Twenty-One U-20 Players Called for Four Nation’s Tournament in Germany

CHICAGO (Oct. 6, 2015) – Twenty-one players have been called to represent the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team at the Four Nation’s Tournament in Germany.

The team will compete against three other nations: Germany on Oct. 6, Scotland on Oct. 9 and Mexico on Oct. 12.

The U-20s were last on the pitch in August, when they travelled to Serbia to compete in the Stevan Vilotic-Cele Tournament; the team finished in fifth place. That served as the first action for the group in this new U-20 cycle. The group started slowly, dropping its first two matches to the host Serbia and France, but concluded with a win against Israel.

Twenty of the players on the roster have ties to the Development Academy. Ten players on the squad play soccer at the collegiate level, while nine players compete for MLS clubs, one player for a Spanish La Liga club, one for an English Premier League Teams, and two for Academy teams. Every player on this roster was born in 1997.
