Josh Sargent and Timothy Weah were two of the 21 players named to the United States U-17 World Cup roster on Thursday.
Sargent, who starred for the U.S. at the U-20 World Cup this summer, recently announced he will sign with German club Werder Bremen in February when he turns 18.
Weah, the son of former Ballon d'Or winner George, signed his first professional contract with Paris Saint-Germain in July.
The World Cup takes place in India from Oct. 6-28, with the U.S. opening group play against the host country on Oct. 6 (10:30 a.m. ET).
The game against India will be followed by matches against Ghana on Oct. 9 (7:30 a.m. ET) and Colombia on Oct. 12 (10:30 a.m. ET). All of the U.S.'s group matches will be broadcast live on FS2 and UNIVERSO.
"This cycle of players is unique in terms of the quality, depth and work ethic of the group," head coach John Hackworth said in a news release.
"The biggest challenge in selecting this roster was the competition for spots at almost every position. Our team is looking forward to this opportunity to compete for the U-17 World Cup and are motivated to prove themselves on the world stage."
