US U-20 National team coach Tab Ramos has named his roster for the upcoming Toulon Tournament and two of FC Dallas' own are on the roster.
Defender/midfielder Kellyn Acosta of senior FC Dallas squad highlights the list of local players. He is also the youngest at 17 years old on the roster. Former academy player and current UNC men's soccer team forward Danny Garcia was also called into the camp roster.
The roster is pretty good from my standpoint, seven MLS Homegrown players called up including Acosta.
The ten-team tournament will be used as a stepping stone for the US as they prepare for this summer's U-20 World Cup in Turkey (June 21-July 13).
The tournament will run May 28-June 8 in Toulon, France.
