U-20 TRAINING CAMP
Red Bulls' Adams, NYC FC's Lewis among finalists to make roster for CONCACAF Championship
Red Bulls midfielder Tyler Adams and New York City FC forward Jonathan Lewis were among 24 players called into U.S. Under-20 training camp by head coach Tab Ramos. The 11-day camp, which kicked off Tuesday, is final stage of preparation for mid-February’s 2017 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship.
That CONCACAF competition will send four teams to the 2017 FIFA U-20 Men’s World Cup in South Korea this May.
Adams hails from Wappingers Falls, N.Y., Lewis from Plantation, Fla.
“Our objective for this camp is to continue our preparation for the U-20 World Cup qualifiers,” Ramos said. “After having a fitness camp followed by a camp with a combination of fitness and local games, now we are looking to get into game rhythm and select the final roster.”
The training camp will be held through Feb. 10 in Orlando, Fla. Upon the conclusion of camp, Ramos will name the final roster of 20 players who will travel to San Jose, Costa Rica for the CONCACAF Championship. That final roster will be selected from the entire U-20 player pool.
The World Cup qualifying tournament is scheduled to run from Feb. 17-March 5, with the team’s first game taking place against Panama Feb. 18 at 4 p.m. ET.
