United States under-20 men’s national team head coach Tab Ramos has named his 20-man roster for the upcoming 2018 Concacaf U-20 Championship. The tournament, which doubles as qualifying for the U-20 World Cup, kicks off on November 1 and will take place at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL.

Ramos has named a side with a mix of domestic and abroad talent that includes familiar names like U-17 stars Ayo Akinola, Chris Gloster, and Jaylin Lindsey.

It’s important to note that roster changes are expected after the group stage of the tournament. Players like Sergino Dest from Ajax are expected to be called in if the U.S. get out of their group that consists of Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Trinidad and Tobago, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname.

All of the USA’s matches will be streamed on something called Concacaf GO, which will be available via a free trial through December 1.

Here’s the full roster for the tournament:
