U-17 WNT Falls to China PR 5-4 in Wild Finale at U-16 Tournament in China

WEIFANG, China (July 16, 2017) – The U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team played a wild back-and-forth finale in the U-16 CFA International Women’s Youth Football Tournament, eventually falling to host China PR on a goal in the final minute of regulation time.

Jordan Canniff scored twice for the USA while Katie Wiesner and Ainsley Ahmadian scored single goals in a match that saw the USA fall behind three times in the first half, only to tie the game three times and head into the break knotted at 3-3. The USA then took a 4-3 lead on a Canniff goal in the 59th minute, but China equalized in the 63rd and got a game-winner in the 90th through Linyan Zhang. China attacker Qian Yang proved hard to contain, scoring three of her team’s five goals.

The USA lost captain Kennedy Wesley very early in the game when she injured her leg after a hard tackle and had to be substituted in the 4th minute. Wiesner took over the armband after Wesley’s substitution.

The USA went into the game needing a win to finish first in the four-team tournament, but with the loss, China finished first, the USA was second, Japan was third and Canada finishes fourth.

The USA defeated Japan 2-0 on July 12 and tied Canada 1-1 on July 14. Japan beat Canada, 3-1, in today’s other match.

"Our trip to China provided us with many challenges in regards to travel and playing abroad, but also on the field, where we faced three different but talented opponents,” said U.S. head coach Mark Carr. “We had a mixed bag of results, but more importantly, I was proud of all the players, how we played and how we improved during the tournament. This experience will only help us move forward in our development journey. We know we have work to do and I know the players will focus improving themselves with their clubs ahead of our August camp."

At this point in the World Cup cycle, all four teams in the tournament were basically U-16 teams with players born in 2001 and 2002. All the matches were played at the Weifang Olympic Sports Center Stadium in Weifang, which is located on the coast of northeast China at the base of the Shandong Peninsula.

This group of U.S. players is in the middle of the first year of a two-year cycle in which they will attempt to qualify for the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup that will be staged in Uruguay.
