U.S. U-18 WNT Draws 0-0 With Hosts to Finish Trip to England

CHICAGO (Feb. 25, 2017) – The U.S. Under-18 Women’s National Team drew 0-0 with the hosts to finish its trip to England with a 2-0-1 record.

The USA also defeated England, 3-1, on Feb. 19 and downed Norway 5-0 on Feb. 21. Sophia Smith scored five goals over the two matches and Summer Yates had two. All the matches featured 40-minute halves.

This group of players is at the start of a two-year cycle as U-18s before transitioning to U-20s in 2019, and will form the core of the group that will eventually attempt to qualify for the 2020 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

The U-18 WNT will come together next for a domestic training camp in April.
