USA U17 residency squad announced
USA U17 coach Wilmer Cabrera has named a squad of 40 players to make up the Residency Program in Bradenton, Florida, for the Fall 2010 Semester.
All players who were born in 1994 or 1995 and are eligible for the 2011 FIFA U17 World Cup in Mexico are in the squad with Cabrera welcoming 21 players into the program for the first time.
"We tried to find a group of players with a chance to compete for a spot in these important tournaments," said Cabrera. "We found some under-the-radar players who bring a different type of experience to our team, including one player who was part of a professional environment at Chivas de Guadalajara, so it is a good blend. It is very important that we are all focused on training and competing at a higher level. That will help us during qualifying, which is just a few months away, and we have 40 players we think will help our team succeed."
