WHANGAREI, Nueva Zelanda (30 de mayo, 2015) - La Selección Masculina Sub-20 de EE.UU. abrió su paso por el Grupo A de la Copa Mundial Sub-20 de la FIFA 2015 con una victoria de 2-1 contra Myanmar en el Northland Events Center en Whangarei.

Maki Tall puso a EE.UU. en el marcador en el primer tiempo al igualar el partido después de un gol temprano de Myanmar. El capitán de EE.UU. Emerson Hyndman lo siguió con el gol de la victoria en el segundo tiempo para garantizar los tres puntos en su primer partido del torneo.

Resumen de Goles:

MYA - Yan Naing Oo, minuto 9: Después de un tiro libre de Myanmar, el balón entró al área y varios jugadores de ambos equipos se abalanzarón sobre él. El portero de EE.UU. Zack Steffen dejó su línea para intentar asegurar el balón, sin embargo no lo pudo controlar, dejando la red abierta. Naing OO aprovechó para encontrar el balón y picarlo con la punta del pie adentro del primer poste para abrir el marcador. USA 0, MYA 1

USA - Maki Tall (Cameron Carter-Vickers), minuto 17: Después de que Myanmar desviara una pelota fuera del terreno de juego, el capitán de EE.UU. Emerson Hyndman tomó el tiro de esquina para Estados Unidos. Hyndman envió un balón al centro del área, en donde Cameron Carter-Vickers la tocó con la cabeza lo suficiente para dirigirla al lado derecho del área. Maki Tall estaba en la posición perfecta por el lado derecho y recibió el pase de Carter-Vickers, enviando un disparo con la zurda a la esquina de la portería para igualar el marcador. USA 1, MYA 1

USA - Emerson Hyndman (Rubio Rubín), minuto 56: Rubio Rubín obtuvo posesión del balón en el medio campo y se lo llevó al borde del área en donde encontró a Emerson Hyndman. Rubín envió un pase a la esquina derecha del área grande en donde Hyndman se había abierto espacio. Hyndman recibió el balón, se metió al área y no perdioó tiempo en colocar un disparo perfecto al segundo poste para darle la ventaja a EE.UU. USA 2, MYA 1 (FINAL)

Atajadas Claves y Paradas Defensivas:

MYA - Myo Min Latt, minuto 30: Emerson Hyndman se perfiló para tomar un tiro libre de 18 metro de distancia afuera del lado derecho del área grande. Su disparo rebotó en la pared de jugadores y le cayó de nuevo a los pies. Emerson tomó su propio remate y mandó un disparo al centro de la portería, en donde Myo Min Latt reaccionó con rapidez y protegió el balón antes de que pudiera causar más peligro.

MYA - Myo Min Latt, minuto 35: De nuevo, Emerson Hyndman tomó un tiro libre. Su balón voló al otro lado del campo al lado izquierdo de la pared en donde esperaba Matt Miazga. El estadounidense brincó y bajó el balón con la cabeza para Rubio Rubín quien intentó voltear y disparar con la zurda. El intento de Rubín fue inutil ya que Latt estaba alerta y salió para desviar el balón con los puños.

U-20 MNT Kicks Off 2015 U-20 WORLD CUP with 2-1 Win Over Myanmar

WHANGAREI, New Zealand (May 30, 2015) – The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team opened up Group A play of the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup with a 2-1 win over Myanmar at the Northland Events Center in Whangarei.

Maki Tall got the USA on the board in the first half after an early Myanmar lead, and U.S. captain Emerson Hyndman followed with the game-winner in the second half to guarantee the USA three points in its opening game of the tournament.

With the win, the USA (1-0-0) sits atop Group A standings with three points, followed by New Zealand (0-0-1) and Ukraine (0-0-1), who tied 0-0 earlier in the day. Myanmar (0-1-0) is last in the group with zero points following the loss.

With his goal in the first half, Tall now has three goals for the USA in 2015, a leading mark among players on the World Cup roster.

Next, the U.S. continues Group A play against host New Zealand on June 2 at QBE Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand. Kickoff is set for 3 a.m. ET on FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports Go and NBC Universo. Fans can also follow the action on Twitter @ussoccer_ynt and @ussoccer_esp.

Goal Scoring Rundown:
MYA – Yan Naing Oo, 9th minute: Following a corner kick from Myanmar, the ball went into the box and various players from both teams scrambled to get ahold of it. U.S. goalkeeper Zack Steffen came out of the net to try and secure the ball; however, he was unable to control it, leaving an empty net for Naing Oo to find the ball and tap it inside the near post for the first score of the match. USA 0, MYA 1  

USA – Maki Tall (Cameron Carter-Vickers), 17th minute: After Myanmar deflected a U.S. ball out of the playing field, U.S. captain Emerson Hyndman stepped up to take the corner for the USA. Hyndman sent a high, curved ball to the middle of the box, where Cameron Carter-Vickers got a light touch to redirect it to the right side of the box. Maki Tall was in position on the right to coral the ball and sent a right-footed kick to the back left corner of the goal to even up the game. USA 1, MYA 1

USA – Emerson Hyndman (Rubio Rubin), 56th minute: Rubio Rubin gained possession of the ball in the midfield and ran with it up to the outside of the Myanmar box where he found Emerson Hyndman making a long follow up run. Rubin sent a pass to the right side of the box where Hyndman had positioned himself. Hyndman got inside the box and wasted no time sending a perfect shot from about 12 yards out to the far post to put the USA ahead for good. USA 2, MYA 1 (FINAL)

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
MYA – Myo Min Latt, 30th minute: Emerson Hyndman set up to take a free kick from about 20 yards out on the right side of the box. His shot went straight to the barrier and rebounded right back at him. With his second effort, Hyndman sent a bullet right to the center of the net, where Myo Min Latt reacted quickly and jumped on the ball before Hyndman’s perfectly directed ball could cause any damage.

MYA – Myo Min Latt, 35th minute: Once again, Emerson Hyndman set up a set-piece play with another free kick. His ball flew over to the opposite side of the field onto the left side of the barrier where Matt Miazga awaited. The lanky defender jumped and downed the ball with a header towards Rubio Rubin who tried to turn and kick it with his left foot. Rubin’s attempt however was futile as Latt was alert and came out to punch the ball out of play.

MYA – Myo Min Latt, 50th minute: A pass from the left side by Jordan Allen led to chaos in the box as the ball seemed to disappear from everyone’s sights and slowly began rolling towards the back of the net. Hyndman finally caught a glimpse of it and attempted to give it a tap, however Latt saw it as well and covered it at the last second before it crossed the goal line.

USA – Shaquelle Moore, 74th minute: Despite giving up the early goal to Myanmar, the U.S. defense found its footing for the remainder of the match and made key plays throughout. After pushing for several minutes late in the game, Myanmar eventually got into U.S. territory and started threatening in the box. That’s when Moore made a key save while covering his player by heading a ball out of play that appeared to be headed straight to the net.

Additional Notes:

  • The USA and Myanmar faced each other for the first time in the nations’ histories.
  • Midfielder Emerson Hyndman wore the captain’s armband for only the second time. He made his debut as captain against Australia during a friendly on May 19.
  • Hyndman’s goal was only his second international goal with the U-20s. He last scored during the USA’s 8-0 win over Aruba on Jan. 14 at the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship in Jamaica.
  • Maki Tall has scored in three of the five career games he has played with the U-20 MNT.
  • The USA’s three substitutions of the game were: Gedion Zelalem for Joel Soñora, Tommy Thompson for Jordan Allen and Bradford Jamieson IV for Maki Tall, all coming in the second half.
  • The defense was anchored by Shaquell Moore, Matt Miazga, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Kellyn Acosta, who all played the entirety of the match.

#USWNT Hits up Good Morning America, Meets Ed Sheeran

2015 Toulon Tournament Quote Sheet: U.S. U-23 MNT 3, Netherlands 1

U-23 MNT head coach Andi Herzog
On conceding an early goal, but rebounding with a goal:
I think it was a little bit similar to what happened in the game with France. We gave up an easy goal but I think my team came back really well because our striking players are really fast and that’s our biggest strength. We were able to use it today and overall I thought it was a great team performance. The second half after the 60th minute the Netherlands did everything to come back into the game, so we were maybe a little too deep. We took a few plays and we were maybe waiting for a counter-break to bring, and Jordan Morris was in the right position, but we were not able to execute a final pass or maybe we would have had a chance to score the fourth goal. There was always danger because Netherlands were much better in the second half and it brought in some other players that had a little bit more quality than its starters today. It was a very important win for us today.”

On what the difference was today, versus the last game:
“Against France we nearly scored two own-goals in one minute so the team needed at least 30 minutes to shake it off. Today Netherlands scored an easy goal, but it’s important that you always create chances and that the team has confidence. We knew even against a good team like Netherlands we would be able to create chances if we stuck to our game plan. It was really good. The only thing I was hoping for was one better counter-break in the second half to score a fourth goal, and then it would have been even better for us.”

On moving onto the next game versus Costa Rica:
“First of all, a couple of players are really tired because they’ve now played two games in three days and we have to be smart for the third game to find the right balance, but right now we’re just happy and I have to give the team huge compliments. Today it was hot, it was a good opponent and it was a really good game. After the loss against France, I’ve been waiting for my team to show character and they went back to their strengths and I think it was a really good game for us.”

U-23 MNT midfielder Fatai Alashe
On the team’s resiliency:
That’s something we talked about after the last game. Obviously, what happened last game is not acceptable. We gave up an early goal and kind of lost our heads and it just got worse from there. So we were focused today, even if we went ahead, even if we gave up an early goal and things didn’t go our way, we’ve just got to stick together and stay tough and stick to the game plan. That’s what we did today and we were grateful to get a result.”

On the importance of the win for the stake of the U.S. in the tournament:
At this point it was a game we had to win. If we didn’t win we were likely going to be out. It was definitely a big win. Now we have a chance if we win out, to at least play in the third-place game if not the final depending on what happens with France. We knew that going in and we definitely wanted to play for something.”

U-23 MNT forward Jerome Kiesewetter
On his goal:
It was great to score. That’s just what strikers do and it was awesome. It’s just a good feeling.”

On the importance of the win:
We didn’t start well in the France game, but we showed that we are a good team and that we have spirit and that is what soccer’s about. We did well in this game; 3-1 against Netherlands, that’s a great result.”

On the resiliency of the team:
We showed that we have character. That we’ll keep fighting back. That we’re one team, and we have spirit, and that’s so important for us. We didn’t start well today. We gave up a goal in the first 10 minutes and we were down, but we showed that we can come back. We have a good team.”

On the next match against Costa Rica:
“We are very ready for the next game. We want to win this game, same as the game against Qatar, but we have to focus now on Costa Rica and do everything we have to win.”

U-23 MNT forward Alonso Hernandez
On his goal:
I think it was free kick and it bounced up, and Jordan [Morris] fought for it and he put it back to me and I scored. I thought it was a great opportunity for the team to as we moved to 2-1 and it was a great team effort.”

On how important the win is for the team:
It’s a great win. It’s a great opportunity for the team to keep moving forward and to continue to prepare for the Olympics and everything. We’re gaining confidence and we’re getting better and better, and that’s the important part of the win.”
