Man U Premier Cup on Horizon for Weston FC U-13/14s

Weston FC’s U-13/14 Development Academy team, the USA’s representative at the 2014 Manchester United Premier Cup, will be back in action on Aug. 6 in England. Weston was rewarded with the selection to this tournament back in mid-June at the first Academy U-13/14 Showcase, and it is an opportunity the club is looking forward to on many levels.

“This is the highest youth soccer competition at this level and we’ll be facing some great teams that are participating in this tournament,” Weston FC head coach Marcelo Neveleff said. “We came with one simple goal – to put the U.S. Soccer name as high as we can.”

Getting to this stage was a yearlong process of success and continued development. Over the Academy’s first U-13/14 season, Weston FC posted an impressive 28-1-4 record, with a wide array of players contributing on both ends of the field. Nicolas Garcia-Morillo (28 goals) has been the team’s scoring leader, and it was only fitting that his tally won the finale of the 2013-14 Academy U-13/14 Showcase against Georgia United.

Heading into the Manchester United Premier Cup, Weston FC has taken some extra steps to get ready for the event.

“We put together a mini-camp in Wigan, a week before the Manchester Cup kicks up, to properly prepare for the tournament,” Neveleff said. “This has allowed the players to adapt to the country, environment and competition so we can get to the first game in the best possible shape.”

The pinnacle of Weston’s 2013-14 season came on the final day of the 2013-14 Development Academy U-13/14 Showcase in Westfield, Indiana. Weston and Georgia United were both in heavy consideration for the Manchester United Premier Cup spot by U.S. Soccer’s technical advisors heading into the June 16 matchup.

Both teams played at an intense level, with George Acosta boosting Weston’s lead to 2-0 in the opening 20 minutes, followed by Georgia United’s Carlos Pineda and Langston Blackstock scoring a goal apiece in a two-minute span to tie the score at 2-2 in the 59th minute. Carlos Dulcey’s 69th-minute tally helped Weston regain the lead, but Blackstock’s second goal in the 74th minute once again tied the score heading into the final minutes. Weston FC had the final say thanks to a dramatic 80th-minute goal from Garcia-Morillo.

That goal ultimately catapulted Weston FC to the top spot as the USA’s representative at the 2014 Manchester United Premier Cup.

“We are proud to represent the U.S. in this prestigious Manchester Cup, and we take this responsibility with great pride and humility,” Neveleff said. “This reward comes after many years of trying to develop a club culture, a way of playing and a lifestyle. The constant support and effort made by a lot of people, including coaches, board members, volunteers and most importantly our players, has made this possible.”

More than 8,000 teams from 43 countries have taken part in this tournament. The Manchester United Premier Cup opening ceremony and draw will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 5, as Weston FC will learn its first opponent for the following day.

The following 20 clubs are on hand for this year’s tournament:
Argentina: CA Rosario Central
Austria: SK Sturm Graz
Brazil: SC Internacional
China PR: Shandong Luneng Taishan FC
England: Manchester United (host)

19 Players Named to Roster for U-23 MNT Camp from Aug. 3-7 in Bahamas

CHICAGO (Aug. 1, 2014) – A 19-player U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team roster has been named for a five-day camp from Aug. 3-7 at Nassau, Bahamas. The camp will also feature a game against the Bahamas Senior National Team on Wednesday, Aug. 6, at the Thompson A. Robinson National Stadium.

Additional players might be added pending the approved release from their clubs. (Note: Alonso Hernandez's release from his club team came after Friday's original announcement.)

This camp is part of the USA’s continuing effort to focus early on the qualification process for the 2016 Summer Olympics taking place in Rio de Janeiro. In April, the USA started this phase in earnest with an Under-21 MNT camp at U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center.

“The chance to get this group of players together and get ahead of the curve in preparation for Olympic Qualifying in two years’ time is huge,” said U.S. Soccer Technical Director Jurgen Klinsmann. “We began with the U-21 camp in April, and now it’s critical that we have as many camps and games as possible so we can build a deep pool of talent that can qualify for Brazil. The Olympics are an important opportunity for young players, and we have to capitalize on it. We also want to give a big thanks to the Bahamas Football Association for hosting us.”

U.S. Men’s National Team staff assistant coaches Tab Ramos and Andi Herzog and goalkeeper coach Chris Woods, as well as U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team head coach Javier Perez, are overseeing the camp.

The roster features nine players that Ramos coached at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey: goalkeepers Cody Cropper and Zack Steffen, defenders Juan Pablo Ocegueda and Oscar Sorto, midfielders Luis Gil and Benji Joya and forwards Daniel Cuevas, Alonso Hernandez and Victor Pineda.

Leon midfielder Dennis Flores and San Jose Earthquakes defender Ramon Martin del Campo are participating in their first U.S. Soccer Youth National Team camp.

Thirteen players have previous ties to U.S. Soccer’s Development Academy.

In the U-21 MNT camp earlier this year, Joya scored two goals, including a game-winner in second-half stoppage time, to lead the USA to a 2-1 victory against Tijuana on April 23. Nine players on the current U-23 roster were part of that U-21 camp: Cuevas, Christian Dean, Gil, Marlon Hairston, Joya, Jordan Morris, Ocegueda, Pineda, Sorto,

Referees Complete Productive Stretch at NTC Invitational and Academy Championships

U.S. Soccer referees converged on the National Training Center in Carson, California, in mid-July for two highly competitive events: the 2014 NTC Invitational and the 2013-14 Development Academy Championships.

The National Training Center Invitational was a four-team event over a five-day stretch (July 14-18) that featured the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team, which went on to win the tournament, runner-up Australia, Costa Rica and Bermuda.

In conjunction with this event was the 2013-14 Development Academy Championships, which included four semifinal games (two at both the U-15/16 and U-17/18 age groups) on July 17 and two championship matches on July 19 that resulted in the LA Galaxy winning at the U-15/16s and New Jersey-based Players Development Academy earning the U-17/18 national crown.

Naturally, having the opportunity to officiate high-profile internationally- and nationally-based matches proved to be a valuable platform for the referees on hand at the NTC and StubHub Center.

“The NTC Invitational and Academy Championships served as a great environment and experience for some of the best up-and-coming referees,” said Herb Silva, U.S. Soccer Director of Referee Identification and Training. “Along with the matches themselves, those went hand-in-hand with the itinerary on site, where we covered everything from positioning and foul identification, to evaluation, to player and game management and many other instructional elements.”

With the events overlapping at U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center fields and StubHub Center, referee trainings were combined into one group. National assessments and video breakdown occurred for all games and the group as a whole reviewed their performances.

The base of officials included four referees and five assistant referees working the U-20 matches, and they were chosen based on their exceptional performances at various 2014 identification events. The officials who worked the Academy Championships included eight referees and eight assistant referees. They were selected based on their performances at the U-15/16 and U-17/18 Academy Playoffs and the U-13/14 Academy Showcase, both of which took place in June at Grand Park in Westfield, Indiana.

U.S. Soccer’s technical staff included Silva, Rick Eddy, Sandy Hunt, Craig Lowry, Joe Machnik, George Noujaim and Don Wilbur.

USASA National Cup, US Youth Soccer National Championships Provide Referee Corps with Tools to Grow

The busy summer slate of soccer recently included a nearly 100-referee corps working at the US Youth Soccer National Championships from July 20-28 in Germantown, Maryland, and another group of officials participating in the US Adult Soccer National Cup Finals from July 25-27 in Sandy, Utah.

The US Youth Soccer National Championships showcased 96 of the country’s top referees at the youth level. Just like teams who compete at the state and regional levels, referees compete for one of the coveted spots to officiate at the National Championships. Once there, referees’ performances are factored into the assignment for one of the 14 championship matches among the various age groups.

“The event serves as a great stepping stone for many referees who are preparing to upgrade to National Referees or National Candidates,” said Jonathan Meersman, Region II Referee Director. “Many of the games are assessed or observed by mentors or members of the US Youth Soccer Referee Committee, and the feedback is used to help in the championship game assignment process.”

This year, there were two returners from 2013 who successfully completed the requirements to upgrade to National Referee for 2014. There were also five National Candidates who officiated at the event.

The U.S. Soccer support staff at the US Youth Soccer National Championships included Holly Hollingsworth, Sandy Hunt, David McKee, Kermit Quisenberry, Bryan Roslund, Don Torrenti and Don Wilbur.

At the USASA Men’s National Cup, the tournament has three divisions of competition – Amateur, Open and Over-30. In the Open division, regional champions advance to the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

Two officials from each region were selected by a USASA regional committee based on their regional performances. Assistant referees were selected by U.S. Soccer based on chosen based on their exceptional performances at various 2014 identification events.

“The technical support provided in this event was outstanding,” USASA Referee Chair Angelo Bratsis said. “Everyone worked hard and the officials showed the tools they need to get to the next level. The field exercises and classroom seasons built camaraderie and support. The confidence level of the referees and the skilled ARs allow for everyone to succeed in that setting.”

“We enjoy the continuous support of U.S. Soccer at USASA events, and the Academy events have also given us the support needed to make this the high-quality event it always strives to be,” USASA President John Motta said.

U-17 MNT Blanks Faroe Islands 4-0 at Open Nordic Tournament

KOLDING, Denmark (July 31, 2014) – The U.S. Under-17 Men’s National Team defeated the Faroe Islands 4-0 in its third match of the 2014 Open Nordic Tournament at Mosevej Stadium. McKinze Gaines scored two goals while Kai Koreniuk and Eric Matzelevich also provided a goal apiece for the USA.

With the victory, the U.S. U-17 MNT moves on to the tournament’s fifth-place game against Finland on Saturday, Aug. 2.

After dropping its first two games of the Open Nordic Tournament, the U.S. offense found its groove with three goals in the first 21 minutes. Koreniuk’s fourth-minute goal would prove to be the game-winner, and Gaines followed that up with a first-half brace, scoring in the 14th and 21st minutes.

With the match out of reach for Faroe Islands, Matzelevich capped off the scoring with the game’s final goal in the 82nd minute.

The U.S. U-17 MNT has a split squad competing at two different international tournaments. With one group competing in Saturday’s Open Nordic Tournament placement game, the other half of the U-17 squad opens the third Copa Mexico de Naciones against China PR later that day in Mexico City.

U.S. U-17 MNT Loses 4-1 to Norway at Open Nordic Tournament

NORRE AABY, Denmark (July 29, 2014) – The U.S. U-17 MNT dropped its second game of the Open Nordic Cup, a 4-1 loss to Norway Tuesday at Norre Aaby Stadium.

After giving up two first-half goals for the second consecutive game, USA’s Elijah Rice scored to cut the deficit to 2-1 early in the second half and breathe life into the U.S. attack. Norway put the game away with goals in the 60th and 79th minutes for the final margin. Norway’s John Saeter recorded a brace, opening the scoring in the ninth minute with a goal and striking again in the 79th minute to put the game further out of reach.

With the loss, the U.S. falls to 0-2-0 in the Open Nordic Tournament, having lost 2-0 to Denmark in the opener. The U.S. U-17s were previously unbeaten in 2014 and are currently playing with a split squad as they are also competing in the Copa Mexico de Naciones. The U.S. opens play in Mexico City against China PR on Aug. 2.

Next up for the U.S. in the Open Nordic Tournament is a match against the Faroe Islands on Thursday, July 31 before wrapping finishing on August 2 with a placement game.
