Canada has announced details and roster for an upcoming men's U-20 camp in Mexico from 1-9 July 2012. Canadian U-20 coach Nick Dasovic has selected 20 players for the nine-day camp that will include two international matches against host Mexico.
The two Men's U-20 International Friendly matches will be played against Mexico on Friday 6 July and Sunday 8 July.
Coach Dasovic's selections currently play club football in either Canada or across the ocean in Europe. This marks coach Dasovic's second project for 1993-born players, with an eye towards next year's biennial CONCACAF & FIFA competitions. Canada will compete in the 2013 CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship from 18 February to 3 March in Mexico. Four teams from the 12-team tournament will qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Turkey 2013.

Plus, at some point, you have to think that Petrasso will be in the Mix. So thats five right there. Withe Carriero that would be six.
I have watched Carmargo a few times this year. If he is not in mix, someone should have their head examined. Parker Seymour (currently in College) and Maybe Omari Morris, who is rely fast and lively will get a good look, i figure.

He is one of Akron's top recruits. Seems odd he wasn't called.

Piette and Henry are eligible right?
What happened to Crepeaux? the u-17 gk?
Who else from the U-17 squad who looked good is off this list and what are their situations?
@Villus - I listed the players who are eligible but have seemingly "turned their backs" on Canada - 1 player @ Rangers, 2 @ AC Milan. How "Canadian" these 3 actually are...I don't know. So I say "turned their backs" in jest.

Glad Henry and Piette are not here. As Lord Bob said, it bodes well for Piette (and Henry's first team careers they aren't released for this). The only others I can think of from the u17 team not here that maybe "should" be are Gasparotta (Rangers) and Hamilton (Toronto). Can't think of others off top of my head.
@lazlo - that's an interesting point. B/C of course Roberts was Crepeaux's u17 back-up. Neither are in this camp. Though Roberts is TFC's back-up so there was no way he was getting released.

On the subject of Henry was kinda sad to see that he wasn't selected even to the bench for tonight's game...wonder if there's a reason besides maybe not being in favor with Mariner?
I 've read that Henry was missing because he had suffered an allergic reaction. It didn't specify how serious or what caused the reaction.
