U.S. Under-20 National Team to Battle Seleccion Haiti on March 5 in Miami

CHICAGO (Sunday, February 21, 1999) - The U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team will take on Seleccion Haiti on March 5 at 8 p.m. at Ted Hendricks Stadium in Miami, Fla. The match is one of several preparation games in March for the Under-20s as they ready themselves for the 1999 World Youth Championship in Nigeria from April 3-24.

Seleccion Haiti is one of the most successful teams in South Florida club soccer, having won the 1997 and 1998 Miami-area Copa Latina championships. Seleccion Haiti has a passionate fan following in the Miami area, where they regularly pack the 6,000-seat Ted Hendricks Stadium during Copa Latina.

The U.S. qualified for Nigeria '99 by finishing first in the CONCACAF Group A qualifying tournament, held last August in Trinidad & Tobago. The match against Seleccion Haiti is scheduled for the same day as the 1999 World Youth Championship Draw in Abuja, Nigeria, when the U.S. will learn their first round opponents for the competition.
