[AMERICANS ABROAD] Marc Pelosi, the 18-year-old American midfielder, was one of three players Liverpool called up from its under-21 team for the Europa League.

Pelosi has played well for Liverpool in the Next Generation Series, a youth tournament for top European clubs. The young Reds reached the round of 16 with a 4-1 win over Inter Milan in their final group match.

Jordan Ibe, 17, and Pelosi were added to the squad on its "A" list and 20-year-old Hungarian Krizstian Adorjan was promoted on its "B" list.

Liverpool faces Russia's  Zenit St. Petersburg in the round of 32 of the Europa League.

Pelosi, who was born in Germany and therefore eligible to work in England, is a product of the De Anza Force in Northern California and played for the U.S. under-17 national team.

U.S. under-20 national team coach Tab Ramos had hoped to add Pelosi for Concacaf qualifying that begins shortly in Puebla, Mexico. Pelosi was not on the initial list of 18 players Ramps took to Toluca for final preparations.
