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.

WNT Behind the Lens: 2017 in Photos

Hello everyone,

My name is Brad Smith and I am the official photographer of the U.S. Women's National Team. I joined the WNT as a full-time staff member back in March of 2015 and it has been an incredible experience so far. For this year in review, the choices I made are subjective and personal. They include on-and-off the field moments, and capture the emotions and experiences that players and fans alike navigated in 2017. Some are also just cool photos, but I'm also probably a little bit biased. I hope you enjoy my picks, and I’ll see you all (more than likely through my lenses) in 2018!

"Does it rain much in Los Angeles? No, but the team seemed to have no trouble finding it there last January Camp."

"I’m always on the lookout for something different. Gym sessions are just that. 
Then when you add some soft window light to a shadow boxing Ashlyn Harris, you get something special."


March 2017

"When you practice at a college campus, word travels fast. During training at the University of Maryland,
a deserted pitch soon became a surrounded stadium." 


April 2017

"Winners on the field, winners off the field. While the team was in Frisco, we made a special visit to a local hospital. 
Rose Lavelle even got a dance lesson."

"One of my favorite action photos of the year because it’s such a story-telling image. Not only does it have fantastic action,
