U.S. under-20 national team coach Thomas Rongen will take 16 players to a training camp May 30-June 6 in Canada as part of the team's preparation for the upcoming Under-20 World Cup.

The USA will face Canada twice during the camp, which will be the final camp before Rongen names his 21-player roster for the Under-20 World Cup and provide the USA with a first-hand look at their two Group E venues in Montreal and Ottawa.

The squad features four European-based players, including California-born midfielder Mitchell van den Beld, who has played in the Dutch national youth team program. Two U-17s earned callups: Sheanon Williams and Dane Shea. MLS regulars are not included for this trip.

U.S. UNDER-20 ROSTER:
GOALKEEPERS: Diego Restrepo (University of South Florida), Steve Sandbo (SMU);
DEFENDERS: Tony Beltran (UCLA), Amaechi Igwe (New England Revolution), Ofori Sarkodie (Indiana University), Sheanon Williams (U.S. U-17 residency), Julian Valentin (Wake Forest Univ.);
MIDFIELDERS: Bryan Arguez (DC United), Dane Shea (U.S. U-17 residency), Anthony Wallace (FC Dallas), Mitchell van den Beld (Utrecht, Netherlands);
FORWARDS: Andre Akpan (Harvard), Gabriel Ferrari (Sampdoria, Italy), Johann Smith (Bolton Wanderers, England), Preston Zimmerman (Hamburg, Germany), Sal Zizzo (UCLA).
