CHICAGO (May 20, 2015) – The U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team will travel to Norway for a four-team tournament running from May 27-31 that also includes Norway, Sweden and England. The matches will be held in Fredrikstad and Sarpsborg in the southeast region of the country, about 60 miles south of Oslo and close to the border with Sweden. Both stadiums have artificial turf. 

The USA’s 22-player roster features 19 college players in addition to three current professionals, all whom play outside the United States: Daphne Corboz (Manchester City), Chioma Ubogagu (Arsenal) and Kate Stengel (Bayern Munich). Ubogagu and Stengel were members of the U.S. team that won the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan. University of Texas goalkeeper Abby Smith was also on that squad. 

The roster features seven members of the U.S. team that got knocked out on penalty kicks by Korea DPR in the quarterfinals of the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Stanford goalkeeper Jane Campbell, Duke defender Christina Gibbons, Notre Dame defender Cari Roccaro, Stanford defender/midfielder Andi Sullivan, Wisconsin midfielder Rose Lavelle, Florida forward Savannah Jordan and Harvard forward Margaret Purce. 

The USA opens the competition on May 27 against the Sweden U-23 WNT at Fredrikstad Stadium, faces England on May 29 at Sarpsborg Stadium, and finishes up the three-games-in-five-days set on May 31 against England at Fredrikstad Stadium.

U-23 WNT Defeats Norway 2-0 at La Manga Tournament

CHICAGO (Feb, 28, 2015) – The U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team made it two wins in a row at the Six Nations Tournament in La Manga, Spain, defeating its counterpart from Norway, 2-0, on goals from forward Shea Groom and midfielder Danielle Colaprico. 

The USA out-shot Norway 16-2, but didn’t get on the board until a few minutes before halftime. Midfielder Samantha Mewis, the only player on the U.S. roster with senior WNT caps, played a pass into Groom near the left side of the penalty box. Groom took a long touch inside to beat the defender and finished hard inside the near post. 

Groom, a second round pick by FC Kansas City in the 2015 NWSL Draft, turned provider on the insurance goal. In the 70th minute she got to the end line and played a pass back across the face of the goal. Boston Breakers fourth-round draft pick Stephanie Verdoia made a perfect dummy run and the ball rolled to Colaprico, a Chicago Red Stars first-round pick, who finished from the top of the six-yard box. Stanford goalkeeper Jane Campbell picked up the shutout for the USA. 

The USA was coming off a 1-0 victory against Japan on Feb. 26 and will try to make it a three-game sweep at this friendly tournament against England on March 2. After Mewis captained the side against Japan, defender Emily Sonnet wore the armband against Norway. 

The 22-player U.S. squad features 14 professional players, including 13 who were taken in the recent 2015 NWSL Draft. The only one-year pro is Chicago Red Stars midfielder Vanessa DiBernardo.

The USA will face the U-23 squads from Japan (Feb. 26), Norway (Feb. 28) and England (March 2). The friendly tournament also features China PR and Sweden.

With current U.S. U-23 WNT head coach Steve Swanson serving as an assistant coach for the senior team at the Algarve Cup in Portugal, Janet Rayfield will be the head coach for this trip. She was an assistant to Swanson when the USA won the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan.
