    Does he still play youth ball even though he's signed with MLS and on the Galaxy?

    Besides Kirk, how many of the players on this roster weren't on the qualifying roster and has anyone from the qualifying roster been dropped for this trip?

    Eddie Ababio is nursing and injury (hip flexors). Michael Balogun was injured during the qualifying matches in Costa Rica and stayed home along with Quavas Kirk. Michael Farfan is one of the original '88s invited to the Residency program. He has nice midfield skills on the right or left side. Bobby Warshaw has been a constant standout with the Region 1 regional team and will strengthen the midfield if he continues with the team beyond this trip.

    Thanks for the info on Ababio's injury and Warshaw. Any news on Subotic? I noticed he didn't even make that last camp of 32, is he injured?

    Sorry about that hatuey, I didn't remember seeing his name in June and even rechecked the ussoccer release today and just missed him twice.
