WASHINGTON - Sophomore goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) and freshman forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) were among a 24-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 Thursday.
Gomez is no stranger to the program after participating in previous camps with the squad. This past season, he started 20 games in the net for the Blue & Gray with a 0.89 GAA and 70 saves posting a record of 15-2-3.
Gomez earned NSCAA All-Northeast Region honors and was named Second Team All-BIG EAST. He helped the Hoyas to the 2012 national championship game and made a name for himself stopping two penalty kicks in the national semifinal against Maryland. For his efforts, Gomez was named to the College Cup All-Tournament Team.
Allen was named the TopDrawerSoccer.com Freshman of the Year and earned a spot on the all-rookie team. Additionally, he was an NSCAA Second Team All-Northeast Region honoree.
Earlier this year, 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.
He spent time with the U-18 Men's National Team and earned his first cap at the Lisbon International Tournament.
The pair is among 24 players that will be the last of the year for the group and made up of players primarily born in 1993. It will be the first camp since learning its 2013 CONCACAF U-20 Championship opponents as the team begins preparations in earnest for the tournament. The CONCACAF U-20 Championship, which takes place Feb. 18-March 3 in Puebla, Mexico, serves as the regional qualifying tournament for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
Seven players on the roster were born in 1994, with the remaining 17 born in 1993, half of the players currently play in college. Throughout the course of the week, the team will play two closed-door matches - an intrasquad game on Dec. 18 and a match against Venezuela on Dec. 21. Both games will be closed to the public.
Last month, the U.S. U-20 MNT was drawn into Group A of the 2013 CONCACAF U-20 Championship alongside Costa Rica and Haiti. The U.S. will play all of its group matches at Estadio Olímpico C.U. in Puebla. In the group stage, each team will play the other teams once, with the top two teams from each of the four groups advancing to the quarterfinals to be played Feb. 26 and 27. The semifinals are scheduled for March 1, with the final and third-place game slated for March 3. All four semifinalists qualify for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup from June 21-July 13, 2013, in Turkey.
