Incoming Stanford freshman Amir Bashti was selected by U.S. Under-18 Men's National Team head coach Javier Perez as part of a 20-player soccer roster that will travel to Medugorje, Bosnia & Herzegovina, for the team's first training camp of 2015, running from April 22-May 1.
Bashti, a product of San Jose Earthquakes Academy who signed his National Letter of Intent in early February, gives the Cardinal another connection to U.S. Soccer. Current sophomore Jordan Morris, who started and scored for the Senior National Team in its 2-0 victory over Mexico last Wednesday, is currently training with the U.S. Under-23 Men's National Team in Carson, prior to that squad's match with Mexico's U-23s.
In December, Bashti participated in the U-18 MNT's camp in Marbella, Spain, which also included two matches against Germany's U-18s. He took part in his first U-18 camp in late October.
