WASHINGTON - Georgetown University sophomore midfielder Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) and incoming freshman Christopher Lema (Ridgefield, N.J./Ridgefield Memorial) were among a 24-player roster called into training camp for the U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team.
The camp will be held at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, N.C., May 17-25. U-20 MNT Assistant Coach Brian Bliss will oversee the camp, which features friendly matches against the Carolina RailHawks on May 20, the RailHawks U-23s on May 22 and the Wilmington Hammerheads on May 24, while Head Coach Tab Ramos fulfills his duties as an assistant coach with the U.S. Men's National Team at the team's World Cup preparation camp in Palo Alto, Calif.
Muyl had an outstanding season for the Hoyas ranking third on the squad in scoring with four goals and a team-high nine assists for 17 points. He also scored the game winner against Butler. The freshman's nine assists ranked him second in the BIG EAST Conference.
Muyl was a unanimous selection to the BIG EAST's All-Rookie Team. He appeared in all 21 games with 13 starts to his credit.
He is no stranger to the national team suiting up with the U-18's and U-17's for international competitions. Muyl has previously participated in U-20 MNT camps.
Lema helped the Red Bulls win the U-18 and U-16 Development Academy National Championship as well as the Northeast Pre-Academy Championship and the New York State Cup. He played with the U.S. U-17 National Team for two years serving as team captain and receiving 24 caps tallying three goals, that squad won the 2011 Nike Friendlies Championship.
The midfielder is a varsity letterwinner at Ridgefield Memorial High School and was named First Team All-League in 2010.
The roster includes 28 players with ties to the Development Academy, including 12 players who are currently registered for Academy teams.
The camp will be the first at the U-20 age level for 13 players. Nine players on the roster, including Muyl, took part in the U-20's last domestic camp in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, last January.
In total, 21 players have U.S. Soccer Development Academy ties, with 10 of those players currently registered with Academy clubs; Muyl and Lema are both out of the New York Red Bulls Academy.
After the camp in North Carolina, the U-20 MNT will next meet at U.S. Soccer's National Training Center in Carson, California, for the NTC Invitational Tournament in mid-July.
Muyl and Lema are not the first Hoyas to spend time with the U-20's. Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) and Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) have both been part of the U-20 pool when they were eligible for the squad.
