EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, January 2, 2012
US U-20 head coach Tab Ramos today announced a 36 player roster for a U20 camp that will take place from January 2 through January 9 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

The roster features 14 players that currently play in professional environments. Six players are currently based in Mexico, four are in MLS, three play in Germany, and one in Norway.

Also on the roster are nine current Developmental Academy players and 15 NCAA players.

The most noteworthy names on the roster are MLS standout Luis Gil, Liverpool signee Villyan Bijev who is on loan to Fortuna Dusseldorf, and left back Sean Cunningham who plays for the defending Norwegian champions and who could see time in the Champions league in 2012.

Given that this is not an international window, some of the top US U20 players are not in attendance. The biggest omissions are the Hertha Berlin duo of Jerome Kiesewetter and John Anthony Brooks, West Ham United left back Danny Potts, injured goalkeeper Cody Cropper, and Liverpool reserve standout Marc Pelosi.
