U-19 WNT Falls to Czech Republic U-19 WNT 2-1 in Prague

PRAGUE, Czech Republic (June 10, 2017) – The U.S. Under-19 Women’s National Team lost 2-1 to the Czech Republic U-19 WNT in the first of two matches during a training camp in Prague.

The USA will play the full Czech Republic Women’s National Team on June 13. The U.S. U-19s were going to play the senior team on June 10 and the U-19s on June 13, but the matches were flip-flopped after the USA arrived in Prague.

All the goals came in the first half, the first off a first-time volley by Andrea Staskova from a corner kick in just the 8th minute. The Czechs doubled the score in the 38th minute through Nela Krejcirova before the USA pulled a goal back two minutes later.

It was an own goal as Emina Ekic put pressure on a back pass to the goalkeeper and she deflected it into her own net. The USA was playing against a team of players who for the most part play in the Czech Republic women’s semi-professional league.
