Matt Olosunde spent most of his time as a youngster playing football. Aged six, he joined Princeton FC, a club based in Olosunde's hometown of Trenton, New Jersey. He spent a lot of his youth playing as a right winger, before making the switch to play right-back.

The defender's father, Peter, said: "You couldn't get [Matt] off the field. When he was 10, we’d be at the indoor facility and he’d keep joining the next practice session - three or four sessions until we finally said, ‘We can’t stay all night!’”

Olosunde soon progressed through to the USA national team at youth level. Between 2013 and 2015, he was capped 30 times for the U-17 side. He even represented the USA at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup where he made one appearance.
