One of the best prospects in the Tottenham Hotspur Academy is getting the call up in October for Olympic qualification, not that it surprises anyone.

The U.S. Soccer Federation announced it's final roster for the three matches of Olympic qualification in October. CCV will also be the youngest member of the roster by almost a full year, with Arsenal's Gideon Zelalem being the second youngest and only other person born in 1997 on the team. I don't know about the rest of you, but I feel old now.

Here is the full roster announced by USSF:

Some other notable names for our U.S. soccer fans, besides Zelalem, include Borussia Monchengladbach's Mario Rodriguez, Stanford striker Jordan Morris who already has a few run-outs with the senior squad, and Columbus Crew SC's defensive midfielder Wil Trapp (You knew I was going to throw a local shout-out).

The matches will take place in the first two weeks of October. TV listings have not been announced as of yet.
