Red Bulls midfielder Daniel Edelman and defender John Tolkin have been selected to the United States Under-20 youth national team roster for its October training camp, U.S. Soccer announced Monday.
The Red Bulls homegrowns will participate in the training camp in Dallas, Texas from Oct. 25 to Nov. 5, which will take part with the U.S. men’s national team.
This will be fifth time that Edelman has been called into U-20 duty. Edelman was an important factor in the U-20’s winning the U-20 CONCACAF Championship, which qualified the Americans for the U-20 World Cup and 2024 Olympics. The Warren, N.J. native captained the squad three times during the tournament.
Edelman finished his first MLS season, in which he made 16 appearances and started 10 matches, which included nine consecutive starts. He scored his first career MLS goal and winning goal against Inter Miami CF on Aug. 27.
Tolkin earned his first call-up to the team. He was named sixth on the 2022 MLS 22 Under 22 List after appearing in 31 matches this season. He had a goal and three assists. The Chatham, N.J. native signed a four-year contract with the Red Bulls on Oct. 5.
