Napoli’s Bernardo Called Up for US U-20 Team

July 16, 2008

SSC Napoli reservist Vincenzo Bernardo has been called up to the US Under 20 national team to play in the Milk Cup, an international youth tournament held in Northern Ireland. He departs on July 24th and is expected back in Naples in early August.

The US, which won the tournament in 2005, opens against host Northern Ireland on July 28th and later faces Israel and Wales in group play. Coach Thomas Rongen’s US U-20 team beat Northern Ireland 3-0 during their last meeting in April 2008, helped by a goal from Bernardo.
