The following list details my first and second choice eleven for the 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 age groups. This doesn't necessarily mean that this is what each United States Youth National Team should look like because some players are good enough to play above their age group. I have only included players that are not provisionally cap-tied to other countries. You can see the top U.S. eligible youth players that are provisionally cap-tied tied at the bottom of this page.
