New York Red Bulls Academy prospect Chris Gloster continues to feature regularly for the USA U-17 Men's National Team. He has been named to the team's Fall Residency Roster, and that selection appeared to confirm his place as part of the core group coach John Hackworth is hoping to see qualify for next year's U-17 World Cup.
First, however, the team will have to successfully navigate the CONCACAF U-20 Championship, in April. In preparation for that tournament, the USA U-17s have been playing regional opponents in recent friendlies. That trend continued on October 22, when the young Americans played their Costa Rican counterparts in Florida.
Gloster got another start for his country.
