Gil, Bunbury added to U.S. Under-23 camp

TealBunburyUSA (

Real Salt Lake's Luis Gil and Sporting Kansas City's Teal Bunbury saw their MLS seasons ended on Sunday as their teams suffered conference final defeats, but neither will have much time to sulk after being called into the U.S. Under-23 national team camp in Germany.

Gil and Bunbury bring the total number of players in the camp to 37 players. The camp, which kicks off today in Duisburg, Germany, consists of both Under-20 and Under-23 players, and will be taking place over the course of the next two weeks. The group will be playing friendlies as part of the camp, and is being overseen by U.S. youth technical director Claudio Reyna while Under-23 head coach Caleb Porter is completing his duties as University of Akron head coach.

Gil is a former U.S. Under-17 standout who is eligible for the Under-20 national team, while Bunbury joins a U-23 group he is expected to be a key figure for as the team looks to qualify for the 2012 Olympics.

What do you think of these additions to the camp? Who is missing from the camp that you think should get an invite?

  1. depth is good, think of all the players who weren’t “fixtures” but helped here or there. Maybe they were on a good run of form, maybe they were filling in.

    Goodson, Findley, Wondolowski, Buddle, Clark, etc.

    What about times when we have double tournaments (Gold Cup +Copa Ameria or Confed Cup)
