RENTON, WASH. - Seattle Sounders FC announced today that defender DeAndre Yedlin and Academy forward Jordan Morris have been called in by the U.S. U-20 National Team for training camp from April 22-29 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The team is preparing for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup, which takes place June 21-July 13 in Turkey.
Yedlin, 19, was previously called into the U-20 national team camp in January of 2012. Seattle's first Homegrown Player, Yedlin is the only player to play every minute of Seattle's first six league matches and has appeared in all 10 matches across all competitions.
