Andrew Baiera, Christian McFarlane, Maximo Carrizo and Jonathan Shore have all been included in Michael Nsien’s 20-player Under-16 squad.
The Stars and Stripes are set to take on Japan, the Netherlands and Nigeria at the tournament in Fukushima, Japan, competing at J-Village Stadium between May 25 and June 5.
NYCFC is the most represented Club with a total of four players on the roster, boasting two defenders and two midfielders.
