Duncan added to USMNT Under-23 camp roster


The U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team will see a new face appear in camp this week ahead of a busy period in Bradenton, Florida.

U.S. Soccer announced Monday that New York Red Bulls defender Kyle Duncan has been added to the U-23 roster, joining Matt Freese and Donovan Pines as the latest arrival in the past few days. In addition, a U-23 player has tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival to training camp.

The player who tested positive is in isolation and observing the appropriate quarantine protocols. His positive test came during U.S. Soccer’s camp arrival testing procedures. All of his pre-arrival tests were negative.

Duncan appeared for the Under-23s vs. Japan in September 2019 and has been called in to two other training camps with the team. He made major strides this season in MLS, leading the Red Bulls in minutes played, making 24 appearances and scoring three goals.

Duncan also earned his first senior cap for the USMNT in a 6-0 friendly win over El Salvador in December.

Here’s an updated U-23 roster:

GOALKEEPERS: Matt Freese (Philadelphia Union), JT Marcinkowski (San Jose Earthquakes), Brady Scott (Austin FC).

  1. i assume not announcing the positive player is a HIPAA thing and there are false positives but it’s also a 7 day incubation period (average) where one can in fact be – – +. there is even some academic/medical debate if someone just infected would necessarily test positive. the tests are usually like how many centrifuge cycles does it take for x amount of virus to show. in the early stages of infection it would take longer to spin up. if it takes long enough it doesn’t meet the standard. a few days later your viral load hits the standard and you feel sick……
