Oscar Sorto among LA Galaxy Academy alums called up to U.S. U-20's for Toulon Tournament

By Adam Serrano

LA Galaxy Homegrown right back Oscar Sorto has been named to the 22-man U.S. U-20 squad for the upcoming Toulon Tournament in France. 

The tournament takes place from May 28 to June 8th and serves as the final tune-up before this summer's U-20 World Cup in Turkey. Joining Sorto will be LA Galaxy Academy alums Javan Torre and Jeffrey Payeras, who were members of a training camp at The Home Depot Center in April. 

One omission, however, is LA forward Jose Villarreal, who has been a regular for the U-20's throughout their qualification campaign, possibly due to his status with the Galaxy first team. Although not called up, Villarreal is expected to make the squad for the upcoming World Cup.

The complete roster is below...

GOALKEEPERS (2): Cody Cropper (Southampton FC/England), Kendall McIntosh (Santa Clara Univ.)

DEFENDERS (7): Eric Miller (Creighton Univ.), Juan Pablo Ocegueda (CD Guadalajara/Mexico), Shane O'Neill (Colorado Rapids), Jeffrey Payeras (CSD Municipal/Guatemala), Caleb Stanko (SC Freiburg/Germany), Oscar Sorto (LA Galaxy), Javan Torre (UCLA)

MIDFIELDERS (7): Kellyn Acosta (FC Dallas), Marlon Hairston (Univ. of Louisville), Benji Joya (Santos Laguna/Mexico), Mikey Lopez (Sporting Kansas City), Collin Martin (Wake Forest Univ.), Dillon Serna (Colorado Rapids), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew)
