Former Northwestern soccer goalkeeper Tyler Miller has been named to the United States Under-23 National Team squad by head coach Andi Herzog. The 19-man roster was released by U.S. Soccer Sunday:
Miller is one of two goalkeepers who will participate in the team's four day training camp from March 23-26 in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The team will then take on the Bosnian Under-23 team before travelling to Denmark to take on the Denmark Under-23 side.
This is Miller's first U-23 call-up, and it's a big one, as the Americans begin to prepare for the 2016 Olympics in Rio De Janeiro. Qualifying for that tournament, which is an Under-23 event, begins later this year. Miller has targeted the Olympics as a goal for himself on international stage, and as a way to break into the U.S. National Team picture.
Earlier this year, we profiled Miller, who is currently playing in the German fourth division.
