The 2011 Nike International Friendlies trophy is on the Stadium Field and ready for kickoff!
Day 3 of the 2011 Winter Showcase kicked off today at 9 a.m. with 40 Development Academy games and the final round of Nike International Friendlies.
Today's the big day for the U.S. U-17s, taking on Brazil at 5 p.m. ET (live on FOX Soccer) to decide the champion of the Nike International Friendlies. The two are tied on four points, the U.S. group leaders with four goals scored. France still has a chance if the U.S. ties Brazil, but only if they can pull ahead on goal differential. France and Turkey meet at 2 p.m.
Yesterday's action included 12 hours of Development Academy contests, 78 in total, and two games of Academy Select teams. The players were chosen by U.S. Soccer scouts, technical advisors and youth national team coaches, many of whom were at the games last night.
