US U-20 National Team coach Thomas Rongen announced his squad ahead of the upcoming U-20 World Cup in Egypt. Here is the squad.

GOALKEEPERS (3): Sean Johnson (Central Florida; Lilburn , Ga. ), Josh Lambo (FC Dallas; Middleton , Wis. ), Brian Perk (UCLA; Rancho Santa Margarita , Calif. )

DEFENDERS (6): Gale Agbossoumonde ( Miami FC; Syracuse , N.Y. ), Kyle Davies (FC Dallas; Danville , Calif. ), Aaron Maund (Notre Dame; Dorchester , Mass. ), Ike Opara ( Wake Forest ; Durham , N.C. ), Anthony Wallace (FC Dallas; St. Petersburg , Fla. ), Sheanon Williams (Unattached; Boston , Mass. )

MIDFIELDERS (8): Danny Cruz ( Houston Dynamo; Glendale , Ariz. ), Mikkel Diskerud (Stabak; Oslo , Norway ), Dilly Duka (Rutgers; Montville , N.J. ), Jorge Flores (Chivas USA ; Anaheim , Calif. ), Jared Jeffrey (Club Brugge; Richardson , Texas ), Brian Ownby (Virginia; Glen Allen, Va. ), Dillon Powers (Notre Dame; Plano , Texas ), Michael Stephens (UCLA; Naperville , Ill. )

FORWARDS (4): Sam Garza ( Denver ; Highland Village , Texas ), Peri Marosevic (FC Dallas; Rockford , Ill. ), Brek Shea (FC Dallas; College Station , Texas ), Tony Taylor ( Jacksonville ; Jacksonville , Fla. )

I am currently working on the USL story and a wrap up of last night’s Man City-Crystal Palace game in England, so my analysis of this squad will come later in the day.

The squad features a total of ten professional players: two based in Europe, seven based in MLS and one based in USL-1. Five of the ten professional players feature for FC Dallas, while Houston, Chivas USA and Miami FC are all featured with one selection each.

Feel free to leave your thoughts.
