Real Salt Lake's Justen Glad and Sebastian Saucedo, and Real Monarchs' Christian Herrera were named today to a United States U-20 squad for a tournament in Serbia.
The trio will participate with the squad in the 2015 Stevan Vilotic-Cele Tournament, which has been taking place since 1994. While details in English are sparse after 2012, the tournament has largely featured Eastern European nations. It's not immediately clear if the U.S. has participated in the tournament before this point.
Herrera, who has yet to play for Real Monarchs, is the sole representative from USL; Glad and Saucedo are part of a 14-player MLS group in the squad.
Sept. 3, Serbia
