San Jose Earthquakes Academy product and Burlingame Dragons FC goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski has been named to Tab Ramos’ 24-man roster for the USMNT U-20’s 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship in mid-February. The tournament will ultimately send four teams to the 2017 FIFA U-20 Men’s World Cup in South Korea in May.
Marcinkowski was recently with the U-20’s for January Camp from Jan. 15-23 in Carson Calif. Prior to his last call-up, the South Bay native was one of three goalkeepers that traveled to Costa Rica for training camp and a pair of friendlies against the host nation this past December.
“Our objective for this camp is to continue our preparation for the U-20 World Cup qualifiers,” Ramos said. “After having a fitness camp followed by a camp with a combination of fitness and local games, now we are looking to get into game rhythm and select the final roster.”
The 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship will be held at the Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica in San Jose and the Estadio Ricardo Saprissa in Tibas from Feb. 17 – March 5.
