The United States’ U-20 men’s national team will head across the Atlantic to Spain in order to battle opposition in the 2014 International National Teams Football Tournament where they will play three matches.

On Nov. 12, the Stars and Stripes will encounter Russia; three days later, Ireland will be the primary foe, and on Nov. 18, Tab Ramos’ team will meet North American neighbors Canada in competition.

Defender Matt Miazga and goalkeeper Santiago Castano made it from the NY Red Bulls. Youngster Tyler Turner and Tommy Redding of 2015 MLS squad Orlando City also appeared on the roster, in addition to several other MLS players: midfielders Kellyn Acosta from FC Dallas, Romain Gall of Columbus, as well as Galaxy’s Bradford Jamison IV and San Jose’s Tommy Thompson (both forwards).
