Galaxy Academy Player Called Into U-20 Camp

Galaxy Youth Program defender Marcus Watson is in Sunrise, Fla. today with the U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team, kicking off a 26-player, eight-day training camp that will include matches against Haiti and Canada. You can see the complete roster here.

Watson is the second member of the Galaxy's Youth Program to be called into U-20's in as many months. Forward Tristan Bowen was called into the squad last month for three matches in Spain, scoring a goal against Real Madrid.

Among the players called in by coach Thomas Rongen are five European-based players and four current MLS players.

Watson, 19, is a native of Rancho Cucamonga and has played with U.S. Under-18 squad and is expected to play for the Galaxy U-20 squad in 2009.

Congrats to Marcus for getting the invite to U-20s MNT. Wish him fun, fortitude, learning, and luck. Thomas Roengen pciked a squad very rich in Forwards; there's only like 7 true defenders and about 8 or so midfielders... the rest are all forwards. I guess I can imagine what Thomas will be focusing on!!!
