having previously competed for both the U.S. U17 and U20 National Teams.

Sanchez recorded two goals in 10 appearances for the City Islanders this past season, and reached 50 all-time appearances in the USL regular season in the process. A former member of both San Antonio FC and the New York Red Bulls II, Sanchez has also made six appearances for Puerto Rico, and scored his first goal for the country in an exhibition against India last year.

Saturday’s game is set to kick off at 7 p.m. ET, and will also mark the final game in an Orlando City SC uniform for Brazilian legend Kaka, who previously announced his departure from the club following the conclusion of the MLS regular season. Tickets are available at
