[CONCACAF UNDER-17 CHAMPIONSHIP] Coach Richie Williams named the 20 players that will represent the USA at the 2013 Concacaf U-17 Championship in Panama. Eleven are in their fourth semester at the Under-17 Residency Program in Bradenton, Fla.

The USA is looking to qualify for its 15th straight U-17 World Cup, which runs Oct. 17-Nov. 8 in the United Arab Emirates. The four teams that advance to the Concacaf U-17 Championship semifinals qualify the U-17 World Cup.

The U-17s will be captained by defender Shaquell Moore, who along with fellow defender John Requejo Jr. played in all 24 international matches last year for the U-17s. The leading scorer among the group is forward Rubio Rubin, who scored 11 goals in 22 international games in 2012.

The roster consists of 19 players who are members of the U.S. U-17 Residency Program. The only player not part of the Residency Program is midfielder Joel Sonora, who plays for Boca Juniors in Argentina and is the son of three-time MLS All-Star Diego Sonora. Defender Justen Glad joined the Residency Program for the first time for the 2013 Spring Semester.

The U-17s open qualifying against Haiti Sunday at Estadio Rommel Fernandez. The game kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET (TV: Fox Soccer, live). They then face Guatemala on April 11 (6:30 p.m. ET kickoff; 7 p.m. ET coverage on Fox Soccer).
