U-20 MNT Begins New Cycle at Stevan Vilotic Tournament in Serbia

CHICAGO (Aug. 28, 2015) – U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team head coach Tab Ramos has named a 23-player roster that will represent the United States at the 2015 Stevan Vilotic-Cele Tournament in Serbia.

The group will begin training on Aug. 30 in Subotica and begin tournament play against Serbia on Sept. 3, before traveling to Senta for a match against France on Sept. 4. The team will conclude the tournament with a placement match on Sept. 7.

“We’re giving a bunch of players an opportunity here to make an impression in the beginning, and I’m excited to be starting a new cycle that will hopefully end in the World Cup in South Korea in 2017,” Ramos said. “We’re taking 23 players in this camp, and the main reason for that is that we have back-to-back games. We play Serbia on Sept. 3 and we play France on Sept. 4, so those will be two completely different lineups and everybody will be able to get on the field and show themselves and show themselves against excellent competition.”

The Stevan Vilotic-Cele Tournament is the first test of a new U-20 cycle for the U.S. All 23 players from this group were born in 1997, although Erik Palmer-Brown has experience in this age group as he was a part of the 2015 U-20 MNT World Cup team. Thirteen other players participated in MNT camps with the U-18 team earlier this year.

Fourteen players from this roster represent clubs in Major League soccer, while five play in college, and the English Premier League, Bundesliga and USL each have single representatives on the squad. 22 players are products of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy.

ussoccer.com: With this being the first camp of a new cycle, how did you go about selecting this roster? Tab Ramos: “With all of our youth national teams we’re pretty much integrated, so we’re familiar with the players that we all get coming up, so in this case I’m familiar with this particular group. I think in this camp I’m giving an opportunity to the full depth ch Read more
