Currently the youngest senior Goat, Chivas USA midfielder Marky Delgado tweeted a short time ago about joining the U.S. Men's National Team U-18 team for the next 10 days:

I was not familiar with any announcements about the U-18 team, so I asked Top Drawer Soccer's J.R. Eskilson about it, and he said the U.S. U-18s have an upcoming tournament in Portugal, the Lisbon International Tournament, which is scheduled to start a week from today. No official roster has been released yet, so that's why there hasn't been much info on it, and there may presumably be a camp prior to the tournament itself, although the details are currently unknown.

So it looks like Delgado will be going to the tournament, though we'll have to wait and get official confirmation on that front. Last year in the tournament, the U.S. went 0-1-2 to Poland, Slovakia, and Portugal, respectively. No word on what the Americans' schedule will be this year.

Congrats to Marky! Do Chivatown proud!
