WNT Defeats Haiti 5-0 at Ford Field in Detroit

DETROIT (Sept. 17, 2015) – The World Cup Champion U.S. Women’s National Team continued its Victory Tour with a 5-0 win against Haiti in front of a record crowd of 34,538 at Ford Field. The crowd was the largest to attend a soccer game in the history of the Detroit stadium.

Carli Lloyd struck first for the U.S. in the sixth minute. The 2015 World Cup Golden Ball winner was set up by a Crystal Dunn cross in a prelude of what would come over the next 84 minutes. In the 33rd minute, Dunn again had the assist, finding Christen Press with a near-post cross and she volleyed home for her 25th WNT score. Four minutes later, Lloyd added her second, and would complete her hat trick in the second half.

In the final minutes of the match, Dunn rose up for a header off a cross from Heather O’Reilly to earn her first international goal in her first start of the year and just her second cap of 2015. The teams will travel south for another match-up as the Victory Tour continues in Birmingham, Alabama on Sept. 20. For more information on tickets, click here.

    Five Things to Know: Haiti's U-20 National Team

    The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team will take on Haiti in its crucial second match of the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship on Tuesday, Feb. 21 at Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica in San Jose. The game can be seen live at 5:30 p.m. ET on Univision Deportes Network or via livestream on the official CONCACAF Facebook page.

    Here’s what you should know about the USA’s Tuesday opponent:

    Haiti Roster
    The two clubs with the largest representation of players on Haiti’s roster are Real Hope Football Academy (4) and Aigle Noir Athlétic Club (2). Seven other clubs from Haiti’s Championnat National D1 make it the most well represented league on the team, accounting for 65 percent of the roster.

    GOALKEEPERS (2): John Wodney Paris (Roulado), Isaac Rouaud (Le Mans)
    DEFENDERS (6): Ulysse Denso (Real Hope Academy), Emerson Georges (Baltimore), Odilon Jerome (ANAC), Yvenet Noel (Ouanaminthe FC), Wilmond Oracius (Viva Rio/BRA), Fardyson Pierre (Real Hope Academy)
    MIDFIELDERS (5):
    Alessandro Campoy (Unattached), Brian Chevreuil (Chateauroux/FRA), Clerveau Dutherson (Valencia), Abraham Duverger (Unattached), Wendy St Felix (ANAC)
    FORWARDS (7):
    Ronaldo Damus (Real Hope Academy), Kenley Dede (Don Bosco), Jonel Desire (ASC/HAI), Stevenson Guillaume (Racing FC), Roberto Badgio Louima (Real Hope Academy), Jimmy Shammar Sanon (Montreal Impact/CAN), Richelor Sprangers (NAC Breda/NED) 

    M.L.S. and U.S. Soccer Development Academy Connection
    One standout from Haiti’s roster is forward Jimmy-Shammar Sanon, who played for M.L.S. club Montreal Impact’s USL team, FC Montreal, in 2016 when his rocket of a goal vs. Charleston Battery was chosen as the league’s Goal of the Year. In his five games with FC Montreal, Sanon recorded one goal and one assist in 150 minutes played. Sanon joined Montreal Impact’s Development Academy in August 2012 and most recently appeared in 22 games and tallied nine goals during the 2015-16 Academy season. 

    Sanon took part in camps with Canada’s U-16 and U-18 National Teams before deciding to play for the nation of his parents’ birth, Haiti.

    What’s in a (nick)name?
    The Haiti national teams have two nicknames – Les Grenadiers, which means “The Soldiers” and Le Rouge et Bleu, “The Red & Blue”, referring to their red and blue uniforms. 

    2016 CFU Champions
    Haiti comes into the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship as the winner of the 2016 Caribbean Football Union’s Under-20 tournament; the first time Les Grenadiers won the competition in the country’s history. In the championship game, Haiti defeated Antigua and Barbuda 4-0 with braces from Roberto Louima and Ronaldo Damus. 

    Haiti also took home three pieces of individual hardware: goalkeeper Jhon Paris was awarded the Golden Glove, allowing only two goals, while Ronalso Damus’s six goals saw him earn the Golden Boot and teammate Roberto Louima was given the Golden Ball as tournament MVP.

    A Hot Start
    Haiti’s 5-1 victory vs. St. Kitts and Nevis on Saturday marked their best start and largest margin of victory in the CONCACAF tournament since 1984 when they opened group play with a 5-0 victory against Puerto Rico. Saturday’s win also saw Haiti end their seven-game winless streak in CONCACAF Under-20 Championship play, with the team finding the back of the net through Sanon in the fourth minute. Demonstrating a balanced attack, four more players scored, with Brian Chevreuil, Alessandro Campoy, Jonel Desire and Damus all converting. Depending on the outcome of the Panama-St. Kitts and Nevis match, a victory against the United States would almost certainly punch Haiti’s ticket to the next round.

    U.S. Soccer Announces SheBelieves Hero Contest Winner

    CHICAGO (Feb, 21, 2017) – U.S. Soccer and the U.S. Women’s National Team have announced the winner of the SheBelieves Hero contest ahead of the 2017 SheBelieves Cup. The contest aimed to find a girl between the ages of 13-17 that embodies the SheBelieves spirit.

    Conceived and developed by U.S. Women’s National Team players, SheBelieves is a movement to inspire young girls and women and encourage them to accomplish their goals and dreams, athletic or otherwise. The campaign was originally launched in the run-up to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup but has since evolved and grown into a special bond between the team and its fans, taking its powerful message of empowerment into communities across the nation. Through dedication, teamwork, perseverance and success, U.S. WNT players inspire new generations of young girls and women to be better and strive for better; they inspire them to believe.

    A SheBelieves Hero is a leader in their community, a confident and passionate individual who empowers others around her and is working to make a difference.

    After the SheBelieves committee received and evaluated the many submissions, four finalists were selected. These finalists’ videos were then shared via social media and a poll was created for people to vote on who they believe best embodies the SheBelieves spirit. 

    Taking 49 percent of the votes, Danielle Bosland was chosen as the 2017 SheBelieves Hero. Bosland, who wants to be a physical therapist, will travel to Harrison, New Jersey to watch the WNT take on England on March 4.

    Jenesis Smith finished second, Madison Bonin third, and Ryleigh Marquardt fourth.

    PREVIEW: U-20 MNT Looks to Bounce Back vs. Haiti

    The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team continues the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship with its second Group B game against Haiti on Tuesday, Feb. 21. The match kicks off at Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica in San Jose, at 5:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on Univision Deportes Network and via livestream on the official CONCACAF Facebook page. Fans can also follow along on Twitter @ussoccer_ynt.

    The U.S. comes in on the heels of a disappointing 1-0 loss against Panama last Saturday. Panama’s lone goal, which came in the 37th minute, was a half-cross, half-shot that took a slight deflection off a U.S. defender before dipping into the far left side of the goal.

    Earlier that day, Haiti comfortably defeated St. Kitts and Nevis 5-1 and now sits atop Group B with three points and a +3 goal differential over Panama. The U.S. needs to quickly regroup and get a favorable result against Haiti in order to keep their hopes alive of advancing to the second, six-team qualification stage where the top four teams will qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in South Korea.

    After its match against Haiti, the USA will close out Group B play against St. Kitts and Nevis on Feb. 24 at 5:30 p.m. ET. That game can also be seen on Univision Deportes Network and via livestream on the official CONCACAF Facebook page.

    USA VS. HAITI HISTORY:
    The USA is 3-0-0 all-time against Haiti in U-20 qualifying, leading by a combined 8-2 goal margin. The U.S. defeated Haiti 2-0 in the 2003 CONCACAF U-20 Tournament on Nov. 13, 2002, in Charleston, S.C. In 2007, the USA were matched up with Haiti again, in the group stage of the CONCACAF U-20 Qualifying Tournament in Panama City. During that game played on Jan. 17 2007, the U.S. used a hat trick from Andre Akpan to defeat Haiti 4-1. At the 2013 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship, the U.S. used goals from Luis Gil and Daniel Cuevas to scrape past Haiti 2-1 on Feb. 18, 2013.

    Tyler Adams ruled out for USA
    After taking a hard challenge in the 18th minute against Panama’s Justin Simons, who earned a red card and was later handed a two-game suspension, U.S. midfielder Tyler Adams has been ruled out for Tuesday’s match against Haiti. Adams, who had a stellar 2016 season with USL Champions New York Red Bulls II, stayed in the game but was unable to continue and was replaced by forward Emmanuel Sabbi in the 31st minute.

    Reaching the Big Stage
    Since 1962, Haiti has participated in seven CONCACAF U-20 tournaments. During that time, Haiti has made it out of the group stage once, in 1978, although they were unable to finish the tournament with a qualifying bid. In their 24 games played since 1962, Haiti has a 15-15-5 record.

    Since 1976, when the CONCACAF tournament became the qualification funnel to the U-20 World Cup, the United States has advanced to 17 World Cups out of 20 qualification opportunities and nine of the last 10.

    The USA’s best World Cup finish came at the 1989 FIFA World Youth Championship, where they fell 2-0 to Brazil in the third-place game.

    Qualifying Format Change
    The CONCACAF U-20 Championship format has changed for 2017 with 12 teams split into three, four-team groups. Previous tournaments featured two groups of six teams or four groups of three teams. Under the new setup, the top two teams from each group advance to a classification stage, featuring two groups with three teams each. In that second group stage, the top two finishers in each group qualify for the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup, and the first-place teams in each group move on to play for the tournament title.

    U.S. U-20 MNT Roster by Position: ROSTER GALLERY

    USA ROSTER BREAKDOWN:
    On Feb. 9, U-20 MNT head coach Tab Ramos named a 20-player roster for the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship. The roster includes one member of the USA’s 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup team in defender Erik Palmer-Brown. Ramos named Palmer-Brown the team captain a few days prior to the qualifying tournament.

    Eleven players represent clubs in Major League Soccer: defenders Justen Glad (Real Salt Lake), Erik Palmer-Brown (Sporting Kansas City), Tommy Redding (Orlando City SC) and Auston Trusty (Philadelphia Union), midfielders Danny Acosta (Real Salt Lake), Tyler Adams (New York Red Bulls), Coy Craft (FC Dallas), Jonathan Lewis (New York City FC) and Sebastian Saucedo (Real Salt Lake), and forwards Jeremy Ebobisse (Portland Timbers) and Brooks Lennon (Real Salt Lake).

    Midfielder Luca de la Torre and defender Marlon Fossey are teammates with English side Fulham FC, while Jonathan Gonzalez represents Liga MX side Monterrey and forward Emmanuel Sabbi is attached to Spanish club Las Palmas.

    The remaining five players play collegiately: goalkeepers Jonathan Klinsmann (University of California) and JT Marcinkowski (Georgetown), defender Aaron Herrera (New Mexico), and midfielders Jeremiah Gutjahr (Indiana University) and Eryk Williamson (University of Maryland).

    Eyes on South Korea 2017
    The U.S. has qualified for 14 FIFA U-20 World Cups and has its sights set on No. 15 in 2017. The 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Korea Republic will be held from May 20-June 11 in Cheonan, Daejeon, Incheon, Seogwipo, Jeonju and Suwon, with the final draw for the tournament to be held on March 15.
