Yesterday it was the news of Walker Zimmerman earning a United States national team call with the U-23s, and now today we see that Coy Craft will be out as well with the U-18s. US national team Under-18 head coach Javier Perez has called up Craft as one of the 20 players for a training camp in Bosnia & Herzegovina.
The camp will run from this Wednesday through May 1.
During the trip, the US U-18s will play friendlies against club side Siroki Brijeg on Saturday, followed by two games against Bosnia's U-18s on April 28 and April 30.
Craft is one of six MLS players to be apart of this camp as well. Defenders Justen Glad (Real Salt Lake) and Tommy Redding (Orlando City SC), midfielders Sebastian Saucedo (RSL) and Ben Swanson (Columbus Crew SC) and forward Victor Mansaray (Seattle Sounders) are the others with Craft.
