The 20 youth players, 10 boys and 10 girls who will represent 14 countries, were chosen following a week-long section camp in Bologna, Italy.

In the inaugural event last year, the Europe girls' team won the International Division to advance to the Global Championship Game where they lost to the U.S. Central girls' team.

The Europe boys' squad reached the International semi-finals where they were defeated by eventual tournament runners-up, Africa & Middle East.

This year's edition runs from August 6-11 and will be held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World.

Goryanova and Myers will hope to inspire their respective teams to glory on a global stage.
