FRISCO, Texas - FC Dallas Homegrowns Jesús Ferreira, Ricardo Pepi, Brandon Servania, Tanner Tessmann and A.S. Roma's Bryan Reynolds have all been included in the U.S.'s preliminary roster for the 2020 Men's Concacaf Olympic Qualifying tournament beginning in March. 

Ferreira and Tessmann featured in the senior team's most recent outing against Trinidad and Tobago which saw Ferreira steal the headlines with a two-goal and three-assist performance. Servania, who recently went on loan to SKN St. Pölten, made his senior USMNT debut last year in a 1-0 win over Costa Rica after starring in the U-20 World Cup in 2019. Pepi has made seven appearances at the U-17 level, including two starts in the U-17 World Cup. Reynolds has made 20 appearances at various USMNT youth levels and was recently called into the U-23 squad (but left the camp early to complete his move to Roma last month). 

Per Concacaf rules, the final 20-man USMNT squad must be submitted at least 10 days prior to the start of the tournament. The U.S. will compete in the tournament's opening game against Costa Rica on March 18 at Jalisco Stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico. The team will also face the Dominican Republic (3/21) and Mexico (3/24) to round out its group stage matches.
