FRISCO, TEXAS (Thursday, Feb. 9) – FC Dallas midfielder Coy Craft has been named
to the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team roster for the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship, which doubles as the team’s 2017 World Cup qualifying tournament, running Feb. 17-March 5 in Costa Rica.
The USA has been drawn into Group B along with Panama, Haiti and Saint Kitts and Nevis. The U.S. opens against Panama at 4 p.m. ET on Feb. 18, followed by Haiti at 5:30 p.m. ET on Feb. 21 and Saint Kitts and Nevis at 5:30 p.m. ET on Feb. 24. All three of the USA’s matches will be broadcast in the United States on Univision networks. Fans can also follow the action on twitter at @ussoccer_ynt.
“This process is always difficult,” U.S. U-20 head coach Tab Ramos said. “Inevitably, you always end up leaving a couple guys out who deserve to be on the roster. When selecting a roster for a tournament like this, where you are trying to qualify to the world cup, you are putting together a best 11 and then players who can play multiple positions. So that’s what we’ve done. We are happy with the team and we are looking forward to qualifying.”
