Promising Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Brandon Austin's impressive form has been recognised after he received a call up for the USA under-18 squad.

US Soccer announced a 28 player squad yesterday for the upcoming Slovakia Cup tournament, and this is Austin's first call up for the side.

The 18-year-old goalkeeper played a key role in Tottenham's FA Youth Cup run to the semi-finals, and has trained with the first team this season, seen below with star striker Harry Kane recently.

Austin has a long way to go to make it at Tottenham as he is fourth choice at best, behind Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm and Pau Lopez.

This tournament is a good way for him to further his development while beginning an international career.

It is also a potentially significant play by the USA to try and ensure they do not lose out on him to England.

Austin was born in Hemel Hempstead, England, but has dual UK/US nationality and is eligible to play for both countries at senior level.
