Possible Roster

This is the roster that traveled to England this past month for a “training camp” in which the team played multiple friendlies, including a 3-1 win over Chelsea.

Some notable absences are Joseph Gyau (recently signed with Hoffenheim), Charles Renken (injured, recently signed with Hoffenheim), and Sebastian Lletget (West Ham). The common theory is that these 3 will not play in the U-17 WC, though it wouldn’t be terribly shocking if Gyau and Lletget were indeed called in. Possible, but not likely right now.

Here are the highlights from the win over Chelsea (Craven, Jerome, and Chavez scored, despite the announcers commentary).

The players to watch are Luis Gil (Arsenal), Jack McInerny, Billy Packwood (Birmingham City), Stefan Jerome, Victor Chavez, Andrew Craven, and Alfred Koroma.

Koroma is the only player who is also eligible for the 2011 U-17 World Cup, meaning he will likely not travel to Nigeria at the end of the month (youth players can only participate in 1 U-17 WC).

GOALKEEPERS (2): Earl Edwards (Nomads SC; San Diego), Spencer Richey (Crossfire Premier; Seattle)

DEFENDERS (7): Zachary Herold (West Pines United FC, Port St. Lucie, Fla.), Perry Kitchen (Chicago Magic; Indianapolis), Jordan McCrary (Concorde Fire; Marietta, Ga.), Boyd Okwuonu (Celtic Green; Edmond, Okla.), Tyler Polak (CSA Legacy; Lincoln, Neb.), Jared Watts (North Meck SC; Statesville, N.C.), Eriq Zavaleta (FC Pride; Westfield, Ind.)

MIDFIELDERS (6): Marlon Duran (Latino Americana; Duncanville, Texas), Luis Gil (Pateadores; Garden Grove, Calif.), Carlos Martinez (Wilmington Jr.; San Pedro, Calif), William Packwood (Birmingham City; Concord, Mass.), Nick Palodichuk (Washington Premier FC; Battleground, Wash.), Alex Shinsky (Super Nova FC; York, Pa.)

FORWARDS (7): Juan Agudelo (NY Red Bulls Academy; Barnegat, N.J.), Victor Chavez (Real So Cal; Fontana, Calif), Andrew Craven (First Coast Kickers; St. Simons Island, Ga.), Stefan Jerome (West Pines United FC; Davie, Fla.), Alfred Koroma (Solar SC; Arlington, Texas), Jack McInerney (Cobb SC; Alpharetta, Ga.), Dominick Sarle (BW Gottschee; Huntington, N.Y.)
