Trio of Union GAs head off to Spain

Posted on 30 November 2010 by Breton Bonnette

Danny Mwanga, Jack McInerney, and Amobi Okugo left for Spain yesterday with the Generation Adidas squad to spend the next 10 days or so going toe to toe with some of the best youth talent in Spain. Okugo, specifically, will be working double duty after having played apart in the US Under-20s matches with Colombia and Mexico, two losses decided by penalty kicks.

FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman will head up the team of Generation Adidas players after a season that saw the Hoops land in the MLS Cup finals, a relatively shocking development for Dallas fans. The fixture list will consist of Real Madrid on Thursday (Dec 2), Rayo Vallecano next Tuesday (Dec 7), and Atletico Madrid next Thursday (Dec 8).

Goalkeepers – Stefan Frei (Toronto FC), Sean Johnson (Chicago)

Defenders – Jeremy Hall (Portland), Ike Opara (San Jose)

Midfielders – Corben Bone (Chicago), Danny Cruz (Houston), Dilly Duka (Columbus), Luis Gil (RSL), Baggio Husidic (Chicago), Amobi Okugo (Philadelphia), Brek Shea (FC Dallas), Tony Tchani (New York)

Forwards – Juan Agudelo (New York), Tristan Bowen (Los Angeles), Teal Bunbury (Sporting Kansas City), Peri Marosevic (FCD), Jack McInerney (Philadelphia), Danny Mwanga (Philadelphia), Andrew Wiedeman (FC Dallas)

Some are recent graduates of the Generation Adidas program but 13 of the 15 currently under a GA contract will be making the trip. It should be nice to see Jack Mac, Okugo, and Mwanga back in action. Check out MLSSoccer.com occasionally as there should be video of the trip.
