Bruin Soccer Players Join U.S. Youth National Teams

Dec. 8, 2006

Five members of the UCLA men's soccer team have joined their respective U.S. Youth National Teams this week in Bradenton, Fla. Sophomore midfielders Sal Zizzo and Tony Beltran and freshman goalkeeper Brian Perk were called into the Under-20 camp, and freshmen midfielders Kyle Nakazawa and Michael Stephens are playing with the Under-18 National Team at the Nike Friendlies.

The U-20s will be training from Dec. 12-23. The 12-day camp marks the final time the team will be together before head coach Thomas Rongen names his final 20-player roster for the 2007 CONCACAF Final Round Qualifying Tournament, which will take place from Jan. 17-21 in Panama City, Panama. Rongen will announce the final 20-player qualifying roster before the team returns to Bradenton on Dec. 30 for an eight-day camp.

The U-18s opened play on Friday, Dec. 8 with a 0-0 draw against the USA U-17 '90s. Nakazawa started in the game for the U-18s, who will also play Brazil on Sunday, Dec. 10.
