Tab Ramos names 22-man roster for training camp in Italy

While more attention will be on the senior squad’s friendlies against Scotland and Austria, the U-20s will take on Iran’s U-20, Hellas Verona’s academy, and a to-be-named opponent (I’m leading towards Escalus FC, although I’d be fine with Mercutio).

In order to play a match, of course, you need players, and Tab Ramos will have 22 to pick from.

GOALKEEPERS (2): Santiago Castano (New York Red Bulls; Union City, N.J.), Ethan Horvath (Molde FK; Highlands Ranch, Colo.)

DEFENDERS (6):Kellyn Acosta (FC Dallas; Plano, Texas), Conor Donovan (Capital Area RailHawks Academy; Fuquay Varina, N.C.), Matias Fracchia (NJSA 04; Roselle Park, N.J.), Matthew Miazga (New York Red Bulls; Clifton, N.J.), Shaquell Moore (IMG Academy; Powder Springs, Ga.), John Requejo Jr. (Real So Cal; Carpinteria, Calif.)

MIDFIELDERS (8):Russell Canouse (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim; Lancaster, Pa.), Marco Delgado (Chivas USA; Glendora, Calif.), Junior Flores (Borussia Dortmund; Manassas Park, Va.), Romain Gall (FC Lorient; Herndon, Va.), Lynden Gooch (Sunderland AFC; Santa Cruz, Calif.), Emerson Hyndman (Fulham FC; Plano, Texas), Kristian Scott (Swansea City AFC; Winterbourne, Bristol), Omar Thompson (Wigan Athletic; Miami, Fla.)

FORWARDS (6):Kainoa Bailey (Bayer 04 Leverkusen; Henderson, Nev.), Benji Lopez (Real Salt Lake; San Diego, Calif.), Amando Moreno (New York Red Bulls; Morganville, N.J.), Zach Pfeffer (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim; Dresher, Pa.), Rubio Rubin (Unattached; Beaverton, Ore.), Ben Spencer (Molde FK; Albuquerque, N.M.)

US Soccer also subtly breaks the news that Molde has been annexed by Sweden. Seems odd to add an exclave like that, but that’s European politics for you.

Eleven players are based with European teams from four different nations: England, France, Germany and Sweden. England and Germany are most prominently represented with four players each; Sweden has two from Molde FK and France one from FC Lorient.

To my knowledge, these matches will not be streamed or broad/narrowcasted in any manner, but if we learn otherwise, we will certainly share that information so that we can all overreact.

    Damn it!!!!! Sorry I was overreacting about not being able to overreact.

  2. milty says:

    That’s a hot midfield

  3. Trent Hill says:

    Yeah, the midfield is pretty slick.

  4. Jaime says:

    I think this midfield is special but we need a complete team to compete, how is the defense in your opinion Trent ?

  5. Trent Hill says:

    Egh. Pretty weak. Acosta and Moore are talents. But, yeah, pretty weak. Good thing both the GKers are supposed to be top notch. The front 2 or 3 will be pretty sick too.
