U-20 WNT Falls 2-0 to Brazil to Finish NTC Invitational in Los Angeles

CARSON, Calif. (Sept. 18, 2016) – The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team fell to Brazil by a 2-0 score to finish the 2016 U-20 Women’s NTC Invitational. England won the tournament with two wins and a tie for seven points (after tying the Korea Republic 0-0 on the final match day) while Brazil finished second with a win, a tie and a loss (4 points). South Korea finished third with three points after three ties and the USA finished fourth with two losses and a tie and one point.

The USA allowed just three goals over the three games, including a second to Brazil in second half stoppage time, but struggled in the attacking third during the tournament. Brazil took the lead through Gabi da Silva as she knocked home a loose ball during a goal mouth scramble in the 13th minute. Brazil added the clincher in the 94th minute as Fernada Licen, who had just entered the game, ran onto a bounce pass over the U.S. back line and lifted the ball over onrushing U.S. goalkeeper Rose Chandler and into the open net.

Mallory Pugh, a member of the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team who became the youngest American soccer player to score in an Olympic Games, started but played only the first 30 minutes as she continues to recover from from an ankle injury suffered in the Olympics. The match was quite physical with the teams combining for 33 fouls and Brazil being shown four yellow cards.

The USA will have one more training camp before leaving for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup which will be held in Papua New Guinea from November 13-Dec. 3. The USA will come together in Lakewood Ranch, Fla., for a camp that will include two matches against Venezuela.

In PNG, the USA is in Group C with France, Ghana and New Zealand.
