[AEGEAN CUP] The U.S. under-17 men’s national team has been placed into Group B with Norway, Scotland and reigning champion France at the Aegean Cup, which runs from Jan. 20-25 in Manisa, Turkey. Richie Williams' roster includes 13 players who have been in residency since the fall. He also called up a pair of 15-year-olds, goalie Carlos Avilez and midfielder Nicholas Taitague.

This is the third international event for this edition of the U-17s, who went unbeaten 1-0-2 record during a tour of Madrid, Spain, last October, and most recently won the Nike International Friendlies by defeating Brazil 4-1 in the final match.

Two players on the team are based abroad: Luca de la Torre and Joe Gallardo, who both impressed at the Nike International Friendlies.

McKinzie Gaines was added to the Residency roster this spring.

    Yes, that's right, the Aegean Cup is a U16 tournament. This must be the U16 national team.
