Derrick Jones, Auston Trusty called into U.S. U20 team for Four Nations Tournament

Philadelphia Union homegrown duo heading to Manchester, England this week



Derrick Jones and Auston Trusty have both been named to Tab Ramos’ 22-player roster for the Four Nations Tournament in England this week.

The tournament is scheduled for October 2-11 in Manchester, England.

Trusty has been a regular in U.S. youth teams – he was most recently called into the U20 team for the Dallas Cup in March – but Derrick Jones will be joining Ramos’ squad for the first time.

Former Philadelphia Union Academy forward Isaiah Young (Berlin, N.J.) is also on the team.

The U.S. will face Germany on October 5, the Netherlands on October 7 and hosts England on October 10. Both Germany and England have already qualified for the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup in South Korea.

The qualifying tournament for CONCACAF will be held in Costa Rica in February and March.

Out of 22 players, 11 compete abroad, four play with MLS clubs, three play at the collegiate level and one plays with a Development Academy club. Gedion Zelalem and Cameron Carter-Vickers are returning to the U20 squad for the first time since the 2015 World Cup.
