[YOUTH] U.S. U-18 boys national team coach Mike Matkovich picked 36 players for a training camp Nov. 20-28 at The Home Depot Center.

The roster includes Real Salt Lake rookie Luis Gil and Victor Pineda, who signed a homegrown player contract with the Chicago Fire earlier this year.

It also includes two players from Mexican club Tigres: Juan Pablo Ocegueda and Uvaldo Luna Martinez.

Nine players are on MLS academy teams, including Daniel Metzger (New York), Jalen Robinson (D.C. United) and Will Trapp (Columbus), who earned U-15/16 Development Academy Starting XI honors last season.

This will be the final training camp before Matkovich selects his team to travel to Israel in December.
