   July 19, 2010 (7:12 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

The US U-20 team will be participating in the Milk Cup in Northern Ireland at the end of this month and manager Thomas Rongen has made his decision on the 18 guys to make the final roster, which includes six Americans who play professionally outside the MLS.

Those six players:

Goalkeeper – Samir Badr (F.C. Porto)
Defender – Gale Agbossoumonde (S.C. Braga)
Defender – Greg Garza (G.D. Estoril Praia)
Midfielder – Alex Molano (NK Dinamo Zagreb)
Midfielder – Ernest Nungaray (Monarcas Morelia)
Forward – Adrian Ruelas (Santos Laguna)

You can view the full roster here.

The Milk Cup was founded in 1983, but the elite division (invitation only) was not added until 1995.  The tournament routinely includes some of the best national youth teams as well as English Premier League squads such as Manchester United, Rangers, Newcastle United and Everton.  A few names that have played in past Milk Cups:  David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Nicky Butt and Wayne Rooney.

The US won the 2005 Milk Cup, which featured a hat trick by one Charlie Davies in the final.  Other notable players from that 2005 team:  Chris Seitz, Dax McCarty, Lee Nguyen and Sal Zizzo.

    No Zahavi, did he not get released or is he still injured?

  2. Bobby says:

    I could be wrong on this, but since Zahavi played for Portugal at the U-17 stage, he has to fill one of those one-time FIFA transfer things like Jermaine Jones/Edgar Castillo, but he has not done that yet.

  3. Aaron says:

    I thought since it wasn’t a FIFA sponsored event he wouldn’t have to do that?

  4. Matt says:

    According to that, it is a mixture of his injury and him moving teams.
