PORTER ADDS FOUR TO U-23'S
EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, November 4, 2011
US U-23 head coach Caleb Porter today announced that four players have been added to the upcoming camp in Duisburg, Germany.

New York Red Bulls forward Juan Agudelo along with the Philadelphia Union trio of Amobi Okugo, Jack McInerney, and Sheanon Williams will all be joining the US U-23 team after their respective clubs were eliminated from the MLS playoffs Thursday night.

Agudelo has been a regular with the US national team but he struggled for playing time the past month with the Red Bulls.

Okugo, McInerney, and Williams have all spent time in the past with US youth national teams. Williams was part of the 2009 US U-20 World Cup team and McInerney was on the 2009 U-17 World Cup team. Okugo was a key part of the 2011 US U-20 team that failed to qualify for the World Cup.

The US U-23 camp will begin on November 7 and will run through November 16.

Another genius (sarcasm)made a big mistake which hopefully won't be a Subotic type mistake . Fabian Huertzler was not called in, but Jack McInerny was. I read today that Huertzler was called into U 19 Germany camp yesterday. Who ,in their right mind ,would believe McInerny who regressed scoring one goal all season for the Philadelphia Union is a better prospect than Huertzler. He was captain of the German U18 team and now will be on Germany's U19 team?

good to see young union players get national team looks. union have a solid young squad with a bunch of guys who could play a big role for the nats.

Yeah, now we're getting somewhere. The sooner we can add in the MLS talent, the better. I'm definitely looking at some fierce competition for Striker and playmaker (Lletget, Diskerud, presumably Gil and Adu).

The problem with US Soccer clearly isn't talent, but the age gap between our established players and our olympic hopefuls.
