Surprised not to see Akale nor De La Torre. Maybe clubs wouldn't release them.

Full squad:

GK: Marcinkowski, Klinsmann

Defenders: Robinson, Pines, Robinson, Araujo, CCV, Pos, Maher, Farfan

Mid: Yueill, Parks, Williamson, Jones, Lindsey, Mihailovic

FWDS: Weah, Sargent, Ebobisse, Perez, Wright, Sabbi

Also no EPB? WTF? I thought his club announced he was called up for this camp?

Why oh why do we have so many guys that should be with the senior team at the Who Give's a Crap Camp?

Anybody read anything about whether we will have TV or an online stream option for the games against Egypt and the Netherlands?

There are a number of names I'm a bit surprised aren't on this roster....
EPB, Moore, Cannon, Scott, Lankford, De La Torre,

But, like others have commented, maybe their clubs weren't willing to release them.

Depending upon how GB rolls out his squad of players....I could easily see the U-23's playing the Sr side to a draw if not an outright win. The only edge I'd give the Sr. Side is that they have more experience playing with one another than the U-23's do. If we included the U-23 eligible guys from the Sr. side (McKennie, Adams, Pulisic) they would crush GB's March camp.

Guess that's why I'm so disappointed in the roster selections GB made. We have some very good talented U-23 players who could be contributing to the SR side instead of the re-treads that were called in.

Dave, Scott is injured and Moore is a '96, so he won't be age-eligible for the Olympics. I've liked what I've seen from De La Torre, not clear what is going on with him, I don't think he's even been playing for Fulham U-23 recently.

So lets take all of the U23 eligible players (lots of which are bench warmers - Weah, Wright, Sargent, De La Torre, etc.) and totally neglect trying to qualify for the Olympics.

Lets take them out of a situation where they have the opportunity to play with one another and just thrown them all together at the last moment before the Olympic qualifying tournament and expect that we will be successful...

Great idea... we did that the last 2 cycles and look how that turned out. Then, in 12 months time, the conversation on this site will be "What are we doing?! We didn't qualify?! This is an embarrassment!" Exactly like last time around...

Outside of Pulisic, McKennie, and Adams, none of these guys are realistically going to be starters or impact players for us in the next 12 months. It makes sense from a coaching perspective to get them together in their own age group, see who emerges, and give them a chance at success in the Olympics. That is a tournament that gives valuable experience in a WC-like format and situation that will prepare them for 2022 when they are hopefully in the team creating an impact.

Look at the bigger picture.

Stop making sense, this a forum for sensationalist claims!

Yeah, just saw a tweet that suggests Scott would have been called had he not been injured.

I suppose DeLaTorre may have an injury as well as he has a senior callup to his name and did not look out of place.

Sargent is already better than any of the forwards Berhalter just called in. It makes zero sense to put him with the U23's. I think the same thing can be said for Weah.

Several others need a look over some of the guys on this roster.

I don't know of any federation that places particular emphasis on the Olympics.

Based on what evidence? Sargent is a talented young FWD. but I haven't seen evidence he is better right now.

I am huge Sargent fan as well as a huge Weah fan. But they are young and still learning. Give them time.

Some of the same people in hear said led that about Mario Rodriguez, Rubio Rubin, Jack Mcinerney, etc.... down the line of young FWDS who have gone to Europe. I think hype train needs to settle down on these guys.

Thats completely personal opinion that Sargent is better than any of the forwards called up.

Sargent doesn't play. He has gotten some minutes here and there, but for the most part he sits the bench. No preference should be placed on him at the senior level until he can crack into the first team at Bremen.

That is not only my opinion, but that has been stated by Berhalter. Playing time and form at the club level matters. If you aren't playing... you aren't getting called in.

I agree with 2tone on this... the hype train needs to slow down. I mean, it isn't like we've ever had majorly hyped young players who haven't panned out as thought (Adu, Green, Zelalem, Agbossumonde, Shea, Packwood, Pelosi, Tall, Kiesewetter, Boyd, Gyau, Gatt, Joya, etc.)...

It wasn't long ago that everyone was claiming for Siebatcheau to get called in. What happened to that?

Siebatcheu cant crack the 18 for Rennes. That's what happened. Add to the fact he always turned down callups from Sarachan.

People love to forget about the players who have failed and we're considered better than what was being called up even though none of them were consistent first team players. There is a long history of talented American youth failing in not only European teams but in MLS as a well.
