Cabrera names U.S. roster for U-17 World Cup

U.S. U-17 men's national team coach Wilmer Cabrera has announced the final 21 players who will represent the United States in the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup. The U.S. will travel to Nigeria on Tuesday, Oct. 20, arriving five days before the team's first match.

The U.S. opens Group E play in Kano, Nigeria against Spain on Oct. 26 (2 p.m. ET on ESPNU and ESPN360.com). The team will stay at Sani Abacha Stadium to play Malawi on Oct. 29 (11 a.m. ET on ESPNU and ESPN360.com) before moving to Ijebu-Ode and Gateway International Stadium to finish the first round against United Arab Emirates on Nov. 2 (10 a.m. ET on ESPNU and ESPN360.com).

The U.S. qualified for the U-17 World Cup by winning Group A in April at the 2009 CONCACAF U-17 Championship in Tijuana, Mexico. The U.S. is the only country to have qualified for all 12 FIFA Under-17 World Championships. In 2007, the U.S. squad fell to Germany in the Round of 16. The team's best finish came in 1999, when a squad containing Landon Donovan, DaMarcus Beasley and Oguchi Onyewu reached the semifinals.

Roster

GOALKEEPERS (3): Keith Cardona, Earl Edwards, Spencer Richey

DEFENDERS (6): Zachary Herold, Perry Kitchen, Boyd Okwuonu, Tyler Polak, Jared Watts, Eriq Zavaleta

MIDFIELDERS (6): Marlon Duran, Luis Gil, Carlos Martinez, William Packwood, Nick Palodichuk, Alex Shinsky
