Ramos to take 17 pros to France

TAGS:  under-20 world cup


[U.S. U-20 MEN] U.S. under-20 national team coach Tab Ramos will bring 20 players -- 17 pros and three collegians -- to Vichy, France, to train for five days and play two friendlies against the France U-20s on May 17 and May 19.

The USA failed to qualify for the 2011 Under-20 World Cup, resulting in the decision not to renew U.S. head coach Thomas Rongen’s contract at the end of this year.

Sean Cunningham and Josh Gatt (both Molde in Norway), Conor Doyle (Derby County in England), Kofi Sarkodie (Houston Dynamo) and Luis Gil (Real Salt Lake) have all played for their first teams this season.

Six players -- Anthony Brooks, Cody Cropper, Jerome Kiesewetter, Daniel Potts, Cunningham and Gil -- are age-eligible for the U-20 team’s next cycle that will lead into the 2013 Concacaf U-20 Championship and 2013 U-20 World Cup.

U.S. U-20 Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (2): Cody Cropper (Ipswich Town; Athens, Ga.), Brian Sylvestre (Vancouver Whitecaps; Hollywood, Fla.)
DEFENDERS (6): Anthony Brooks (Hertha Berlin; Berlin, Germany), Sean Cunningham (Molde; Troy, Mich.), Sacir Hot (New York Red Bulls; Fair Lawn, N.J.), Sebastien Ibeagha (Duke Univ.; Missouri City, Texas), Daniel Potts (West Ham United; London, England), Kofi Sarkodie (Houston Dynamo; Huber Heights, Ohio)
MIDFIELDERS (6): Luis Gil (Real Salt Lake; Garden Grove, Calif.), Sebastian Lletget (West Ham United; San Francisco, Calif.), Dillon Powers (Univ. of Notre Dame; Plano, Texas), Kelyn Rowe (UCLA; Newport Beach, Calif.), Conor Shanosky (D.C. United; Sterling, Va.), Donny Toia (Real Salt Lake: Tucson, Ariz.)
FORWARDS (6): Terrence Boyd (Hertha Berlin; Berlin, Germany), Conor Doyle (Derby County; McKinney, Texas), Josh Gatt (Molde; Plymouth, Mich.), Joe Gyau (Hoffenheim; Silver Spring, Md.), Jerome Kiesewetter (Hertha Berlin; Berlin, Germany), Victor Ulloa (FC Dallas: Wylie, Texas)
