Gerson Mayen called up to U.S. U-20 National Team

Chivas USA midfielder Gerson Mayen has received good news in the form of a call-up to the United States Under-20 National Team for a five-day camp in Florida. The camp runs from Aug. 10-14 in Sunrise, Fla., and also features two friendly matches against Guatemala. Information on the training camp and the rest of the roster can be found on the US Soccer website.

“I’m very happy to be picked,” said Mayen after practice on Wednesday. “I hope they keep calling me up. They hadn’t called me for a little while, so I have to keep working and giving my best.”

Mayen had previously been with the U-20’s in April for the Campos Verdes International Tournament in Portugal, where he made one appearance, his first with the U-20’s.
