    I do not know the reason, but they have confirmed that Benji Michel will not attend the convocation of Haiti

    Folarin Balogun says he hasn't chosen his international destination:

    “I haven’t yet declared who I will commit to internationally,” Balogun began. “I was born in New York, so can play for the USA. My parents were born in Nigeria and I have been in England since I was two years old, so I can play for both those countries too!

    “I have several youth caps playing for England and I enjoy their style of play which is similar to Arsenal’s. I will be discussing matters with my parents and will then decide.”

    For his statements seems to be quite determined to play for England, although we will have to wait. Maybe at some point I'll stop being on the radar of England and decide to choose the United States as an alternative option.

    No surprise, but '03 Bryan Okoh is back with Switzerland U16s.

    '01 NY-born defender Oisin McEntee gets what I believe is his first callup to Ireland U19. He's been previously with U18 and U17. Already was provisionally cap-tied with the U17s, so this won't change his international status.

    There are very few good players of any nationality in those years in Atlanta's academy.

    Even if true, that doesn't mean there aren't good players in Atlanta.

    There are two other DA teams from Atlanta in playoff position. UFA is leading the SE division, and after a slow start, Concorde is up to a wildcard spot and one of the hottest teams in the DA.

    Moreover, the metro Atlanta area is home to many families with dual citizenship soccer players and is a great place for other countries to mine talent. I personally know of two kids born in '02 who could possibly play at the U17 Concacaf tournament for T&T. Additionally, there are Haiti, Puerto Rico, Honduras, and Jamaica eligible players on the DA clubs and at KSA and GSA who at least deserve a look in metro Atlanta.

    I find it funny that people push this idea that "if you don't play in an MLS Academy, you must not be talented or good." This belief is part of what is holding the U. S. back in terms of development. There are many reasons that talented players don't play at MLS Academies, with academics being one and "late bloomer" being another.

    Here is a series of tweets regarding young players who are playing for other YNTs or not yet playing for the U.S. for various reasons. ChuckMe92Soccer is doing a terrific job in compiling all sorts of lists of youth players.

    Some goalkeepers that I can think of for that team could be Holguin or Palomares both with Mexico

    Here's one possibly worthy keeper I've found. Portugal U17 keeper Sergio Dutra Alves of Vitoria SC. His Instagram bio says he's Portuguese-American. Here he is holding the trophy after the Portugal U17s won the 2018 Nike International Friendlies in Florida.

    Appears to have been born in Portugal, so if this is correct then presumably it's through parentage...

    Alvarez and Munoz make the final Mexico U17 camp ahead of World Cup qualifying. Letayf is there too though he's not eligible for the US. No Pepi or Arce.

    Yeah, it sure appears that Pepi is now firmly in the U17 plans. After that, we'll see where it goes.

    Letayf isn't eligible for the US, but its still a bummer to see him get away. There's a lot of potential there. If he makes their U17 CONCACAF roster, then he'll never be eligible for us.

    Mexico U15 roster is out for a couple of international tournaments. Includes Alex Alcala of Stockton Rebels, Miguel Avalos of Pachuca, and Jarred Torres Rayon of NYCFC. Torres Rayon has been with the US U15s but wasn't getting opportunities stuck behind Gabriel Slonina. Missing from the roster are Donovan Palomares and Abel Salazar.

    He's the keeper who was listed as 6'3 204 on the US U-15 roster in the summer. I've never seen him play, so he might be a great player and I wouldn't know, but you have to wonder how athletic a 14 year old at that height/weight can be.

    I recently saw that Wilfredo Rivera '03 is with Puerto Rico U17 in the for qualification. He was with the U16 team some time ago.

    Joins Vicente Reyes and Andrew Araya as US-born-and-raised DA players in the Chile youth setup. To be clear, this does not mean they are good enough for USYNTs.
