Sebastian Saucedo, who is on loan at Veracruz, and Danny Acosta are set to join the U.S. Under-20s in the 2016 Dallas Cup.

This is a particularly interesting move for Saucedo, who has been involved with both U.S. and Mexican youth setups in recent months. Last week, he said he had decided which national team he would commit to, but that he wouldn't be making his decision public at this point.

That doesn't mean that he will definitely stick with the U.S., but it's as strong an indicator as we've had so far.

Saucedo has played in two Liga MX games in 2016, and he also scored in a Copa MX match against league opponents Chiapas.

Acosta has been involved with youth U.S. national teams for some time, and this appears to be no exception for the 2016 signee.

Additionally, RSL-AZ graduates Brooks Lennon (now at Liverpool) and Aaron Herrera (at New Mexico) received call-ups.
