U-18 MNT Wins Three International Friendlies in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES (March 17, 2016) – The U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team swept three international friendlies in Argentina, defeating San Lorenzo (2-1), Racing Club (3-2) and Uruguay (2-1) during its March training camp.

In the first match against San Lorenzo, the USA was quick to get on the board, notching a goal within the first minute. U.S. forward Nick Taitague took a corner kick, sending the ball across the box where it was met by defender Angel Uribe’s head for the early tally. In the 42nd minute, Taitague drew a penalty kick and stepped up to slot the ball past the San Lorenzo goalkeeper for the winning goal.

The U.S. dominated early in its second match against Racing Club a s well. USA forward Griffin Dorsey scored in just the seventh minute from a pass by Jonathan Gonzalez. Minutes later, Taitague converted a penalty. In the 48th minute, the USA’s Aristole Zarris sent a cross toward goal, connecting with Justin Rennicks to collect the game-winning goal.

In the final matchup in Argentina, the U-18s took on Uruguay’s U-18 MNT. The U.S. came out of halftime down 0-1 until Daniel Jones sprinted down the left flank and crossed the ball through the box. Dorsey collected the ball low and equalized in the 48th minute. The game-winning goal came in the 60th minute when U.S. forward Lucas de Rosario picked up a deflection off the Uruguay goalkeeper, and put the ball in the back of the net to finish the game.

The U-18 MNT will next hold training camp from April 23-30 at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California.

Mark Carr Names U.S. Roster for 2018 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup

CHICAGO (Oct. 22, 2018) – U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team head coach Mark Carr has named the 21 players who will represent the United States at the 2018 FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup to be held in Uruguay from Nov. 13 – Dec. 1.

The USA kicks off a challenging Group C on Wed., Nov. 14 against Cameroon (1 p.m. ET), faces Korea DPR on Sat., Nov. 17 (1 p.m. ET) and wraps up the group stage against Germany on Wed., Nov. 21 (4 p.m. ET). All of the USA’s matches will be broadcast on FS2.

Carr named the final roster after the conclusion of the U.S. Soccer U-17 Women’s Invitational in Lakewood Ranch, Fla., where the USA finished off its World Cup prep with matches against Colombia, Mexico and England. Since the start of the cycle in April 2016, the U-17s have tested themselves against 15 different National Teams over the course of 17 training camps/events and have compiled a 23-2-6 international record.

Players born on or after Jan. 1, 2001 are eligible for the World Cup. The U.S. roster is made up of 15 players born in 2001, five born in 2002 and one born in 2003.

Sixteen players participated in the 2017-18 inaugural season of the U.S. Soccer Girls’ Development Academy, with seven picking up Academy Conference Best XI honors last year.

“In the international game, you've got to have different individual skill sets that will ultimately all put their talents into the team,” Carr said. “On this roster, you've got high levels of soccer intelligence, you've got creativity, you've got pure athleticism, you've got technicians that can control the game and run the game. And as with any American team, it's full of spirit, competitiveness, desire to improve and it’s ultimately designed to win at the highest levels.”

Fame is too small a word. It does no justice to what happens here in the National Soccer Hall of Fame, or what’s enshrined in its new walls. The grand opening, on Oct. 21 with the induction of the Class of 2018, was more than fireworks and high-tech wizardry. It was more than the red blazers and speeches. It was surely more than fame.
