YNT Mar 19, 2012
Two first half goals from Brek Shea and a third from Michael Stephens delivered the U-23 MNT a 3-0 win against the Atlanta Silverbacks in a closed-door scrimmage Sunday night in Nashville. All 18 players saw action, with U.S. U-23 head coach Caleb Porter making seven changes at halftime.
"We accomplished a lot tonight," said Porter. "We had a chance to apply a lot of the things we have been working on in training and saw some details that we can clean up. Everybody got minutes, and we were able to get some extra fitness for guys who needed it. We came out healthy and with the result, so overall we are very pleased."
Porter will announce on March 20 the final 20-player official roster for CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying.
