Franklin Named to Under-20 Roster for Suwon International Youth Tournament
Defender Sean Franklin has been named to the the 20-man roster for the U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team's upcoming Suwon International Youth Football Tournament in South Korea (Mar. 22-26).

The four-team tournament, which also features squads from Argentina, Egypt and South Korea, will serve as preparation for the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship in Holland from June 10-July 2. The U.S. will take on Argentina on Tuesday, March 22 at 2:30 a.m. ET, South Korea on Thursday, March 24 at 5 a.m. ET and Egypt on Friday, March 25 at 10:30 p.m. ET.

"Just like when I was selected to go to Florida, I'm excited and glad to get this opportunity," Franklin said.

Franklin was selected to train with the U-20 National Team from February 11-20 in Bradenton, Fla. and made an impression to earn a spot for the Suwon Tournament.

"I guess they liked the way I played because I got a call back," Franklin said. "I hope I play well so I can make the team that goes to Holland for the World Youth Cup."
