Meet the future of the USMNT


To call the newest U.S. Under-17 national team residency roster diverse is an understatement.

Not only does the squad boast players from all over the country, it actually has players coming from across the globe. Players from Japan and Guatamala are included in a squad that also has a strong MLS academy influence.

Why should you care about young teenage players? You should care because the U.S. Under-17 residency program has produced the likes of Landon Donovan, Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore and continues to be the best producer of talent in the nation.

Here is the U.S. men's Under-17 Residency program 40-player roster:
