Preparations for the US U-23 Men’s National Team are reaching the final stages before Olympic qualifying matches. The US was drawn into Group A of the 2012 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament and will begin the competition against Cuba on March 22nd. US U-23 Men’s National Team head coach Caleb Porter has had two camps already with this group and is looking to further establish the squad moving into January.
In an interview with a reporter from ussoccer.com on December 12th, Porter commented on his immediate plans for the build up to the qualifying rounds. Porter spoke about the schedule for the next three months.
“We’ve got this camp Dec. 15-23. We want to do a camp in January, and the plan is to do another 10-day camp domestically. Piggybacking on the tail end of that, we want to travel somewhere in Central America, and we want to play two games,” said U-23 head coach Caleb Porter.
Rumors have risen about games against top Costa Rican clubs, namely Saprissa and Alajuelense with a third game to be scheduled. No official report has been released, but it is certain that Porter will hold a January camp in Los Angeles.
