U-19 MNT head coach Dave Van Den Bergh called in 19 players for the tournament. As U.S. Youth Technical Director and U-20 MNT head coach Tab Ramos builds out the USA’s 2018 Concacaf U-20 Championship roster, the 2018 U-20 Men’s Invitational will provide U-19 MNT players with the opportunity to prove they deserve consideration for the USA’s 2019 World Cup qualifying roster, which will be determined over the next two months.

The U.S. U-20s are in the middle of the 2019 World Cup cycle with the Concacaf U-20 Men’s Championship on the horizon. The tournament, which will qualify four teams for the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland, will take place at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. from Nov. 1-21. The draw for the tournament is set to be held on Sept. 13.
