Six college players have been called into the roster for the U.S. Under-20 team’s trip to Toulon, France, for the Toulon Tournament May 28 to June 8.

Coach Tab Ramos included Santa Clara goalie Kendall McIntosh, Creighton defender Eric Miller, UCLA defender Javan Torre, Louisville midfielder Marlon Hairston, North Carolina forward Daniel Garcia and Alfred Koroma, a forward for Akron on the 22-man roster for the trip.

The Under-21 Toulon Tournament is the U-20s final game preparation for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup, which runs June 21-July 13 in Turkey.

“Obviously we’re excited for the tournament and to have this last chance to evaluate our team heading into the U-20 World Cup,” Ramos said in a news release on the U.S. Soccer website. “We’ll have a couple players who have not been with us before and some others who we want to look at a little more as we finalize our 21-player roster. All of the players are being considered for Turkey.”
