Two KC Players Called Up to US Youth Teams

Two US Youth teams named rosters today for upcoming camps/tournaments.  The US U20 team and U15 team made call ups official today, and both teams had Sporting KC players on it. 

Called up to the U20 team for a camp in California was Kansas City's first round draft pick Mikey Lopez. The camp will go through April 29th and is in preparation for this summer's U20 World Cup that the US qualified for earlier this year. Lopez has yet to make his debut for KC but has made the bench a few times already this season.

The other call up is from Sporting KC's academy. Defender Erik Palmer-Brown has been called up to the team.  The US U15 team will be playing in the Tournament Delle Nazioni in Grandisca, Italy.  The tournament takes place April 26th through May 6th.  Palmer-Brown is currently in the Bradenton residential academy.
