Will Packwood has been called into the United States U23 squad for next month's friendly fixture against the Bahamas.

Should the 21-year-old Blues defender play, it will be his first cap at this age level.

The match is being staged on Nassau, Bahamas on 6 August and it will give the US U23 side the opportunity to test themselves against the Bahamas senior national team.

The international friendly is an important part of US team's preparations for 2016 Olympic qualifying to be held in 2015. 

Boston-born Packwood has previously represented the USA at U17 through to U20 level, while he was included in Jurgen Klinsmann's seniror squad ahead of a friendly fixture against Ukraine in Cyprus back in February.
