Tab Ramos has included some New York flavor in his latest roster selection.

The United States Under-20 Men’s National Team head coach announced the 24-players who will participate in the country’s upcoming 11-day training camp, including the Red Bulls’ Tyler Adams and NYCFC’s Jonathan Lewis. This camp will prepare the squad for mid-February’s 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship, which will send four teams from the region to the 2017 FIFA U-20 Men’s World Cup in South Korea this May.

“Our objective for this camp is to continue our preparation for the U-20 World Cup qualifiers,” Ramos said. “After having a fitness camp followed by a camp with a combination of fitness and local games, now we are looking to get into game rhythm and select the final roster.”

New York Red Bulls prodigy Tyler Adams – along with goalkeeper Brady Scott – is the youngest player in Ramos’ squad.
