[U.S. UNDER-20 MEN] Eight foreign-based players -- including three from Mexican club Santos -- and two MLS players -- 2010 No. 1 SuperDraft pick Omar Salgado (Vancouver) and Victor Pineda (Chicago) -- were among the 26 players Tab Ramos named to the U.S. under-20 national team training camp Feb. 20-March 1 in Clermont, Fla.

As part of the camp, the U-20s will face the reserve teams from FC Dallas on Feb. 26 and Montreal Impact on Feb. 29 at the Disney Wide World of Sports complex.

Four players are based at clubs in Mexico -- Daniel Cuevas, Jesus Guzman and Benji Joya at Santos and Juan Pablo Ocegueda with Tigres -- and one each in Norway, Germany, Poland and Serbia.
