Beginning this week, Yanks Abroad will publish a weekly recap of American players eligible for US youth national teams. Players listed under U-23 are eligible for the 2012 Olympics, U-20s are eligible for the 2011 U-20 World Cup, and the U-18s are eligible for the 2013 U-20 World Cup.
Like always, some players will play up if they have the ability to do so; many players on the current U-20 team will be strong candidates for the U-23 Olympic team.
