CHICAGO (Friday, April 27) – UCLA midfielder Sal Zizzo has replaced Jesus Padilla on the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team roster for their match against Argentina on May 15 in Rochester, N.Y. Padilla was unable to join the Under-20s for the match due to club commitments.
"Jesus is no longer available to us for this camp because of his club commitments with Chivas de Guadelajara,” said U.S. U-20 head coach Thomas Rongen. “He had initially agreed to come into this camp, but is now unavailable. He is a player we like very much, and we will continue to keep him in our pool and can hopefully get him into another camp soon."
Zizzo, a midfielder at UCLA, was a member of the U.S. U-20 for 2007 qualifying in Panama.
The match against the reigning U-20 world champs will be played at PAETEC Park. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. ET, and fans can follow the match live with streaming video coverage on ussoccer.com’s MatchACCESS.
Tickets for the match against Argentina, ranging from $18 to $35, are now on sale and can be purchased at PAETEC Park, by phone from Ticketmaster at (585) 232-1900 or at ticketmaster.com.
