The Kids Are Alright

This morning, Thomas Rongen named the US squad for the upcoming U20 World Cup in Canada. The Gnats kick off the tournament in Montreal on June 30th vs. South Korea. The roster includes some big names, and a few with NY-area roots:

-Freddy Adu

-Jozy Altidore (Newark's finest)

-Michael Bradley, who'll have quite a "how I spent my Summer vacation" story when he gets back to Heerenveen

-Gabriel Ferrari (NYC)

-Dax McCarty (FCD, who didn't take part in U20 qualifying)

-Johann Smith (Bloomfield, CT)

-Danny Szetela (Clifton, NJ)

-Tim Ward (former Metro)

Best of luck to the boys, who play Chile's U20 side next Saturday at Giants Stadium before the US Women face Brazil.
