You lose a ton of credibility thinking Gil shouldn't start for this team.


Well I came back to edit because I saw your starting XI on the other thread.... Im still going with my all-star selection

What do you feel would be the best starting XI for the U-20 team ?


I posted it in another thread.

As for starting lineup, I have this in a 4-3-3. And yes, I have Morris starting because he fits the system so well with speed and strength. The speed and endurance is crucial in Ramos' 4-3-3.

---------Cropper----
-Yedlin--O'Neill--Brooks--Ocegueda
---------Stanko------
-------Gil------Joya--
--Morris-------------Cuevas--
---------Villarreal------

Why? Here are the reasons.

1) Speed from wingers and fullbacks (Cuevas, Ocegueda, Yedlin & Morris). I open to replacing Morris with another pure winger but he fits what Ramos wants.
2) Good possession and creativity from midfielders in Joya and Gil.
3) Central defenders who can pass in Brooks and O'Neill. I have no problem if Zimmerman starts as long as he's healthy (but I'm not sure where he is in his recovery). He brings a needed physical edge that the team could use.
4) A forward who can pass and combine well with other attackers.

Brooks is not on the U-20 Toulon Roster. Could mean he hasn't really decided yet.

Here is the roster:

GK: Cropper, Mcintosch

Defense: Miller, Ocegueda, Torre, Payeres, O'Neill, Sorto, Stanko

Middies: Serna, Martin, Acosta, Hairston, Joya, Lopez, Trapp

Attackers: Cuevas, Garcia, Alonso Hernandez, Koroma, Pineda, Morris

MLS players: Gil, Villarreal, and Yedlin left off as well. O'Neill was red carded in his last game so he will be available.

Excited to Hernandez and Morris called in. Interesting Ramos left off Mario Rodriguez.

Brooks i s not on the U-20 Toulon Roster. Which means he still has not decided.


Thats some disheartening news. Everything has been pointing to this being the event. Maybe Germany reached out to him again

Hernandez is a huge get. He has some serious star potential. Could be in Spain or Portugal by 2015

I was right. Ramos is using the Toulan Tournament has an extended training camp for the World Cup. He called in guys to get extended looks at and he is allowing the MLS locks and other guys who seasons aren't over to continue to train and get first team minutes

Sucks to hear the latest news about JAB not meeting the deadline with a decision to play in the U20 WC

Hopefully he is eyeing the senior squad for the USMNT because he is not on the U-21 roster for Germany either. Could also be like chandler where he wants to rest and is not thinking about committing to a team at this point in time.

Nice to see alonso hernandez called in

Also glad to hear that Tab Ramos will have a 35 player preliminary WC roster

Julian Green
Fabian Hurzeler
Duane Holmes
and of course Bryan Salazar

According to Soccer by Ives, JAB won't play for the US in the U21 World Cup...

I think it is absolutely imperative that JK calls him up for the Gold Cup now.

I just cant believe how stacked germany is

Shawn Parker and John Brooks who would be starters on the US senior team weren't even called in for the germany U-21 team...... ridiculous

Where's this preliminary roster? Does it have those four names you mentioned above?

I would rather see JAB on the Gold Cup roster. Hopefully, JK invites him and the prospect of playing for the senior national team motivates JAB to accept the call up.

Not really expecting JAB to accept any cap tying tournament for either Germany or USA just yet. I wouldn't expect JAB to be on the Gold Cup team.

It's U-20. Just wanted to point that out. Only Europe does the U-21 thing.

I dont know and would love to find out. Most likely will be release a few weeks before the U-20 WC tournament.

Im pretty sure it is set now because the players had to fill out paperwork and thats why JAB missed the deadline.
