U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team

Head Coach: Tab Ramos

The U.S. U-20 Men’s National Team was grouped in the proverbial “Group of Death” for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey, where it faced Spain, France and Ghana. After a 4-1 loss to Spain in its first game, the USA tied eventual world champion France 1-1 before a 4-1 defeat to Ghana eliminated the team’s hope of moving on to the knockout stage.

The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team heads into 2014 with a fresh group of players that head coach Tab Ramos will begin grooming for the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand. The long process of forming a core group of players to build the team around for the next two years begins with a handful of domestic and international training camps as well as testing the players at prestigious international tournaments.

The team is scheduled to attend a pair of tournaments in the spring and summer of 2014. First, the team will attend the Dallas Cup in April – for the first time since 2010 and fifth time overall – before traveling to its first international tournament of the year in late July with a visit to the Northern Ireland Milk Cup.
