The annual Milk Cup tournament is a favorite on this site and Tab Ramos has named his 18-man roster for this year’s tournament. The roster includes five players from last year’s team (Cody Cropper, Juan Pablo Ocegueda, Boyd Okwuonu, Walker Zimmerman and Victor Pineda), which finished in third place. The roster also has forward Mario Rodriguez listed with Kaiserslautern in Germany. The US’ first game will be next Saturday against Denmark.
