U.S. Soccer announced on Friday the latest U.S. Men’s National Team U-20 training camp roster, for a camp to be held in Raleigh, North Carolina from Sunday to July 22.

Among the 20 players called in by head coach Tab Ramos is Los Angeles Football Club forward Shaft Brewer, Jr. Brewer, 18, has been called up previously for the U-20s, so it seems like he could be in line to play in Concacaf U-20 World Cup qualifying in November, but no guarantees, of course.

Brewer, has played in three MLS regular season games and one U.S. Open Cup game to date for LAFC, all off the bench, playing just under 60 minutes total in competitive action. The fact that he’s getting some time on the field for LAFC, with a pretty set core group under Bob Bradley, is pretty significant, but the time with the U-20s is probably good to hone his game and give him more of a chance to stretch his legs.

Congrats to Shaft and best of luck in the camp.
