Philadelphia Union Academy forward Chad Letts will be on the Jamaica U17 team that is playing a pair of friendlies against the U.S. U17s later this month.
The U.S. and Jamaica kick off the first of two games today at 3 p.m. and will play again on November 6 at 3 p.m.
Letts, 15, is one of three U.S. Soccer Development Academy players on Jamaica’s roster. Atlanta United defender Blake White and Weston FC defender Jake Walker are also in the 25-player roster for the hosts.
Letts has a goal in one appearance for the Union U16s this season after scoring four goals in 11 appearances last season. He had two goals in a Generation adidas Cup qualifier for the Union last month.
Like they are for the U.S., the training camp and friendlies are part of preparations for U17 World Cup qualifying in April.
Jamaica’s U17 team advanced to the U17 CONCACAF Championship being held in Panama April 21-May 7 with a third place finish in the Caribbean zone qualifying in September.
