Zac MacMath, Jack McInerney, Danny Mwanga, Amobi Okugo and Zach Pfeffer* are all set to be a part of the Generation Adidas team tour of the Netherlands next month, according to a report by Soccer Insider of the Washington Post.

Steve Goff, who authors the Soccer Insider blog, "acquired" 18 names that have been chosen to represent MLS during a tour of some of the league's brightest young stars. MacMath, McInerney, Mwanga, Okugo and Pfeffer* are all listed as part of the potential squad that will play in the World Cup runner-up nation. Both Okugo and Pfeffer are already in Europe, each training with a Bundesliga side (SC Freiburg and TSG 1899 Hoffenheim respectively).

Where in the Netherlands, and against which teams, the tour will travel is unknown. Last year, MLS sent a Generation Adidas squad, then coached by current FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman, to Spain, where the team faced off against reserve teams from the likes of Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. McInerney, Okugo and Danny Mwanga all featured on that Generation Adidas team.

*Pfeffer is "tentative," according to Goff. The 16-year-old is currently training with Hoffenheim in Germany.
