MOST COMMENTED

[COPA DEL ATLANTICO] U.S. under-18 men’s national team head coach Javier Perez called up 18 players for the Copa del Atlantico Jan. 30-Feb. 8 in Las Palmas, Spain. The squad includes 16-year-old Erik Palmer-Brown of Sporting Kansas City and highly regarded midfielder Emerson Hyndman, who plays for Fulham's U-18s.

Omar Castro of Eintracht Braunschweig has been named to his first camp or tournament roster under Perez. He's the only other foreign-based player on the team.

The squad consists of players born in 1996 and 1997, so they will mostly be competing for spots on the U.S. team that will attempt to qualify for the 2017 Under-20 World Cup.

The USA will open against Spain on Feb. 4, before facing Argentina and the Canary Islands.

Five of the team’s ’97-born players (Mukwelle Akale, JT Marcinkowski, Tommy Redding, Ben Swanson and Palmer-Brown) were also included for the U-18s' last international tournament in Limoges, France.

U.S. Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (2): Christian Herrera (Real Salt Lake AZ; Las Cruces, N.M.), JT Marcinkowski (San Jose Earthquakes; Alamo, Calif.)
DEFENDERS (5): Chase Gasper (Bethesda-Olney; Alexandria, Va.), Shaquell Moore (Unattached; Powder Springs, Ga.), Erik Palmer-Brown (Sporting KC; Lee’s Summit, Mo.), Tommy Redding (Unattached; Oviedo, Fla.), Tyler Turner (Unattached; Meriden, Conn.)
MIDFIELDERS (6): Mukwelle Akale (Minnesota Thunder; Minneapolis, Minn.), Omar Castro (Eintracht Braunschweig/GER; Plant City, Fla.), Emerson Hyndman (Fulham/ENG; Plano, Texas), Sebastian Saucedo (Real Salt Lake AZ; Casa Grande, Ariz.), Ben Swanson (Crew Soccer Acad.; Grove City, Ohio), Jackson Yueill (Minnesota Thunder; Bloomington, Minn.)
FORWARDS (5): Andrija Novakovich (Chicago Magic PSG; Muskego, Wis.), Rubio Rubin (Unattached; Beaverton, Ore.), Ahinga Selemani (CSA Wolves; Ann Arbor, Mich.), Alan Winn (Solar Chelsea SC; Garland, Texas), Dembakwi Yomba (Concorde Fire; Lithona, Ga.).
