A litany of senior U.S. Men’s National Team stars have launched their careers at the U-17 World Cup- 38 players who have represented the United States at this tournament have gone on to be capped by the full USMNT. Appearances in previous U-17 World Cups has played a key role in building the current USMNT player pool – 10 players on the USA’s 2022 FIFA World Cup squad played in this age group tournament.
U.S. U-17 Men’s Youth National Team head coach Gonzalo Segares has selected 21 players for this important roster.
“After a two-year journey, we’ve put together a deep, versatile squad and we’re excited for them to take on the world’s best in Indonesia,” Segares said. “Representing the United States on the global stage is a massive honor and we’re ready to give our all. Our group opponents will be challenging, but they will provide exactly the high-level, competitive experience you want at a World Cup. I’m proud of how far this team has come throughout the cycle, developing from teenagers to young men, and I can’t wait to get started.”
