Trey Muse is one of just two goalkeepers to be called into the final Pre-U20 World Cup training camp. Muse is joined by CJ Dos Santos, who’s currently on the Benfica roster.
The U.S. will face fellow U20 World Cup participants France (March 22) and Japan (March 25). Both matches will be played at Pinatar Arena in San Pedro del Pinatar, Spain. The U20 team will start World Cup play on May 24 against Ukraine and finish off Group D action with matches against Nigeria (May 27) and Qatar (May 30).
Muse, a Homegrown Player signing who was a standout for Indiana University the past two years, got his professional career off to a strong start last Friday when he led Tacoma Defiance to a shutout in their season opener. Muse does not yet have a cap with the U20s, but he did make three starts for the U18s in 2017.
The only other Sounders player who was expected to be in contention for a spot on this roster was Sam Rogers, but he suffered an injury during the last camp and has yet to make a return. He is expected to rejoin training by the end of this month, but it’s unclear if he’ll still be in contention for a spot on the World Cup squad.
