OWTY was introduced to Fernandes in early 2014.

Fernandes, a ’96, was a key piece in the Cruziero Youth Academy for the previous four seasons, helping lead the squad to a number of international titles during his time at the club.

He was called in by Tab Ramos on few occasions for the 2014-2015 U.S. Under-20 World Cup cycle, including the competitive 2014.

Ft. Lauderdale has been very active this off-season acquiring another former U.S. U20 midfielder in Victor Pineda as well as Brazilian attacking midfielder Adrianinho. Fernandes will likely battle for minutes as box-to-box midfielder.
