I wonder if some of the other top players in this age bracket weren't released by their clubs. Guys like Robinson, Barbir, Olosunde, Wright, Perez, Akale. Anyone hear about clubs refusing to release guys or is this just to test out a wide assortment of players?

I think my alarms about CCV are relieved that he excepted this call up. Does not mean he will chose us 100%, but the odds of him choosing England are fading.

Lots of players have gotten their chance for Ramos so far for the u20s. We got Borges at LB, can he play the position? Is that where Suddoth plays?

Up top the players are talented, go on Sabbi and take that spot! Saucedo has impressed me every time I've seen him play.

The midfield is quite talented and should play the way that Ramos likes to play. Zelalem in particular along with de la Torre and McKinnie should enjoy these games. The talent over the previous cycle to me is evident considering the players who aren't available.

Pulisic isn't a u-20 player. He is a USMNT player.

I was being sarcastic lol. But wouldn't it be cool to have him in next year's WC maybe we will have a good chance

Akale was not granted his release. None of the others have been made public. You would have to think Olosunde was asked as its in his backyard. MU must have said no there.

Following on the backyard theme...Kyle Scott. Has he decided against playing for the US? Was he invited?

There are at least 4 Chelsea players in the England team, so I doubt releasing him was an issue.

Tab Ramos has said performances in this particular event will weigh heavily because of the quality of opposition. So should anyone have a good week, might as well put them in pencil for the u20 WC- if we qualify that is.

Just saw it on twitter.

And this:

U.S. Soccer YNT ‏@ussoccer_ynt 59m59 minutes ago

FT: The U20 #USMNT matched up well against a strong Germany side, but fell 1-0 after an early PK. Next up, the U20 MNT faces NED on Oct. 7

Read on twitter that the PK was because US was lazy passing it around in the back and turned it over than Klinsman committed a foul in the box. One interesting takeaway is that the last time this age group (ie '97's) played this age group of Germany they lost 8-1. In just a couple of years they went from not even belonging on the pitch to losing by a pk. Thats some good progress (it helps that the last time was almost solely development league guys why this time they called in guys in pro programs but its still progress)
