U-18 and U-19 MNTs Wrap Up Combined Training Camp with Friendlies vs. Florida Clubs

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Nov. 13, 2016) – The U.S. Under-18 and Under-19 Men’s National Teams participated in a joint domestic training camp from Nov. 5-14, where the teams played an intra-squad match on Nov. 9 and each team faced a USL Premier Development League team on Nov. 13 at Lockhart Stadium.

The intra-squad face off was an exciting one, with Djordje Mihailovic giving the U-19s the lead in the 31st minute. However, Justin Rennicks scored for the U-18s in the 44th minute, leveling the score right before halftime. The second half kicked off and it only took Jake Morris five minutes to flip the score and put the U-18s in the lead, ultimately securing a 2-1 scrimmage victory for the younger U.S. MNT.

The U-19 MNT then played Miami FC on Nov. 13 at Lockhart Stadium. The match kicked off at 1 p.m. ET and the U-19s had no trouble taking care of business. The USA was awarded a penalty kick in the 20th minute, which Brandon Vazquez slotted in the back of the net. Tyler Adams connected with Pierre da Silva just two minutes later, giving the U-19s a 2-0 lead at half.

The second half was also dominated by the U-19 squad, with Nick Taitague, Isaiah Young, and Nelson Hunsinger adding tallies to the count in the 76th, 83rd, and 87th minutes, respectively. Brady Scott and Will Pulisic shared a shutout while the USA secured a 5-0 victory.

Immediately after, the U-18 MNT took the field to face South Florida Surf. This match was a lot more balanced, but the USA’s Jose Carranza opened up the scoring in the 29th minute. The second half kicked off and the Surf flipped the scoreline in a five-minute timespan, scoring in the 55th and 60th minutes. Jose Carranza then recorded his second goal of the night, finding the back of the net in the 84th minute to close out the game with a 2-2 draw.

This camp successfully wrapped up the 2016 scheduled programming for both U-18 and U-19 MNTs.
