Jan. 14, 2013

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University freshman forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) was among a 20-player pool called into training camp for the U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team which was announced by U.S. Soccer and Head Coach Tab Ramos on Friday.

Allen trained with the squad in December and was called back to a second camp for week-long training.

Allen was named the TopDrawerSoccer.com Freshman of the Year, SoccerAmerica Freshman of the Year and earned a spot on the all-rookie team. Additionally, he was an NSCAA Second Team All-Northeast Region honoree.

He received recognition on the BIG EAST Second Team and the All-Rookie Team, after the forward led the Hoyas with 16 goals and two assists for 34 points as well as an impressive 10 game-winning goals to lead the country and rank sixth in the nation in goals. Allen was named BIG EAST Rookie of the Week on three occasions and was also named CollegeSoccerNews.com Player of the Week after an outstanding performance.

Allen spent time with the U-18 Men's National Team and earned his first cap at the Lisbon International Tournament.

He is among 20 players for a week-long training camp from Jan. 14-22 in Puebla, Mexico. Seventeen players, including Allen, have ties to the U.S. Soccer Development Academy as former players. Sixteen of the players on the roster were part of the previous U.S. U-20 MNT training camp in Florida, in which the U.S. defeated Venezuela 4-0 at FIU Soccer Complex in Miami, Fla.

During the camp, the U.S. will face Panama twice in closed-door matches on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 5 p.m. ET at the Estadio Olímpico, and on Monday, Jan. 21, at 4 p.m. ET at La Noria FC.

Puebla is the site of the 2013 CONCACAF U-20 Championship, in which the team will be competing Feb. 18-March 3. The event serves as the qualifying tournament for the CONCACAF region and will determine the four regional berths to the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey.

 

 

At the 2013 CONCACAF U-20 Championship, the U.S. will face Costa Rica and Haiti in Group A, while Canada, Nicaragua and Cuba make up Group B. Group C is comprised of Jamaica, Panama and Puerto Rico, while Mexico, El Salvador and Curaçao make up Group D.
