U.S. U-21 Women Bring 24 Players to HDC Training Camp
U.S. Under-21 Women’s National Team head coach Bill Irwin will bring 24 players to a training camp at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., running from February 17-23. Among several scrimmages, the U-21s will play a pair of games against WNT head coach Greg Ryan’s senior side on Sunday, Feb. 18, at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Seven of the players on the U-21 roster were members of the U.S. team that participated in the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Championship. Irwin will use this camp in part to formulate a roster that will travel to England from March 9-18 where the U-21s will play several top English women’s clubs.
