U.S. U-20 MNT Sweeps Honduras in San Pedro Sula

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras (Dec. 21, 2014) – The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team repeated its performance against Honduras, earning another 2-1 victory against the host country at Estadio Morazan. The USA defeated Honduras by the same score line just three days earlier in the final international match preparation for the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship in early January.

Romain Gall scored a first-half goal and Lynden Gooch supplied the game-winner in the second half for the U-20 MNT, which is 6-1-2 in international competition and 12-2-2 overall this year.

Gall leads the U-20s with four goals in 2014. Gooch tallied his first-career goal with this age group.

More information from Sunday’s match will be available on ussoccer.com.

U.S. U-20 MNT Tops Honduras 2-1 in First of Two-Game Set

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras (Dec. 18, 2014) – The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team defeated host Honduras 2-1 at Estadio Morazan in the first of two international friendlies in preparation for the upcoming 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship.

Romain Gall and Tommy Thompson each scored a goal. For Gall, it is his third of the year, tying him with Andrija Novakovich and Zach Pfeffer for the team lead in international play in 2014. Thompson scored his second goal of the year.

USA defender Shaquell Moore set up both USA tallies, crossing the ball in from the right side on both occasions. Moore connected with Gall in the 62nd minute as Gall slotted the ball in past Honduras goalkeeper Roberto Diaz for the 1-0 lead. Then in the 70th minute, Moore found Thompson, who headed the ball into the upper right corner of the frame.

The two-goal cushion proved vital as Honduras defender Kevin Alvarez cut the U.S. lead to one goal in the 88th minute.

The U-20 MNT moves to 5-1-2 in international play and 11-2-2 overall this year.

The USA and Honduras meet once more on Sunday, Dec. 21, at Estadio Morazan. This will mark the U-20 MNT’s final international game before the U-20 World Cup qualifying, with the USA facing Guatemala in Group A play on Friday, Jan. 9.

U-20 MNT Gathers for Final Foreign Camp Before Qualifying

The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team has reached its final stretch of international friendlies before the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship. Head coach Tab Ramos and his U-20 side is less than a month away from kicking off the qualifying tournament in Jamaica.

The USA originally was set to hold its final international camp in Jamaica. But with both countries in the same qualifying group, Ramos said it made most sense to find a different locale. Honduras fit the bill for the U-20 MNT’s preparation purposes.

“When we drew Jamaica in our group, we didn’t want to be playing Jamaica right before the qualifiers and then play them at qualifiers, as well,” Ramos said. “That’s not good for either team. So we decided to pull out of that match. … I think going to Honduras, we’re taking the players to a very difficult environment in San Pedro Sula, which we all know from World Cup Qualifying with our senior team. I think this is a good place for us to prepare our team and make them mentally ready to confront the qualifying in January.”

The December camp will feature two games against Honduras and will be the U-20 MNT’s final international games of 2014. The USA last played international competition in Marbella, Spain, where the team earned two victories in three games. The U-20s defeated Russia’s U-21 national team 4-3 on Nov. 12, followed by a 1-0 win against the Republic of Ireland on Nov. 15 and a 1-0 loss against Canada on Nov. 18.

Tab Ramos Names U-20 MNT Roster for Dec. 15-22 Camp in Honduras

CHICAGO (Dec. 12, 2014) – U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team head coach Tab Ramos has named a roster for the USA’s final foreign training camp of the year from Dec. 15-22 in Honduras.

Nineteen players are headed to the camp, which will feature matches against the Honduras U-20s on Dec. 18 and 21 at Morazan Stadium in San Pedro Sula. The Dec. 18 game kicks off at 4 p.m. local (5 p.m. ET) and the Dec. 21 match at 2 p.m. local (3 p.m. ET). (Note: Multiple changes have been made to the roster since the initial release.)

This is the U-20 MNT’s final foreign training camp of the year before turning its focus on the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship starting Jan. 9 in Jamaica.

The USA roster for Honduras features nine of the 10 players who took part in the U-20 MNT’s recent domestic fitness camp from Dec. 3-10 in Bradenton, Florida.

The group also includes midfielders Russell Canouse and Romain Gall, who are the only two players to feature in all seven of the U-20 MNT’s international matches this year. Canouse leads the team with six starts and Gall is tied for third on the U-20s with two goals, both of which came during the USA’s 4-3 victory against Russia’s U-21 national team on Nov. 12 in Marbella, Spain.

Goalkeeper Zack Steffen, who officially signed with Bundesliga club SC Freiburg on Friday, has posted shutouts in both of his matches this year – a 4-0 win against Bermuda and a scoreless draw against Australia en route to the NTC Invitational title.

The USA roster includes 17 players with ties to the Development Academy.

The U-20 MNT is 4-1-2 in international competition and 10-2-2 overall in 2014.

Following the Honduras camp, the U-20s will hold a pre-World Cup qualifying camp in Florida before departing for the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship. The USA opens Group A play at the CONCACAF U-20 Championship against Guatemala on Jan. 9 at Independence Park in Kingston, Jamaica (5:30 p.m. ET kickoff).

Tab Ramos Calls in 10 Players for U.S. U-20 MNT Fitness Camp

CHICAGO (Dec. 2, 2014) – The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team will meet for a domestic fitness camp from Dec. 3-10 in Bradenton, Florida.

The group features 10 field players, most who play for Major League Soccer clubs. With a little more than a month before the start of the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship in Jamaica, head coach Tab Ramos sees this stretch as a valuable time to keep his side playing at a high rate with the MLS season nearly in the books.

“It’s finally getting down to that time where we have to focus on the final stages of World Cup qualifying,” Ramos said. “At this point, because the MLS season has ended for a lot of teams, we needed to bring the players who are not continuing to train with their teams and do a fitness camp. Some of the players have been off, and we want to have them catch up a little bit with the guys that we have in Europe.

Following the fitness camp, the U.S. U-20 MNT will conduct a foreign training camp in Honduras later this month starting on Dec. 15, followed by a domestic preparation camp before the CONCACAF U-20 Championship.

Roster by Position:
GOALKEEPERS (0): None
DEFENDERS (4): Conor Donovan (North Carolina State; Fuquay Varina, N.C.), Matthew Miazga (New York Red Bulls; Clifton, N.J.), Shaquell Moore (Unattached; Powder Springs, Ga.), Tyler Turner (Orlando City SC; West Haven, Conn.)
MIDFIELDERS (3): Kellyn Acosta (FC Dallas; Plano, Texas), Marco Delgado (Toronto FC; Glendora, Calif.), Romain Gall (Columbus Crew; Herndon, Va.)
FORWARDS (3): Bradford Jamieson IV (LA Galaxy; Los Angeles, Calif.), Zach Pfeffer (Philadelphia Union; Dresher, Pa.), Tommy Thompson (San Jose Earthquakes; Loomis, Calif.)

U-20 MNT Falls 1-0 to Canada in Marbella Tournament Finale

MARBELLA, Spain (Nov. 18, 2014) – The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team dropped a 1-0 decision to Canada’s U-20s at the 2014 Marbella U-21 International National Teams Football Tournament at the Marbella Football Center.

Canada’s Carreiro scored a fifth-minute goal and that held up the rest of the way.

One of the USA’s best scoring chances came in the 42nd minute, when Dembakwi Yomba’s header struck the crossbar after he was set up by Russell Canouse. Yomba had scored once in each of the previous two matches at the Marbella Tournament.

The U-20 MNT went 2-1-0 at the event, posting a 4-3 victory against Russia’s U-21s on Nov. 12 and a 1-0 win against the Republic of Ireland on Nov. 15.

The tournament served as the USA’s continued preparation for the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship, which runs Jan. 9-24 in Jamaica. The USA opens the tournament against Guatemala on Jan. 9 and looks to qualify for the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.

U.S. U-20 MNT Wins Thriller Over Russia U-21s in Marbella Tournament

MARBELLA, Spain (Nov. 12, 2014) – U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team midfielder Romain Gall scored two goals, including a shorthanded, game-winning penalty kick in second-half stoppage time, and the USA defeated Russia’s U-21 national team 4-3 in the opener of the 2014 Marbella U-21 International National Teams Football Tournament at the Marbella Football Center.

For the final 10 minutes, the USA played down a man because of a second yellow card issued to Emerson Hyndman. Nevertheless, the U.S. stepped up in the moment with the score tied at 3-3. Second-half sub Tommy Thompson took a shot in the box that deflected off of a Russia defender’s hand, and the U.S. was awarded the PK.

Gall, making his fourth international appearance with the U-20s, converted the winner in the dying moments of the match. The game featured four lead changes, with both teams having the upper hand on two occasions.

After Russia’s Vyacheslav Karavayev put his side on the score sheet in the 13th minute, the USA responded with an equalizer in the 19th minute. Joel Soñora had the initial attack and shot, which was saved, but Gall was there for the rebound to tie the score at 1-1.

Andrija Novakovich gave the U.S. U-20 MNT a 2-1 lead just before halftime, a floating 45th-minute shot that was placed toward the upper left of the frame. Junior Flores had the assist on that play. It was Novakovich’s third international goal with the U-20s this year, tying him for the team lead with Zach Pfeffer.

Russia responded with back-to-back goals from Aleksandr Morgunov and Arshak Koryan in the 55th and 71st minutes, respectively. The latter, USA goalkeeper Ethan Horvath saved Koryan’s penalty kick, but Koryan was able to follow up to give his side a 3-2 lead.

In the 77th minute, U.S. second-half sub Dembakwi Yomba made his U-20 international debut and converted a penalty kick to tie the score at 3-3.

Gall would later follow with the winner, and the U.S. U-20 MNT improved to 3-0-2 in international play this year (9-1-2 overall).

Next up, the USA resumes Marbella Tournament play on Saturday against the Republic of Ireland (9 a.m. ET kickoff) at San Pedro Stadium.

U.S. U-20 MNT Head Coach Tab Ramos Names Roster for International Trip to Spain

CHICAGO (Nov. 7, 2014) – U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team head coach Tab Ramos has named a 20-player roster that will compete in three matches at the U-21 International National Teams Football Tournament in Marbella, Spain. (Note: roster changes have been made since the initial release)

The USA opens with a match against Russia’s U-21 national team on Wednesday, Nov. 12, at the Marbella Football Center. The U.S. then takes on the Republic of Ireland’s U-20s on Nov. 15 at San Pedro Stadium and Canada’s U-20 national team on Nov. 18 at the Marbella Football Center.

The majority of this roster has featured for the U-20 MNT over the past two years, with 17 players being brought into previous camps.

Fulham midfielder Emerson Hyndman joins a U-20 camp for the first time this year. He made his U.S. Men’s National Team debut on Sept. 3, with head coach Jurgen Klinsmann calling him in for the final 24 minutes of the USA’s 1-0 victory against the Czech Republic in Prague. Hyndman also played for the U.S. U-23 MNT during its Oct. 14 match against Brazil’s U-23s.

Three players have earned their first U-20 call-ups in Tottenham’s Cameron Carter-Vickers, Orlando City’s Tommy Redding and Atlético Madrid’s Dembakwi Yomba. Redding joins his Orlando City teammate Tyler Turner, who was called into camp earlier this year but is still in search of his first international cap at this level. Carter-Vickers recently got the start for the U.S. U-23 MNT against Brazil.

FC Dallas midfielder Kellyn Acosta was a member of the USA’s 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup team in Turkey.

The roster also features 18 players who have previous ties to U.S. Soccer’s Development Academy.

The U-20s have a 2-0-2 international record this year, highlighted by their championship run at the 2014 National Training Center Invitational in July. Overall, the U-20 MNT is 8-1-2, with a runner-up showing at the 2014 Dallas Cup in April. TSG 1899 Hoffenheim midfielder Russell Canouse and Tijuana defender John Requejo are the only two players on this U-20 roster who have featured in all four international games this year.

This is the USA’s second-to-last international trip of the year. The U-20s will hold a foreign training camp in mid-December in Jamaica, the location of the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship. The U.S. will then take part in a domestic camp in late December and early January before the Jan. 9-24 World Cup qualifying tournament in Kingston and Montego Bay, Jamaica.

The U.S. U-20 MNT was drawn with Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Aruba, Panama and Guatemala in Group A for the CONCACAF U-20 Championship. The USA opens the tournament against Guatemala on Jan. 9 and looks to qualify for the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.
