Ramos impressed with Alonso Hernandez
May 31st, 2013 6:13PM



[INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL ESPOIRS] One of players making his first trip with the U.S. under-20 national team is Mexican-American Alonso Hernandez, who debuted this spring for Liga MX powerhouse Monterrey. Following the 2-1 loss to Colombia during which Hernandez hit the base of the post, Ramos said the young Texan has put himself in a position to make the U.S. U-20 World Cup roster.

“Alonso Hernandez has played two games and he’s done quite well," Ramos said. "We’re impressed with that. I think he’s put himself in a good position in a possible selection to the World Cup. He’s been doing well. He fights for every ball. He works for the team and he creates opportunities. Once you add to that players like Jose Villarreal and Mario Rodriguez and guys we don’t have here up top, we’re starting to think he may be a good addition for us."

Villarreal remained with the LA Galaxy, while Rodriguez will play in the German youth cup final on Saturday with Kaiserslautern.

U.S. action at the International Festival Espoirs continues on Saturday with its third match against the Democratic Republic of Congo in Nice (kickoff: 9:30 am ET).
