    Does anyone know if Shaun Tsakiris will continue to coach the U16 BNT?

    I don’t think anyone knows what’s happening at US soccer. It kind of feels like a new government is taking over and it’s trying to clean up post apocalyptic America.

    Best 23 of this age group.

    GK: Jones, Krenecki, Cordes
    DF: Cuevas, Hall, Walls, Ferkranus, Che, Ferguson, Gomez, Sorenson,
    MF: Chifamba, Leyva, Casas, Karumanchi, Nyeman, Aaronson, Garcia, Paredes
    FW: Pepi, Freeman, Sarver, Bohui

    Other players I like: Acevedo, Kaplan, Rainey, Stoup, Fragle, Monge, Huckaby, Kinzner, Carrillo, Greene, Pariano, Perez, Sealy, Miscic, Cowell

    Jones
    Cuevas-Ferkranus-Walls-Gomez
    Leyva-Chifamba
    Sarver-Nyeman-Freeman
    Pepi

    This looks like a great age group. I think this is going to be the best age group since '00, and it could rival '00.

    It has very good top end talent and a lot of depth. I think the team looks a little weak at CF, aside from Pepi. There aren't any natural #9's aside from Pepi, but I think we have a few other players who can fill in there. Some depth there could help. GK and CB are a little weak in top end talent, but both have a lot of depth. CM has good top-end talent, but I think lacks some depth.

    The roster for the Czech Republic trip should be announced in the next few days if that is still a planned trip. With the 17's and 20's in the middle of qualifying and world cup roster planning, the Coachless 16's may receive zero attention which may not be a bad thing (see 15's currently struggling in Italy)

    This was shared by Isaac Espinal on his IG story. Those U16 call-ups should be for the Czech Republic trip. We also know there will be a 60-player U14 national team camp this month.

    Nyeman must not have citizenship yet because to not call him up to the U-17 NT is malpractice when you consider the roster that was selected and that some of his own teammates who he is consistently much better than are on the team.

    I have not seen him play. Is he 100% recovered from his injury, and at the same level (or better) than he was pre-injury?

    I was thinking something similar when the hack announcer hyped up the DC Academy kids and I thought what about their best player?

    Really hope Nyeman can start to stay healthy consistently. I heard he was injured again recently, but maybe he’s back. Their last game was 2 weeks ago and he didn’t play. I’d hate for him to turn into one of those “what if” cases

    Sometimes the players are so tricky lesser players hurt them not trying to.

    Is there a reason US Soccer hasn't made an announcement yet about this? This tournament starts tomorrow.

    Not sure who is "Casar Jr" in the US line-up.
    Good luck finding game details in English language.

    Cheers.

    Possible that “Casar Jr” is really Javier Casas?

    If Nyeman is playing, does that mean he's a citizen? I know these aren't cap-tying matches, but he's still wearing the jersey in a game against another country. I vaguely remember Freddy only playing in unofficial games (against club teams, etc.) before he became a citizen, but I may be remembering that wrong.
