By: UCLA Athletics

Sophomore defender Michael Amick has been named to the 20-man U.S. U-20 Men’s National Team roster for the 2014 NTC Invitational that will take place in Carson, Calif. from July 14-18, as announced by U.S. U-20 MNT head coach Tab Ramos today.

Amick, a native of Sunnyvale, Calif., played in 18 matches in 2013 while making 16 starts. Spending the season mostly at center back, Amick played in six of UCLA's seven shutouts, amassing a total of 1,484 minutes to lead all UCLA freshmen. Additionally, he was named the No. 7 freshman to watch in the country by Top Drawer Soccer and helped UCLA earn the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003.

A member of the U.S. U-18 National Team throughout 2012, Amick has previously played for the U.S. at the 2012 Lisbon International Tournament in Portugal and in the U.S. U-18 European training camp, earning caps in friendly matches against the Netherlands U-18 National Team, Borussia Dortmund's U-18 Academy team, Club Brugge's U-19 Team and Feyenoord Rotterdam's U-19 team. In addition, Amick competed at the U.S. U-20 Men's National Team training camp in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. from Jan. 3-12 earlier this year and played for the squad at the 2014 Dallas Cup, leading the team to a runner-up finish.

The U-20 MNT will gather for training camp in Carson beginning on July 10 before playing its first games of the NTC Invitational against Chile on July 14 and Bermuda on July 16. The U.S. concludes tournament play against Australia on July 18.
