U.S. U-17 MNT Plays to Scoreless Draw Against Jamaica in Montego Bay

MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica (Jan. 28, 2010) -- The U.S. U-17 Men's National Team played to a scoreles draw against Jamaica in Montego Bay as part of final preparations for the upcoming CONCACAF U-17 Championship. Kendall McIntosh earned the shutout in goal behind the back four of Joe Amon, Zach Carroll, Mobi Fehr and Nathan Smith.

The U.S. will play another game against the home side on Jan. 30. Montego Bay is also the site of the CONCACAF U-17 Championship, so the team will continue to acclimate to its surroundings during the camp. After the training camp, Wilmer Cabrera's squad will return to Bradenton, Fla., on Feb. 3 to continue daily training and travel back to Jamaica a week later.

The U.S. was drawn into Group B of the regional championship and will face Cuba on Feb. 14 and Panama on Feb. 18 at Trelawny Stadium. The top two teams in the group will advance to the quarterfinals, and the four quarterfinal winners will earn a place at the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Mexico.
