Olosunde and Adams - United States

U.S. U-17 National Team coach Richie Williams named his 20 man roster for the 2015 CONCACAF U-17 Championships. Red Bulls Academy players Tyler Adams and Matthew Olosunde are on the team that will compete in Honduras for a spot in the U-17 World Cup. The team, in Group A, kicks off its tournament against Cuba on Friday, February 27th. In addition to Cuba, the U.S. is in a group with Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, and Trinidad & Tobago.

Adams and Olosunde, who are both in residency at Bradenton, visited the New York Red Bulls preseason camp in Florida on February 23rd. Head coach Jesse Marsch "introduced the pair to the entire first team roster prior to the session and wished them good luck ahead of their tournament opener."

Powder - Trinidad & Tobago

Noah Powder, who plays for the Red Bulls U-16s, was called into the Trinidad & Tobago U-17s. T&T's first game is Friday against Guatemala. Powder traditionally plays right winger for the Red Bulls and has a few highlight videos online.

Bartley - Jamaica

Zaire Bartley is one of three United States-based players called into the Jamaican U-17 squad. Bartley, a striker with the U-16 Academy team, is described as "a very interesting wide player who can also play as a striker." He has three goals for the undefeated Red Bull U-16s this year. Bartley and Jamaica open on Friday against tournament host Honduras.
