Tab Ramos selects U.S. U-20 Men’s National Team roster for trip to Slovenia
CHICAGO (Aug. 30, 2019) — The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team will launch its new cycle with two matches in Rogaska Slatina, Slovenia vs. Croatia and United Arab Emirates U-23.
After the USA reached the quarterfinals of the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup earlier this summer, this training camp represents the start of a new two-year U-20 MNT cycle.
U-20 MNT head coach Tab Ramos has called 22 players, all born in 2001, to Slovenia. 2001 is the birth-year cut-off for the 2021 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
“We have now had consistent success at this level from a development standpoint, which has been supported by excellent results,” Ramos said. “I’m looking forward to helping a new group of players to continue to raise the bar higher than ever before.”
