The U.S. Under-14 Boys’ National Team recently convened for a domestic training camp from Oct. 11-19 at U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center in Carson, California.
As this was the first U-14 camp of a new cycle, it was an opportune moment for Youth National Team staff to see the extensive talent from the 48-player group through a variety of training and game settings. On Oct. 15, the U-14s held a pair of intrasquad games, the first of which included two 30-minute halves and the second game included two 35-minute halves.
Goal scoring highlights from the day:
In the opening match, Nomads forward Jacob Silva crossed the ball from the right, and after a deflection, Met Oval midfielder Veljko Petkovic unleashed a low, long-range shot just inside the right side of the frame.
