The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team is not waiting until February to familiarize itself with Puebla, Mexico.
The U.S. will hold a week-long training camp from Jan. 14-22 in the Mexican city where the 2013 CONCACAF U-20 Championionship will be held, U.S. Soccer announced on Wednesday. As part of the camp, the Americans will face Panama on Jan. 19 and 21, though location for those matches have not yet been determined.
Head coach Tab Ramos will name a roster at a later date but it seems likely that many of players summoned into this preparatory camp will be on the roster for next month’s tournament. The CONCACAF U-20 Championship is set to run from Feb. 18 through March 3 and the four semifinalists will advance to this summer’s World Cup.
Think it is a wise move for the U.S. U-20s to train in Mexico later this month? Expecting most of the players called in to this camp to be on the roster for next month’s tournament? Which players do you want to see called in?
