US Under-20 roster named

In preparation for the their qualifiers for the 2007 CONCACAF Under-20 World Cup, the US U-20 squad will play Guatemala in a friendly on November 15th. Mager Thomas Rongen has called 19 players into a four-day training camp ahead of this match.

Here is the list:

GOALKEEPERS: Zac MacMath (St. Petersburg, Fla.), Nicholas Skverer (NEC Nijmegen)

DEFENDERS: Kris Banghart (N.C. Wesleyan College), Kyle Davies (Pleasanton, Calif.), Quavas Kirk (L.A. Galaxy), Nathan Sturgis (L.A. Galaxy), Neven Subotic (Mainz 05), Anthony Wallace (USF), Tim Ward (Columbus Crew)

MIDFIELDERS: Freddy Adu (D.C. United), Bryan Arguez (Miami, Fla.), Miguel Gonzalez (New England Revolution), Dax McCarty (FC Dallas), Nico Mosquera (University of Central Florida), Danny Szetela (Columbus Crew)

FORWARDS: Josmer Altidore (N.Y. Red Bulls), David Arvizu (N.Y. Red Bulls), Ellis McLoughlin (Seattle, Wash.), Johann Smith (Bolton FC)

Freddy Adu and Josmer Altidore will get much of the attention on this one, but I'm interested to see what Quavas Kirk and Zac MacMath can do. Kirk has been an interesting player to watch with LA this year and has the physical ability to become something great for the national team while MacMath had a fantastic time with the U-17 squad.

The training camp will take place in Sunrise, Florida.
