A Familiar Face

Last night we told you about a new face in camp, but this morning there was a familiar face at the breakfast table. Thomas Rongen, head coach of the U-20 MNT has joined the staff for the rest of camp. Rongen came over from the MLS Combine last night.

Six players in Bradenton (McCarty, Rogers, Seitz, Smith, Valentin and Zimmerman) played for Rongen at the Under-20 World Cup last summer in Canada, and Arturo Alvarez played for the Holland native at the 2003 tournament as the youngest player named to the original roster (Freddy Adu was later named to that roster as a replacement).
