Colorado defenseman Auston Trusty added to US training camp | national


PHOENIX (AP) – Colorado defenseman Auston Trusty was added to the U.S. training camp roster on Saturday to keep Major League Soccer players in shape ahead of the World Cup qualifiers.

The 23-year-old has played for junior national teams but not for the senior national team. He was invited to coach Gregg Berhalter’s first training camp in January 2019, but did not appear in matches against Panama and Costa Rica and only returned to camp last month. It was not used in the 1-0 victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina.

His addition brings the total to 20 players training in Phoenix through Jan.21, a camp that will include closed-door scrimmages. Some will join players based in Europe when they travel to Columbus, Ohio for a World Cup qualifier on Jan.27 against El Salvador.

The revised list:

Goalkeepers: Sean Johnson (New York), Gabriel Slonina (Chicago), Matt Turner (New England)

Defenders: George Bello (Atlanta), DeJuan Jones (New England), Brooks Lennon (Atlanta), Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls), Miles Robinson (Atlanta), Auston Trusty (Colorado), Walker Zimmerman (Nashville)

Midfielder: Kellyn Acosta (Colorado), Cole Bassett (Colorado), Djordje Mihailovic Montreal), Sebastian Lletget (New England), Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders), Jackson Yueill (San Jose)

Forwards: Paul Arriola (DC), Jesús Ferreira (Dallas), Jordan Morris (Seattle), Gyasi Zardes (Columbus)
