Rosters and Results: keeping up with the US U17, U20 and U23 men's national teams

Taylor and Travis attempt to cure their USMNT Blues by taking a prolonged look at the next generation of talent coming through. The U17 World Cup starts in late October. How is the team preparing and who are we most excited to see in that competition? The U23s face Olympic qualifying in the spring of 2020. How big of a deal is the qualifying process, should they call up all age-eligible players, and which U23s might get looks at senior level in the near future? The U20s have started a new cycle with Tab Ramos still in charge. Who are the next big names listeners might want to keep an eye on? Hint - League One might be the place to be! All that plus listener questions and a somewhat extended Mighty Ducks 2 analogy!
