Hannover’s Chris Gloster is a New York Red Bulls Academy product. The young American had an eye-catching 2017, winning the CONCACAF Men’s U-17 Championship with the USA and playing in the Men’s U-17 World Cup in India - where his team lost in the quarterfinals to eventual champion England. He parlayed that into a move to Hannover earlier this year, but he remains part of the US Soccer Youth National Teams set-up.
Gloster was part of the USA’s 2018 CONCACAF Men’s U-20 Championship winning squad, meaning he will be contention to play in the 2019 U-20 World Cup.
And he can add another accolade to his growing list of achievements: he was named to the 2018 CONCACAF Men’s U-20 Championship Best XI.
All told, there were eight American players named to the 2018 CU20 Best XI, including Golden Glove winner Brady Scott and Golden Ball winner Alex Mendez.
