ST. LOUIS, Mo. – U.S. Soccer announced that Saint Louis FC Academy goalkeeper Seth Stiebel has been called into the U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team Camp which marks his first appearance for the U20 squad.
The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team will embark on a 12-day training camp that will start in Florida and end with two matches against Honduras in San Pedro Sula. After six days of training in the Sunshine State, the U-20 MNT will travel south for two matches against Los Catrachos on May 17 and 19. The matchups mark the first time the USA has faced Honduras since the 2017 Concacaf U-20 Championship final, in which the previous U-20 MNT cycle defeated Honduras in penalty kicks to claim the first regional title for the U.S. U-20 program.
“I am encouraged by the start of this group,” said U-20 Men’s National Team head coach Tab Ramos. “Their effort and confidence displayed during our trip to Spain was impressive, especially considering that our two games against France were very difficult. Some players on this roster going to Honduras have very little or no international experience and with World Cup Qualifying fast approaching, we are looking forward to providing valuable challenges to this U-20 Men’s National Team. Honduras was the runner-up in last year’s Concacaf U-20 Championship and will again be one of the strongest teams looking to secure a place in next year’s FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland. Playing against them on their home field will allow our players and team to grow on and off the field.”
