2015 Nike International Friendlies: U-17 MNT Falls To Brazil 3-0

LAKEWOOD RANCH, Florida (Dec. 6, 2015) – The U.S. had their chances, but never got things going as the side fell 3-0 to Brazil in the final match of the 2015 Nike International Friendlies Sunday night at Premier Sports Campus.

Brazil came out early in search of their first goal of the competition as Andrade worked well up the left before centering for Brenner Souza whose shot was well held by U.S. goalkeeper Chris Budnik.

The U.S. counted minutes later as Andrew Carleton played a lovely one-two combination with Josh Sargent which saw Carleton in on goal, before he placed his effort well over the Brazil goal.

Brazil had the next chance two minutes later when Marco Antonio’s free kick from the right was headed by Souza to the back post, but Budnik was there to keep it out with a diving stop.

The U.S. marched right back down the field in the 12th minute as forward Ayo Akinola settled a bouncing ball on the right and strolled past Brazilian defender Hiago before putting a shot across goal that trailed just wide of the left post.

Brazil would convert their first goal of the 2015 Nike International Friendlies when Antonio crossed from the right to find Souza again, before he cut back and unleashed a bullet into the top right corner in the 19th minute.

The visitors would double their lead three minutes later when Souza cut into the box on the right and picked out Andrade who tallied an easy tap-in at the back post.

Things calmed down a bit until the 36th minute when Brazilian midfielder Wallace took the space in front of him and blasted a rocketing shot that came down off the bar, but failed to cross the whole line, keeping the score at 2-0.

The U.S. went into halftime on the back of a good chance as Adrian Villegas’ free kick from the left swung dangerously to the six-yard box looking for Tim Weah, but the attacker was just a step slow as the ball bounced straight to Brazil ‘keeper Lucas Alexandre.

Despite the U.S. controlling more of the ball in the second half, the Brazilians were able to add to the lead with a spectacular lead in the 63rd minute. Marco Antonio cross from the right looking for Helio Junio who snuck into the box before unleashing a full volley with his left foot that tucked back inside the right post.

Still hoping for a goal, second half U.S. substitute George Acosta got on the end of a bouncing ball at midfield and volleyed it up for himself before hitting a looping 30-yard effort that dropped just inches wide of the right post.

The U.S. continued searching and had a strong penalty shout in the 76th minute as Josh Sargent impressively made his way inside the penalty area where he was flattened by a Brazilian defender, but referee Greg Dopka gave a free kick just outside the area. On the ensuing free kick, Acosta’s right-footed take clanged off the cross bar before being cleared.

Three minutes later, Sargent got on the end of a bouncing ball out of the back and took one touch before rounding Brazil substitute ‘keeper Victor Hugo but his shot was cleared off the line by Brazilian captain Hiago.

The late flurry of chances couldn’t produce a U.S. goal as the Brazilians were able to hold their 3-0 lead and to close the 2015 Nike International Friendlies with a win.

2015 Nike Friendlies - England U-17 Named Champions After a 2-2 Draw Against The Netherlands

England and the Netherlands meet in first game of the final matchday with the
2015 Nike International Friendlies title on the line.
Hosted by U.S. Soccer at Premier Sports Complex in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.

LAKEWOOD RANCH, Florida (Dec. 6, 2015) – Though early on it looked like The Netherlands Under-17 Men’s National Team would come away victorious, England Under-17 Men’s National Team substitute Ryan Sessegnon’s 80th minute goal stood up to give the side a 2-2 draw and the 2015 Nike International Friendlies championship.

It didn’t take long for The Netherlands to get things started early when Juan Familio-Castilo forced a turnover at midfield and quickly played Daishawn Redan. The pass was threaded beautifully, allowing Redan an easy stride into the area before slotting his fourth goal of the competition past Curtis Anderson in the eighth minute.

 Three minutes later, another England turnover saw Redan thread through in alone on goal again, but this time, Anderson was brave off his line to make the stop at the top of the penalty area.

Despite the save, England would surrender a second goal in the 16th minute as Maurice Kone’s cross from the left was nodded away by Oliver Skipp, but fell perfectly for Dereck Darkwa who tucked his first-time volley well inside the left post to give The Netherlands a 2-0 lead.

England would cut the deficit just before halftime. Tashan Oakley Booth beat two men to advance to the end line on the right before placing a perfect pass to the back post to allow Jadon Sancho an easy tap-in for his third goal of the Nike Friendlies in the 40th minute.

The Netherlands nearly restored their two-goal lead in first half stoppage time when Redan got on the end of a bouncing ball in the box and hit a half-volley that Anderson did well to get his right paw to, taking the game into halftime.

Possession was the name of the game in the second half as neither team could find a decent chance until late. Needing just a draw to win the competition, England left the clinching goal very late as George McEachran’s free kick found Sessgnon strolling from the left, where he just slightly redirected the ball past Holland ‘keeper Jasper Schendelaar in the 80th minute.

England defended well into stoppage time to see out the match, earning a well-fought 2-2 draw and the 2015 Nike International Friendlies championship.
