Seattle Sounders rookie Cristian Roldan is one of a few new faces being integrated into the U.S. Under-20 men's national team as preparations for this summer's World Cup continue. 

Tab Ramos has called on 20 players for friendlies in Austria against Qatar and Croatia's U-20 sides on April 21 and 25, respectively, and Roldan, Real Salt Lake's Jordan Allen and Philadelphia Union's Zach Pfeffer are the only ones who have yet to see time with the U-20s in 2015.

The U.S., which will play against host New Zealand, Ukraine and Myanmar in the U-20 World Cup, most recently congregated last month for a friendly against England's U-21s, which the young Three Lions won 2-1 in front of more than 11,000 fans in Plymouth. Maki Tall scored the lone goal in his first appearance with the U.S.

Columbus Crew's Romain Gall, who led the U.S. in World Cup qualifying with five goals, headlines the current group, along with 17-year-old Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, Dortmund midfielder Junior Flores and Freiburg goalkeeper Zack Steffen.
