The New 99ers

Fourteen-year-olds Civana Kuhlmann and Frankie Tagliaferri are living the dream as the two youngest players on the U.S. U-17 Women's National Team. On Oct. 31, 2013, against Trinidad & Tobago, Kuhlmann became the youngest player to score in international completion for the U.S. U-17s when she tallied in the first game of Women's World Cup qualifying in Montego Bay, Jamaica. And even though they were born in the same year the USA won the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup, they have an impressive awareness and appreciation of the players that paved the way for the experience they are relishing in 2013.
