Sporting KC Academy U14 Cameron Duke

Sporting Kansas City Academy U-14 defender Cameron Duke is one of 20 players on the United States Under-14 Boys' National Team roster for a training camp in Zagreb, Croatia from May 7-17, U.S. Soccer announced on Wednesday.

The U.S U-14's will play three international friendlies while overseas: May 11 (Croatia), May 13 (opponent TBD) and May 15 (Serbia). Head coach Brian Johnson,  a former KC player from 1997-2001, will lead the squad in their fourth camp of 2015.

Duke -- who scored last weekend in the Sporting KC U-14's 3-2 win over Fort Wayne United during U-15 US Youth Soccer Midwest Regional League play in Rockford, Illinois -- has been a part of all four camps after debuting with the United States U-14's last October in Carson, California. In 2015, he began the year with the US U-14's in Bradenton, Florida (Jan. 3-10) before traveling to Spain (Feb. 6-16), Florida (March 7-15) and California (April 18-26) while representing the U.S. at the U-14 and U-15 age levels.

An Olathe, Kansas native, Duke is the younger brother of former Sporting KC midfielder Christian Duke (now with OKC Energy FC in USL).
