Juan Agudelo, Omar Salgado, Perry Kitchen and Joe Gyau were among the players called in by U.S. Under-20 head coach Thomas Rongen for the team's training camp in January in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
The Under-20 team will be in camp from Jan. 2nd to Jan. 13th in Fort Lauderdale as Rongen looks to finalize his squad ahead of Under-20 World Cup qualifying.
Agudelo will be with the team until Jan. 6th, after which he will join the U.S. senior national team in Carson, California.
This U-20 camp will feature the debut of Bayern Munich midfielder Fabian Huerzeler, a German youth national team player who is considering making the change to play for the United States (though he has yet to formally apply for a national team affiliation switch).
