U-20's Come Up Short in Spain

In their first two games during their week-long camp in Spain, the US U-20's lost to Real Madrid's reserves 5-3, and tied Atletico Madrid's reserves 0-0. The trip will conclude tomorrow after a match with Rayo Vallencia's reserves. It's nice to see Rongen bring together a strong squad for camp, before the team reconvenes for U-20 WCQ early next year. Notable players from the MLS include, Tristan Bowen (LA Galaxy), Jorge Flores (Chivas USA), Anthony Wallace (FC Dallas), Abdusalam Ibrahim (Toronto FC), and Josh Lambo (FC Dallas). While lesser known players plying their trade abroad include, Bryan Arguez (Hertha Berlin), Vincenzo Bernardo (SSC Napoli), Kyle Davies (Southampton FC), Gregory Garza (Sporting Lisbon), Jared Jaffrey (Club Brugge), Alfredo Morales (Hertha Berlin), and Giuseppe Nazzani (Bologna FC).

Flores, Bowen and Ibrahim tallied against Real Madrid, while Josh Lambo played the full 90 in net in both games so far.
