Over the next few weeks, US U20 head coach Thomas Rongen will be looking to finalize his roster for the International Cor Groenewegen Tournament which starts next month in Holland.

One thing that is very clear is that Rongen will be looking to use this tournament to evaluate many players who are currently based in Europe.

The two previous tournaments of this cycle, the Copa Chivas and the Dallas Cup, Rongen was forced to use primarily North American-based players but the Cor Groenewegen will now allow him to draw from his foreign based options.

The roster for the Cor Groenewegen is still far from settled and things such as injuries or club cooperation can always cause sudden changes, but Yanks Abroad can confirm that the following players have been invited by Rongen and at this time also plan to attend.

Bobby Wood (1860 Munich)
Alex Molano (NK Dinamo Zagreb)
George Pantelic (FK Rad)
Eric Benjaminsen (Stabaek II)
Sebastian Troupe (Baerum SK)

I think it's more likely that YA has some solid contacts within the US YNT setup, as well as solid relationships with the players' agents.
