U-16 BNT to Hold 36 Player Camp at IMG Academy

CHICAGO (Sept. 11, 2018) – The U.S. Under-16 Boys’ National Team will gather from Sept. 12-19 for a training camp at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.

U.S. U-16 BNT head coach Shaun Tsakiris has called up 36 players – all born in 2003 – for this age group’s fifth training camp of 2018. The camp follows rosters called up at the first ever U.S. Men’s Youth National Team Summit in January, domestic camp at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center in March, 15th Torneo delle Nazioni in April that included a third place finish after the USA defeated Japan 2-1, and the most recent camp, a concurrent training camp at IMG Academy with the U-17 MNT.

This group of players moved up from the U-14 level for 2018 and will spend two years as the U-16 BNT before moving on to the U-18 level. These players are all age-eligible for the 2019 U-17 World Cup, which has an age cut-off of players born on or after Jan. 1, 2002 but will eventually be the core age group for the team that will attempt to qualify for the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Of the 36 players called into camp, 34 currently play in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy.

Sixteen players are making their debut with the 2018-19 U-16 BNT cycle.

Roster by Position:
GOALKEEPERS (4): Anjan Chakravarti (LA Breakers FC; West Hollywood, Calif.), Eliot Jones (New England Revolution; New Britain, Conn.), Gavin Krenecki (Sacramento Republic FC; Fair Oaks, Calif.), Andre Zuluaga (Kendall SC; Miami, Fla.)
