BRIAN SCIARETTA - Thursday, February 16, 2012
US U23 head coach Caleb Porter today announced a 23 player roster for an upcoming camp to be held in Frisco, Texas.
The roster includes many top players who have excelled in recent camps including Terrence Boyd of Borussia Dortmund, Joe Gyau of Hoffenheim, Zarek Valentin of Montreal, and Juan Agudelo of New York.
There are a few noticeable absences on the team. Speedy winger Josh Gatt was not released by his club, Molde, as the Michigan native continues to make his way back into the team after missing a significant part of preseason with an ankle injury. Also Sebastian Lletget is continuing to rehab from a concussion.
The camp will also mark the debut of Hertha Berlin defender Alfredo Morales and FC Dallas winger Brek Shea who have not spent any time with the US U-23 team due to national team commitments.
The camp will conclude with a friendly against Mexico's U23 team on February 29 at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco.
