Friedel names U19 roster for training camp
U.S. Under-19 Men’s National Team head coach Brad Friedel has named a 24-player roster for a domestic training camp set to take place from Oct. 3-10 in Chula Vista, Calif.
During the training camp, the U-19s will face Liga MX side Xolos’ reserve squad at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. PT on Oct. 7, and will then play another match at 4 p.m. PT on Oct. 9, with the opponent still to be determined. This camp is the U-19 MNT’s return to action after its appearance in the Stevan Vilotic Tournament in Subotica, Serbia last month.
The U.S. roster includes seven players who participated in the 2016 Stevan Vilotic Tournament, including goal scorers Djordje Mihailovic and Ethan Zubak. Out of the 24-player roster, 10 compete in the MLS, seven play for Development Academy clubs, three play at the collegiate level, two compete in the NASL and two play in the USL. Additionally, 22 out of the 24 players called up have Academy ties.
The U-19 MNT enters its first training camp of the year with a 6-8-0 overall record in 2016, a record that includes winning the Slovakia Cup back in April.
