[MARBELLA CUP] U.S. Under-20 national team head coach Tab Ramos has named a 19-player roster for the team’s upcoming international friendlies against Canada, Scotland and Azerbaijan Oct. 6-17 at the 2012 Marbella Cup in Spain. The roster is dominated by pros, including Luis Gil of Real Salt Lake, Jose Villarreal of the Los Angeles Galaxy, Benji Joya of Mexican club Santos, Will Packwood of Birmingham City and Jonathan Brooks of Hertha Berlin.
