CHARLOTTE – Charlotte FC's Christian Makoun has been called up to the Venezuelan National Team to aid them in the World Cup Qualifying games against Bolivia and Uruguay.

The center back has begun to break through with the Venezuelan national team and has been called up to the senior squad for multiple World Cup Qualifiers this cycle. Makoun has been named as a substitute in Venezuela’s last five CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifiers but has yet to make his senior debut.
