Tottenham defender called up to Under-20s after recent injury

By Harvey Byre

Young Tottenham centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers has been announced in the United States Under-20s team for the 2017 FIFA World Cup.

The 19-year-old bright prospect has been out since April with a knee injury, but U.S head coach Tab Ramos has included him in his 21-player roster.

The defender has already been capped four times at Under-23s level for the United States, while he has also been capped twice at Under-20 level and the Southend-born player will be keen to add to those caps in Korea Republic over the next month.

It is detailed that an initial portion of the United States team will depart for Japan on May 10, while the remaining players will meet in Korea Republic on May 17.

It is not said which group Carter-Vickers is in, but he was already believed to be missing the rest of the Premier League campaign scheduled to finish on May 21 after his injury.

The Tottenham youngster is one of four English-based players in the team with Fulham duo Marlon Fossey and Luca De La Torre alongside him as well as Arsenal’s Gedion Zelalem.

Carter-Vickers has only previously played four times in for the Tottenham first team in the cups, but he will be hoping this summer’s experience can put him in a good position for the next campaign.
