The Colorado Rapids announced today that defender Shane O'Neill and defender/midfielder Dillon Serna were selected for the 2015 Toulon Tournament in France as part of the U-23 MNT roster.  The tournament, which runs from May 27-June 7, will be an excellent opportunity for both players to get valuable playing time as 2016 Olympic Qualifying starts to ramp up later this year.

Playing time has not been as prevalent for O'Neill and Serna this year, but both have made valuable contributions to the Rapids.  Serna has made 6 appearances with one start and has grabbed a goal and O'Neill has three appearances with two starts.

The U-23 MNT will be participating in Group A that is comprised of Costa Rica, France, Netherlands and Qatar.  Group B includes China PR, Mexico, Morocco, England and Ivory Coast.  The winners of their groups will play each other in the tournament final with the second place teams meeting for third place.  The U-23 MNT Schedule:

May 27 vs France at 11 AM MDT

May 29 vs Netherlands at 9 AM MDT

May 31 vs Costa Rica at 9 AM MDT

June 2 vs Qatar at 9 AM MDT

June  vs TBD--third place and final match
