CHICAGO — The United States Wednesday added Philadelphia Union defender Auston Trusty to the U.S. roster while releasing defender Marlon Fossey.
Fossey entered training camp carrying a groin injury but held hopes of healing enough to play in the tournament.
Trusty has been with the team as an alternate in case of injury since the team departed for training camp in Japan May 10.
The U-20 MNT roster remained at 21 players. The team arrived in Incheon, Korea Republic late Wednesday night ahead of its opening match against Ecuador at Incheon Stadium Saturday (4 a.m. ET; FS1).
