Gaga Slonina leads USMNT roster for the U-20 World Cup

Chelsea goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina headlines the USMNT squad playing in the U-20 World Cup in Argentina later this month. 

Mexican-American Jonathan Gomez and forwards Kevin Paredes and Cade Cowell are also on the list announced Wednesday by coach Mikey Varas. 

Sadly, Paxten Aaronson, who won the Concacaf U-20 Championship’s Golden Boot and Golden Ball awards last summer, will not feature in the tournament after German club Eintracht Frankfurt decided not to release him.
