0-0 we should have won 2 or 3 to zero. They created a few 1/2 chances we created 2 should have been goals and 1 clear PK not given. They certainly looked better than vs. Egypt. Moving in the right direction.

It's good they showed progress. Heard they probably should have scored a couple goals.

U23 players to keep an eye on: Saucedo and Herrera. Both are looking very good this year for RSL. Herrera especially at RB.

I know, I am the Kyle Scott fan club, but it would be nice to see how he fits in with this group.

He is out of contract so he will be leaving Chelsea. Would be a good opportunity to put him in the shop window.

It appears Ireland are considering calling him in as well, so if the US wants him, they should do something.

Know Nothing - I believe he was called up for the last U-23 camp, but had to back out due to injury. So it appears as if there is a good chance that he'd be considered. He still needs to sort out his club situation....get consistent playing time....but he has the talent.

There looks to be a handful of promising prospects who could emerge as options for the attacking CM role for the U-23's...

Scott, Mihailović, Pomykal, Aaronson, Tillman, Mendez, Ledezma

Looking towards the future there are a number of bright prospects within the US Player pool in the midfield. Just need them to continue to progress in their development in order for them to overtake the "Roll Players" ahead of them in the pecking order. If I were to guess the crop of U20 & U23 players will push the Bradley, Trapps, & Roldan's of the current team aside within 12-24 months. Our team at this summers Gold Cup will look totally different by the time the Hex rolls around.

Keep an eye on Yueill. He's adding some bite and range to his game. His vision and passing accuracy, especially med to long range is freakishly accurate. He recognizes and executes passing opportunities most guys don't see or are too slow to pull the trigger. His passing tempo is excellent.

He needs to continue his growth on the defensive side...Almeyda is starting him now and he has flourished on both sides of the ball...he is looking much better on the attacking side also. Almeyda is giving him freedom to get into the attack and he looks better every week.

Really amazing what a high end coach can do to inspire and motivate a player.

I'll add George Acosta to the mix especially if he makes the Boca first team soon.

Ok...another U-23 camp has been called. Surprising in that there is no Sargent.

U.S. Under-23 Men's National Team Roster by Position (Club; Hometown)

GOALKEEPERS (3): JT Marcinkowski (San Jose Earthquakes; Alamo, Calif.), Andrew Thomas (Stanford University; London, England), Justin Vom Steeg (LA Galaxy; Santa Barbara, Calif.)

DEFENDERS (6): Marco Farfan (Portland Timbers; Gresham, Ore.), Justen Glad (Real Salt Lake; Tucson, Ariz.), Aaron Herrera (Real Salt Lake; Las Cruces, N.M.), Jack Maher (Indiana University; Caseyville, Ill.), Sam Rogers (Seattle Sounders FC; Seattle, Wash.), Auston Trusty (Philadelphia Union; Media, Pa.)

MIDFIELDERS (8): Brenden Aaronson (Philadelphia Union; Medford, N.J.), George Acosta (Unattached; Pembroke Pines, Fla.), Mukwelle Akale (Villarreal CF B; Minneapolis, Minn.), Cameron Lindley (Memphis 901 FC; Carmel, Ind.), Sebastian Saucedo (Real Salt Lake; Park City, Utah), Eryk Williamson (Portland Timbers; Alexandria, Va.), Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes; Bloomington, Minn.), Gedion Zelalem (Sporting Kansas City; Berlin, Germany)

FORWARDS (4): Brooks Lennon (Real Salt Lake; Paradise Valley, Ariz.), Benji Michel (Orlando City SC; Orlando, Fla.), Alfonso Ocampo Chavez (Seattle Sounders FC; Kent, Wash.), Giovanni Reyna (Unattached; Bedford, N.Y.)

The press release strangely goes out of its way to praise MLS and the IMG academy.

(look, no complaining from me about a certain former Chelsea youth product not being included)

At least we have a coach in place with enough time to see different players before Olympic qualifying kicks off.

I like that Ocampo-Chavez and Reyna are with this camp.
