Herzog Names 24-Player Roster for Final Camp Ahead of Olympic Qualifying

CHICAGO (Aug. 28, 2015) – U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team head coach Andi Herzog has called 24 players to England for a final preparation camp before the 2015 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament in October.

The camp will run in Manchester, England, from Aug. 30-Sept. 8 and will feature friendlies against England on Sept. 3 at Deepdale Stadium in Preston, and Qatar on Sept. 8 at Gigg Lane in Bury. Fans can follow the action live via Twitter through @ussoccer.

"These are two important games here because they are our last before the Olympic Qualifying tournament,” Herzog said. “We have a strong group of players that we believe in, and now we are able to look as some of the guys who did very well with our U-20 team. This is really the last chance for all of the players to make an impression before we select the final roster for qualifying.”

The U-23’s were last in Europe in June, where they competed in the prestigious Toulon Tournament. With group stage wins against Netherlands and Qatar, the team advanced to the tournament’s third-place playoff, where it defeated England and matched its best ever finish in the tournament. The U-23’s are 5-3-0 in 2015, having also logged wins against Bosnia in March and Mexico in April.

The 2015 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Championship will be played across the United States from Oct. 1-13. The U.S. was drawn into Group A and opens with a pair of games at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kansas, against Canada on Oct. 1 at 8 p.m. CT and Cuba on Oct. 3 at 4 p.m. CT. The U.S. will conclude group play at ****’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado on Oct. 6 against Panama at 7:30 p.m. MT. [TICKETS]

GOALKEEPERS (3): Cody Cropper (MK Dons; Maple Grove, Minn.), Ethan Horvath (Molde; Highlands Ranch, Colo.), Zack Steffen (Freiburg; Downington, Pa.).
DEFENDERS (glasses.gif: Cameron Carter-Vickers (Tottenham Hotspur; Westcliff on Sea, England), Matt Miazga (New York Red Bulls; Clifton, N.J.), Eric Miller (Montreal Impact; Woodbury, Minn.), Boyd Okwuonu (Real Salt Lake; Edmund, Okla.), Shane O’Neill (Apollon Limassol; Boulder, Colo.), William Packwood (Unattached; Concord, Mass.), Dillon Serna (Colorado Rapids; Brighton, Colo.), Oscar Sorto (LA Galaxy; Los Angeles, Calif).
MIDFIELDERS (glasses.gif: Gboly Ariyibi (Chesterfield; Arlington County, Va.), Luis Gil (Real Salt Lake; Garden Grove, Calif.), Emerson Hyndman (Fulham; Dallas, Tex.), Benji Joya (Club Necaxa; San Jose, Calif.), Marc Pelosi (San Jose Earthquakes; Sunnyvale, Calif.), Matt Polster (Chicago Fire; Milwaukee, Wisc.), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew; Gahanna, Ohio), Gedion Zelalem (Rangers; Bethesda, Md.).

Roster Notes:

Seven players from the USA’s 2015 U-20 World Cup team that advanced to the quarterfinals in New Zealand now join the U-23 group: Cameron Carter-Vickers, Emerson Hyndman, Matt Miazga, Rubio Rubin, Zack Steffen, Maki Tall and Gedion Zelalem.
Five players from this roster have scored goals for the U-23’s in 2015: Alonso Hernandez, Benji Joya, Jerome Kiesewetter, William Packwood and Mario Rodriguez.
Three from this roster scored goals with the U-20’s in 2015: Hyndman, Rubin and Tall.
Shane O’Neill was a force for the squad on the backline in the Toulon Tournament, and earned honors as the Third-Best player in the tournament.
Hernandez and Joya both scored penalties in the third-place playoff of the Toulon Tournament. Hernandez’s strike was the first score of the game and Joya’s proved to be the game-winner.
Rodriguez returns to the mix after missing the Toulon Tournament. The strong striker plays at Borussia Mönchengladbach, the same club as Men’s National Team defender Fabian Johnson. The North Hollywood-native has scored twice in as many games in 2015.
Luis Gil also returns to the U-23’s after missing the Toulon Tournament. Gil wore the captain’s armband in each of the first three games of 2015, where he leads the team with four assists.
Goalkeeper Cody Cropper (MK Dons), defender Carter-Vickers (Tottenham Hotspur) and midfielder Hyndman (Fulham) won’t have far to travel for this camp, coming over from their nearby English club teams.
Eighteen-year-old Gedion Zelalem, who recently completed a loan move from Arsenal to Rangers, made his U.S. debut for the U-20’s in this summer’s World Cup.
The roster is a diverse mix with the players coming from club teams of various leagues around the world. Nine players from this roster represent MLS clubs, three come from German club teams, four from English teams, two from Mexico, and a single player each from leagues in Cyprus, Netherlands, Norway, Scotland, and Switzerland.
Twelve players from this roster have ties to the Development Academy: Ethan Horvath (Real Colorado), Emerson Hyndman (FC Dallas), Benji Joya (De Anza Force), Matt Miazga (New York Red Bulls), Eric Miller (Minnesota Thunder Academy), Boyd Okwuonu (FC Dallas), Shane O’Neill (Colorado Rapids), Marc Pelosi (De Anza Force), Dillon Serna (Colorado Rapids), Oscar Sorto (LA Galaxy & Pateadores), Zack Steffen (Continental FC DELCO), Wil Trapp (Crew SC Academy).

10 Bundesliga wonderkids looking to make a breakthrough in 2015/16

comments
Jon Harding profiles the brightest talents coming through the ranks across Germany...
Bayern Munich may have begun the new Bundesliga season as favourites, but the conveyer belt of young talent in Germany provides an exciting sub-plot to the campaign. Perhaps inspired by the World Cup-winning exploits of the older generation, youngsters across the country will be looking to cement a place in their side and could even be dreaming of Euro 2016.

1. Max Eggestein (Werder Bremen)
Eighteen-year-old Max Eggestein is one of the most quickly developing talents at Werder Bremen. A commanding attacking midfielder who has good passing and vision has stepped up through the club's ranks and is now a firm fixture in the first-team squad. He looked a little unripe in his first Bundesliga start on matchday two against Hertha, showing only a few glimpses of his quality, but this is just the beginning.
eggestein.jpg?itok=-D9MkYqq
With Zlatko Junuzovic tied down, Werder Bremen are ready to welcome another midfield maestro. Following in the footsteps of Johan Micoud and Mesut Ozil, Eggestein has big shoes to fill in his quest towards becoming a complete number 10, though.

2. Julian Weigl (Dortmund)
The biggest compliment for Weigl is that he has played so well that no one thinks there is a 19-year-old controlling the ball in front of Dortmund's back four. After arriving from 1860 Munich for a modest €2.5 million in the summer, Thomas Tuchel's diamond in the rough is already sparkling. After finishing his debut against Gladbach with a 95.3% pass accuracy, Weigl left others to do the talking for him.
heigl.jpg?itok=hUGWEYEB
Weigl has impressed under new BVB manager Tuchel
"You always have the feeling he has a plan," said the club's sporting director Michael Zorc afterwards. Against Ingolstadt, he covered the most ground (11.3km) and was an integral platform to Dortmund's transitional play. His performances have also made Nuri Sahin's injury seemingly irrelevant, thrown doubt over the game time of Sven Bender and taken some heat off Ilkay Gundogan.

3. Marc Stendera (Eintracht Frankfurt)
Eintracht Frankfurt's quiet starlet, who was a winning member of Germany's Under-19 Euro squad and involved in the Under-20 World Cup tournament this year, is ready to break out this season. Despite a short summer holiday, Stendera said a two-week break with his girlfriend was enough time away from football because he loves the game too much to be away for longer.

Wonderful vision in the final third means he could, if nobody catches on too soon, become the kind of creative player Frankfurt haven't really seen the likes of since Uwe Bein and Andreas Moller. The 19-year-old's skills tape has already been uploaded to YouTube. Now it's time to add to the archive.

4. Mahmoud Dahoud (Monchengladbach)
Born in Syria, but football-schooled in Germany, Dahoud is a talented midfielder who looks set to break through in a Christoph Kramer-less Gladbach team this year. Still a little rough around the edges at 19, the youngster has a fantastic long-range shot on him, and has shown lovely touches of instinctive playmaking in his appearances so far. He isn't a direct Christoph Kramer replacement, but Dahoud is still figuring out whether he is best in the heart of the midfield or at the top of a diamond. Working under Lucien Favre this season at Gladbach is a perfect step for his development.
dahoud.jpg?itok=QkmMpF2U

5. Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich)
A "Kampfansage" (statement of intent) followed by a "wish you were here" has left Joshua Kimmich in the spotlight after the departure of his idol. Bastian Schweinsteiger has gone, leaving the newly arrived 20-year-old to fend for himself, but Kimmich hasn't let that distract him.
Bought for a hefty €9.5m from Stuttgart, there won't be much time for him to prove himself at Bayern and Kimmich will have to do something special to be regularly involved in Pep Guardiola's top-level side this year. The quality is there, though, so it just depends where Guardiola ranks him in his endless list of promising midfielders at the Allianz Arena.
kimmich.jpg?itok=2G6FXt7z

6. Felix Platte (Schalke 04)
Perhaps the forgotten name of Schalke's youth academy, but with the likes of Max Meyer, Leon Goretzka and even Leroy Sané already squad regulars, perhaps it is time for the young striker who impressed against Real Madrid last season to come of age. The 19-year-old said in July that he hadn't set himself any clear goals in order to take the pressure off himself. The arrival of Franco Di Santo earlier in the summer did that for him, but with new manager Andre Breitenreiter preferring two strikers and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar now 32 years old, Platte has every reason to believe he'll be in the mix more often this season.
platte.jpg?itok=DzEsPGTC


7. Timo Baumgartl (Stuttgart)
With Antonio Rudiger having left for Roma, Stuttgart's defence will have to look elsewhere for a hero. Timo Baumgartl gained all sorts of experience in last year's disappointing campaign, and despite a slow start from Stuttgart on the defensive side, there is no reason to think the 19-year-old won't just get better and better. With the rest of the squad's defenders too often inconsistent, this is Baumgartl's year.
baumgartl.jpg?itok=cPcaHJZh


8+9. Felix Passlack, Jeremy Dudziak (Dortmund)
A pair of wingbacks is exactly what Dortmund need this season. Lukasz Piszczek has said on numerous occasions he's only playing thanks to the medical team and although Marcel Schmelzer shined against Ingolstadt, who knows how long his form will last? With that in mind, both 19-year-old left back Jeremy Dudziak and 17-year-old right back/winger Felix Passlack could feature more in the first team squad.
Dudziak, who joined from rivals Schalke, has already played for Dortmund and the industrious and attacking left-footer will likely be involved again this campaign. Passlack captained Germany's Under-17 side in a European Championship campaign that ended with defeat in the final. He scored three goals, too, which tells you all you need to know about how much he loves to get up the right hand side of the field.

10. Niklas Stark (Hertha Berlin)
Recently signed by Hertha Berlin after battling bravely for one of Germany's sleeping giants, Stark is a great pick up for the capital club. He can operate in the centre of defence or midfield, but is perhaps at his best just in front of the back four.
stark.jpg?itok=XSBCO0Nz
Back in 2014, Stark captained Germany's Under-19s to European glory and was hailed by manager Marcus Sorg as "the best captain a coach could wish for in this generation." In 2013/14, he made 21 Bundesliga outings in a desperate attempt to stop Nürnberg's slide, and while that battle was in vain, he can help Hertha. His leadership qualities will be invaluable in a team in lacking players who can lead by example.

It really wasn't a shot or even me being serious at all. In fact I've seen others make similar jokes but I guess mine struck a nerve. But we hashed things out.

Props for handling it the right way. To be fair if someone is comfortable regularly posting pics of their kid in a thread like this, they should be comfortable with a joke of that nature.

Soccer-Angry Sherwood kicks bottle and snaps hamstring
Reuters
3 hours ago

LONDON, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood snapped his hamstring during his side's 2-2 draw with Sunderland after kicking out at a water bottle in disgust at the referee denying a penalty.

"I've done my hamstring. I never did it as a player, I have now done it as a manager," he told the Villa website (www.avfc.co.uk) after Saturday's match.

"I was going to kick bottles forward but there were too many people so I thought I'd be polite and backheel them and snapped my hamstring. It feels bad," he added.

"I must have looked like a spoiled brat. I tell my kids not to behave like that. Before today I thought I had calmed down."

The incident was triggered when Spanish midfielder Carles Gil, a second half substitute, was booked for diving instead of being given the penalty in the Premier League game at Villa Park with the score level at 2-2.

Villa had dominated the final half hour against bottom of the table opponents.

"We have been robbed," Sherwood told reporters. "It definitely should have been a penalty... my team couldn't have done any more today." (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Sudipto Ganguly)

man united really need more pace. 

looking at this lineup no one has great speed

 

schmidfield is terribly slow and the wingbacks arent fast either. 

 

depay is probably the fastest and he has good speed not great.
