Paxten Aaronson, Jack McGlynn and Quinn Sullivan are part of a 23-player United States U-20 roster that will be competing in the Revelations Cup in Celaya, Mexico.

New U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team head coach Mikey Varas will lead the USA against Brazil, Colombia and Mexico to kick off the new cycle.

“One of my strongest core values is to compete, to always embrace competition, and we’re getting into that right off the bat.” said Varas. “I want to get to know the group as well as I possibly can in the time that we have and lay a foundation for the type of culture that the U-20s are going to have leading into qualification. That culture is going to be everything to create the feeling that we’re on a mission. We’re going to evaluate where our strengths are and how we can capitalize on those strengths, and understand the areas we have to improve.”

The Union trio will depart immediately after Sunday’s Decision Day match against NYCFC at Yankee Stadium. The tournament runs through Nov. 17. The earlies the Union will start the playoffs is Nov. 20.
