    Hi all,

    As I've received some new information, here's the latest YYA thread with the usual caveats added to the end. New information or corrections welcome of course.

    Players were only listed if I was reasonably sure they were overseas and could confirm a birthdate after 1981.

    Casey Conor 1981 Karlsruher SC Germany
    Espinosa Carlo 1981 FC Rastatt 04 Germany
    Hangeland Brede 1981 Viking FK Norway
    Jones Jermaine 1981 Eintracht Frankfurt Germany
    Rachubka Paul 1981 Charlton Athletic England
    Yelldell David 1981 Blackburn Rovers England
    Collins Duane-Carl 1982 FC Augsburg Germany
    Kazlauskas Charles 1982 NEC Nijmegen Holland
    Myhill Boaz 1982 Macclesfield Town England
    Oneywu Oguchi 1982 La Louviere Belgium
    Yi Alex 1982 Royal Antwerp Belgium
    Chicco Niccola 1983 U.S. Triestina Italy
    Colon Dimitris 1983 SGV Freiburg Germany
    Kayser Jacob 1983 FSV Optik Rathenow Germany
    Palomares Raul 1983 NK Zepce Bosnia
    Simis Bryan 1983 Bamberg Germany
    Simmons Kevin 1983 FC Eddersheim Germany
    Stewart Tim 1983 FC Den Bosch Holland
    Vasquez Schank Sergio Shane 1983 CD Las Rozas Spain
    Cooper Kenny 1984 Manchester United England
    Cuomo Gabriel 1984 SV Wehen Germany
    Johnson David 1984 Willem II Holland
    Johnson Jemal 1984 Blackburn England
    Karbasiyoon Danny 1984 Arsenal England
    Kim Chuck 1984 Alemania Aachen Germany
    Sam Lloyd 1984 Charlton Athletic England
    Simek Frank 1984 Arsenal England
    Whitbread Zak 1984 Liverpool England
    Bryant Cooper 1985 Mainz-Gonsenheim Germany
    Archer Zach 1986 Corinthians Brazil
    Denny Jay 1986 Stoke City England
    Parratt Tom 1986 Birmingham City England
    Signoriello Vincenzo 1986 Calcio Napoli Italy
    Spector Jonathan 1986 Manchester United England
    Westberg Quentin 1986 Troyes France
    Johnson Will 1987 Blackburn Rovers England
    Mascarenhas Brian 1987 Tottenham England
    Rossi Giuseppe 1987 AC Parma Italy
    Appel-Schumacher Thomas 1988 1 FC Saarbrucken Germany
    Stephenson Niklas 1988 FC Kickers Wuerzberg Germany
    Jonsson Nils 1989 JFG Wuerzburg Germany

    Now for the caveats:
    Hangeland plays for Norway.
    Rachubka for England.
    Chicco's citizenship is unclear.
    Sam's citzenship is unclear.
    Johnson is not yet a citizen.
    Rossi looks slated to play for Italy.

    If anyone listed seems young to you, I decided to add them because they are nevertheless regional-level ODP pool players.

    What about those two kids on the Michael Banner post, Banner and the goalkeeper for Universidad de Chile, any confirms on that? And where did this Vincenzo Signoriello kid come from to play at a Serie B club?

    Banner in Brazil I forgot to add. I guess he would probably be about an 83 but I'm not sure of that.

    Signoriello I believe played ODP in California.

    No confirmation of the young fellow in Chile.

    This is odd but ...

    I bought a computer from a kid who swears that his older brother just joined Fiorentina (presumably in youth/reserves). The older brother's name is Michael Litvack from Glenview, IL.

    Went on the Web to check this story out. Cheapskate Fiorentina hasn't updated its Web site in a year. The local newspaper has an article that begins enticingly about how a local youth named Michael Litvack went to pursue his dreams in Italy and ... that's all I can get, no access to the archives.

    The guy played a bit in college, so figure him at 20 years old or so.

    I've been trying to get confirmation on Litvack for a while now. Fiorentina certainly seems to make more sense than "Senora" which has represented mostly a dead end, though the writer of an article insists upon it.

    Maybe the writer of the story is just not that familiar with the game, but the whole thing seems kind of odd, like somebody is about to really be disappointed or something. More power and best wishes to the young man, but it just doesn't add up.

    Thanks as always for a great list Dave.

    I might add, for those who are curious, that both Robbie Rogers and Kevin Vandenberg are looking at return visits sometime after the New Year, with the clubs they recently had trials with (Bayern Munich and Brondby, respectively). In both cases, other clubs are also showing an interest. Both players are now high school seniors, and Rogers opted not to return to Bradenton residency this year.

    Rogers is the guy playing in California with Klinsman, right?

    1. I'm a big Parma fan, so was wondering: who is this Rossi kid, where's he from, and on what do you base he will play for Italy?

    2. Hasn't Jermaine Jones already played for Germany at a youth level, or at least made it clear that he wants to play for Germany?

    IIRC, Jemal Johnson was supposed to be a decent prospect. Any word on his openness to the USA side. Lloyd Sam, IIRC, said he has no interest in playing for the US.

    I'm assuming Klinsmann was instrumental in getting Rogers his trial with Bayern Munich, right?

    Who are the best Nats prospects on this list? And are there any wildcards we really don't know much about but could be sleepers?

    1. Rossi was part of the ODP Europe program -- not sure if he ever lived in the US. His dad, a prominent youth coach in the US, recently moved from NJ to Italy to be with him. He's with a Parma youth squad and according to another poster was on a recent Italian U-17 roster.

    2. Yep, my mistake.

    Charlton's Offical website profile of Sam Lloyd says he was Leeds born and has already played for England's u-18's, Why is he on this list? Where and when did he become American?

    Sam Lloyd -

    When, and for that matter, how, did Jermaine Johnson play for Germany?

    I know he was born in New Jersey and grew up in England. How did he end up playing for the Germans?

    Also, one of Lloyd Sam's parents is American. His brother, Andrew, plays at Cal State Fullerton and the info about their folks is on Andrew's bio at the Fullerton team's website.

    Sorry, Jermaine Jones for Germany. Jemal Johnson from New Jersey.

    Re: Re: Re: Youth Yanks Abroad -- Latest

    Rossi actually never played in ODP Europe, and Parma's website has a news story where Rossi and a couple others are on Italy's youth squad.

    Really? He was part of an old Region 1 pool -- that's how I heard about him.
