U-20 WNT Opens New Cycle with San Diego Training Camp

CHICAGO (Sept. 29, 2014) – The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team will begin a new cycle with a training camp running from Oct. 12-19 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California. Head coach Michelle French has called 32 players, nearly all of whom were born in 1996 or 1997. This age group will be focusing on qualifying for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, which has an age cut-off of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1996.

The lone player born in 1998 is midfielder Mallory Pugh, who was a starter at age 16 during the most recent FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada.

Being that the training camp takes place during the college season, there is only one current college player in the group in goalkeeper Rose Chandler, who is red-shirting her freshman year at Penn State. Chandler, as well as defender Kaleigh Riehl and midfielder Taylor Racioppi, were also on the USA’s 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Team that fell in penalty kicks to Korea DPR in the quarterfinal.

Mexico, which is preparing for the upcoming 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada, took the lead just after halftime when University of Washington midfielder Amanda Perez headed home a corner kick.

The USA tied the match eight minutes later when Imani Dorsey played through ball to forward Zoe Redei who dribbled into the penalty area and finished smartly into the lower corner.

The USA’s lineup featured seven players who were key members of the last U-17 Women’s National Team cycle, including goal scorer Reidei. Goalkeeper Rose Chandler, who was named to the USA’s 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Team, went the whole way in the nets.
