CHICAGO (Aug. 12, 2015) – U.S. Under-14 Boys’ National Team head coach Brian Johnson has gathered a 36-player group for the team’s fifth camp of 2015 to be held at U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center in Carson, California.
Following the camp in Serbia, 58 players gathered in Carson with Johnson for the inaugural BNT Futures training camp. The three-day camp focused on identifying the most talented players in the ’00 and ’01 birth year that appear to be on a later physical development growth path and/or are born in the second half of the year. Eight players that participated in that camp are a part of this group.
It will be the first National Team camp for Stefan Stojanovic (Sockers FC) and Salvador Pliego (New York Red Bulls).
Thirty-two players from the group are currently registered with a Development Academy club for the 2015-16 season, which kicks off on Aug. 29.
