U.S. U-17 MNT Loses 4-1 to Norway at Open Nordic Tournament

NORRE AABY, Denmark (July 29, 2014) – The U.S. U-17 MNT dropped its second game of the Open Nordic Cup, a 4-1 loss to Norway Tuesday at Norre Aaby Stadium.

After giving up two first-half goals for the second consecutive game, USA’s Elijah Rice scored to cut the deficit to 2-1 early in the second half and breathe life into the U.S. attack. Norway put the game away with goals in the 60th and 79th minutes for the final margin. Norway’s John Saeter recorded a brace, opening the scoring in the ninth minute with a goal and striking again in the 79th minute to put the game further out of reach.

With the loss, the U.S. falls to 0-2-0 in the Open Nordic Tournament, having lost 2-0 to Denmark in the opener. The U.S. U-17s were previously unbeaten in 2014 and are currently playing with a split squad as they are also competing in the Copa Mexico de Naciones. The U.S. opens play in Mexico City against China PR on Aug. 2.

Next up for the U.S. in the Open Nordic Tournament is a match against the Faroe Islands on Thursday, July 31 before wrapping finishing on August 2 with a placement game.

Beach Soccer Takes Fourth Place at Mundialito

The U.S. Beach Soccer Team finished in fourth place at the three-day Mundialito from July 25-27 at Espinho in Portugal. Host Portugal won its fifth Mundialito, followed by Japan, Hungary and the USA.

The USA’s best opportunity for a victory came in the opener, a 5-4 loss in extra time to Japan on Friday, July 25. U.S. captain Nick Perera had two tallies, and after back-to-back goals from Michael Zaher and Andrew Feld, the USA held a 4-3 lead in the final period. Japan responded, however, with one goal in regulation and then scored in the second minute of extra time for the 5-4 victory.

On Saturday, July 26, the USA fell 14-1 to host Portugal, as Alessandro Canale had the lone goal for the U.S. in that match.

The U.S. Beach Soccer squad capped off the tournament with a 5-2 loss on Sunday, July 27, to Hungary, which had a 4-0 lead early in the third period. Canale and Chris Cummings each tallied a goal for the USA down the stretch to make it 4-2, but Hungary responded late to take third place in the tournament.
