U-20 World Cup: Auston Trusty added to USA squad

Philadelphia Union defender Auston Trusty is replacing Fulham defender Marlon Fossey on Coach Tab Ramos’ 2017 U-20 World Cup team, which opens the tournament against Ecuador May 22 in Incheon, South Korea. Fossey was unable to recover from a groin injury in time for the competition.

Auston Trusty

Trusty was a part of Ramos’ team that in March won the Concacaf U-20 Championship while qualifying for the World Cup. He also played in the 2015 U-17 World Cup.

A Pennsylvania product, Trusty signed an MLS Homegrown with the Philadelphia Union last year. He has yet to play an MLS game but has started six games this season at central defender for the Union’s USL affiliate Bethlehem Steel, for which he played 19 times in 2016.
