One Year Later, 2017 U-20 World Cup Alumni Make Their Mark with MNT

About this time last year, Cameron Carter Vickers didn’t know what to think about Josh Sargent upon his surprise addition to the Under-20 Men’s National Team. The 17-year-old forward arrived at the U-20 MNT’s pre-World Cup training camp in Korea Republic just a few days after leading the U-17 MNT to a runner-up finish at the Concacaf U-17 Championship.

Sargent went from captain to new kid on the block. From a veteran U-17 presence to interloper in a well-established U-20 squad. As a defender, Carter-Vickers went against the young striker every day in camp. He still had questions about the mop-topped redhead from St. Louis.

“I wasn’t too sure about him,” Carter-Vickers said. “I wasn’t too sure that he was that good of a player, or if he was going to be what we needed.”

Game day brought an end to any uncertainty. After suffering an early 2-0 deficit to open the

U-20 World Cup, the team desperately needed a goal in their opening match against Ecuador. Sargent delivered. His poised 36th-minute strike put the USA on the board. When the U-20s needed an equalizer, Sargent answered once again 18 minutes later. The performance cleared the air of any lingering doubt.

“As soon as that first game, I could see that he could strike a ball well,” Carter-Vickers said. “Obviously, he scored two goals and I thought, yeah, I can see why he’s here.”

Almost a year to the date of his debut with the U-20 MNT, Sargent earned his first appearance for the senior squad on May 28 against Bolivia in Philadelphia. Like his debut with the 20s, the now-18-year-old made an instant impression. In the 52nd minute, the 18-year-old swooped in on a poorly played ball by Bolivia goalkeeper Carlos Lampe, took it out of the air, turned and stuffed home his first international goal. Aged 18 years, 102 days, the strike make Sargent the second-young MNT player to score in his debut.

“There’s a great generation coming through,” Sargent said after the game. “I think the fans have a lot to look forward to. It’s all gone by so fast. It’s really cool to be able to score at each level, and now proving that I can score at the professional level as well.”

One year after the U-20 MNT reached the quarterfinals at the U-20 World Cup in Korea Republic, a quintet of that team’s young talent has reached the senior MNT, the highest number yet in a single camp from last summer’s tournament roster. The U-20 alumni have begun to make an impact as part of the young MNT’s next generation.

“It's really nice to be here together now and look back on the Under-20 cycle. We've come pretty far,” said midfielder Tyler Adams. “When I got my first call-up, it was an exciting time period because there were a lot of young faces. It’s refreshing to see a lot of young talent that we have graduated and come through the Youth National Teams. For these guys now, you're going to see their faces a lot."

The five players now in camp from last year’s U-20 World Cup-- Adams, Carter-Vickers, Luca de la Torre, Erik Palmer-Brown and Sargent—all climbed up the Youth National Team ladder. All but Carter-Vickers spent time at the U-17 level before they made a jump to the next World Cup age group, while the England-based defender logged minutes with the U-18s. Sargent pulled double duty with the 17s and 20s last year as a key player in each team’s World Cup run. He made one appearance with the U-20 squad earlier this year before his current MNT call-up.

Carter-Vickers and Palmer-Brown got a head start on their YNT development when they made the 2015 U-20 World Cup roster as underage players. In New Zealand, Carter-Vickers established a partnership with fellow center back Matt Miazga, one which has already taken the field three times for the senior team since last November in Portugal.

“Having been part of a World Cup, going into the second one you kind of know what to expect.” Carter-Vickers said. “You can pass some bits and bobs to your teammates and just try to help the team do well. In both 2015 and 2017, everyone got on really well on and off the pitch. There was good team chemistry. I think we performed at both of them.”

That 2015 World Cup in New Zealand has provided a similar pipeline of talent for the current MNT. Several players from that squad have advanced to the full team since November, and have already begun to make an impression at the senior level. In the current camp, Miazga, Zack Steffen and Rubio Rubin have all made multiple MNT appearances, while Shaq Moore earned his debut on Saturday against Ireland.

Midfielders Kellyn Acosta and Paul Arriola played big roles for the MNT in the past year, while Marky Delgado and Emerson Hyndman have also picked up their first caps, meaning that a staggering half of the 2015 roster has enjoyed senior team debuts.

Erik Palmer-Brown played only 90 minutes in New Zealand, but the experiences he gleaned as a part of the World Cup roster proved invaluable. He entered the new U-20 cycle as the team’s captain, and last spring led the USA to its first-ever Concacaf U-20 Championship.

That run forged the team together, and while six new players joined the U-20 ranks for Korea Republic, Sargent stood as the biggest curveball. The O’Fallon, Mo., product had appeared in just one U-20 MNT camp before the forward was thrust into the mix. As the captain, Lee’s Summit native Palmer-Brown dealt with task to integrate him into the team. Their shared Missouri roots provided plenty of ammo for banter

“As a team, we were open. I think we trust in the coaches and the system that they're going to choose the best players to be at the camp,” Palmer-Brown said. “For us, I think it was very seamless for Josh to come to the group. He’s from Missouri so I had to pick on him quite a bit. When he came in the group we had a lot of fun. I think in general he did well and he only helped our team.”

Performance served as the prime proving ground. Sargent’s showing in the opener turned heads, and his tear continued the rest of the team’s time in Korea. He followed up his standout debut with the game-winner in a 1-0 win against Senegal and another in a 6-0 rout of New Zealand. His four goals earned him Silver Boot honors at the tournament and an eventual professional contract with Bundesliga side Werder Bremen.

After another strong performance at last October’s FIFA U-17 World Cup in India, Sargent earned his first call-up to the senior team in Portugal a month later. U-20 teammates Tyler Adams and Cameron Carter-Vickers joined him. At the MNT’s annual January camp, U-20 MNT Real Salt Lake products Danny Acosta, Justen Glad and Brooks Lennon earned their first senior invites. Palmer-Brown made his MNT camp debut in March and his first appearance on May 28 against Bolivia.

The recent U-20 graduates sit near the center of the MNT’s refreshed roster. The squad’s average age came in just over 23 years, while 10 players stood age-eligible for last year’s competition. While they have represented the USA at the world’s highest level of youth competition, the senior level stage presents a new challenge.

Like the World Cup, moments like Sargent’s goal in Philadelphia will help to establish their place with the senior team, while defeats like the last-minute loss to Ireland will provide educational lumps to take. As they begin to forge the MNT’s future, the core of familiar faces has facilitated their jumps to the full international ranks. 

“It's a lot more fun to grow up with all the guys that you started with and see how they've progressed over time and developed and able to make the next step together,” Adams said. “It's fairly easy to come into camp when you know you're going to have guys that you're really close with in camp with you. It makes it very seamless. 

“You take those youth World Cup experiences and you’re ready to make the next step. When you recognize how important it is that you've really made it to the senior national team, it really keeps you hungry. You want more if you want to keep getting called in, you want to establish yourself and continue to represent the country.”

USA's Run at 2017 U-20 World Cup Ends After 2-1 Extra Time Defeat to Venezuela in Quarterfinals

JEONJU, Korea Republic (June 4, 2017) – The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team gave a sterling account of themselves, fighting through the final whistle in a 2-1 extra time defeat to Venezuela in the Quarterfinals of the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Korea Republic.

After 90 minutes of high-intensity but scoreless soccer, the U.S. U-20s found themselves down 2-0 late in extra time after goals from Venezuela’s Adalberto Peñaranda and Nahuel Ferraresi in the 96th and 116th minutes, respectively. However, Jeremy Ebobisse rescued hope for the USA, scoring the first goal against Venezuela to this point in the tournament in the 117th minute, but a valiant U.S. side couldn’t tack on another in the waning moments to send the match to PKs.

The U.S. grew into the match slowly as Venezuela came charging out of the gate, forcing a diving save from U.S. goalkeeper Jonathan Klinsmann in the opening minute of play and a second fine stop after a quarter of an hour had gone by. The U.S. stuck to its game plan and began to foray forward in search of its own chances only to see Sergio Córdova strike what would have been the opening goal of the game midway through the half; however his goal was correctly called back for offside after the Video Assistant Referee took a second look at the play.

The second half opened much as the first had with Venezuela going close to taking the lead on an attempt from Ronaldo Chacon but, his headed shot from a corner kick thundered back off the bar and was cleared in the 48th minute. Córdova then crashed a second header off the bar moments after being stoned by Klinsmann as he bore in on goal. The U.S. settled down as the half wore on and nearly snatched a late winner when captain Erik Palmer-Brown beat La Vinotinto goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez to a cross only to see his headed shot flash just inches outside the right post with the final play of regulation.

This is the second consecutive U-20 World Cup that head coach Tab Ramos has guided the U.S. to the Quarterfinal stage. Although the U.S. is headed home, the players do so after tying multiple program records and winning arguably the toughest group of the tournament.

Goal Scoring Rundown:
VEN – Adalberto Peñaranda (Samuel Sosa), 96th minute: A quick break by Venezuela down the USA’s right flank received a kind deflection when Adalberto Peñaranda tried to make a move past his defender with the ball deflecting out wide into the path of the onrushing Samuel Sosa. He rifled in a low across along the top of the six yard box that picked out Peñaranda, whose first time shot nestled into the far left side netting. USA 0, VEN 1

VEN – Nahuel Ferraresi (Ronaldo Lucena), 116h minute: From a corner kick, Ronaldo Lucena whipped an inswinging cross toward the back right post where Nahuel Ferraresi lay in wait and headed the ball down into the turf. It bounced back up and into the top right corner of the goal for what proved to be the game winner. USA 0, VEN 2

USA – Jeremy Ebobisse (Brooks Lennon), 117th minute: From a set piece, Lennon sent the ball deep into the Venezuela box toward the back left post where a trio of U.S. players were arriving. It was Ebobisse who got his head to the ball, sending a looping header back across the goal and just inside the post into the right, side netting to give the USA hope until the final whistle. USA 1, VEN 2 (A.E.T.) FINAL

Key Stops and Saves:
USA – Jonathan Klinsmann, 1st minute:
A set piece opportunity for Venezuela saw a cross driven into the heart of the U.S. penalty area where La Vinotinto center back Nahuel Ferraresi leap above all challengers to power a strong header toward the lower right corner of the goal. However, Klinsmann flashed impressive reflexes to making a diving, fingertip save to deflect the ball just outside the post.

USA – Jonathan Klinsmann, 13th minute: Yangel Herrera forced a turnover in the U.S. defensive third and fed the ball into the center of the pitch for Adalberto Peñaranda, who had space to look up and opt to shoot from 20 yards out. His low drive was headed for the bottom left corner but Klinsmann made a strong diving save to push the shot around the outside of the post.

USA – Jonathan Klinsmann, 61st minute: An excellent through-ball was laid into the path of Sergio Córdova who had the goal at his mercy but saw Klinsmann get low in a hurry to smother his shot from just inside the top of the box that was headed right into the center of the goal.

USA – Eryk Williamson, 88th minute: A flowing sequence from Venezuela resulted in the ball being played through to Adalberto Peñaranda as he scythed into the U.S. area, but Williamson had tracked the attacker’s run and made a last-second sliding tackle to deny Peñaranda’s point blank shot from the middle of the box.

Additional Notes:

  • U.S. defender Cameron Carter-Vickers and midfielder Derrick Jones returned to the starting XI after missing the Round of 16 due to yellow card suspension.
  • Carter-Vickers was joined in defense by fellow center back Erik Palmer-Brown and left back Danny Acosta as well as right back Justen Glad, who retained his starting spot he was handed in the Round of 16 despite the return from yellow card suspension of Aaron Herrera, who had started the first three matches of the tournament for the USA.
  • Jones, Eryk Williamson and Tyler Adams were reunited in midfield in support of Luca de la Torre, Josh Sargent and Brooks Lennon, who formed the USA’s forward line.
  • Adams exited the match in the 51st minute and was replaced by Jeremy Ebobisse, while Josh Sargent was withdrawn in the 83rd minute, having sustained a nasty cut to the head earlier in the match on a high boot from a Venezuela defender. Lagos Kunga replaced the U.S. striker.
  • In the second half of extra time, Eryk Williamson came off for striker Emanuel Sabbi in the 112th minute and Danny Acosta parted for Auston Trusty in the 120th.
  • The USA is 5-9-1 all-time in Knockout Round games at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
  • U.S. head coach Tab Ramos moves to 5-4-4 all-time at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
  • The Quarterfinal match occurred just hours after the U.S. and Venezuela senior sides tied 1-1 in a friendly match at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.

USA Aims to Continue Run vs. Venezuela in U-20 World Cup Quarterfinals | 2am ET | FS2, Telemundo En Vivo

JEONJU, Korea Republic (June 3, 2017) – The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team will look to advance to the FIFA U-20 World Cup Semifinals for just the second time when it faces Venezuela on Sunday, June 4 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonju, Korea Republic. The match will be broadcast live on FS2 and Telemundo En Vivo with kickoff set for 2:00 a.m. ET. Fans can also follow the match live on twitter at @ussoccer_ynt.

The U.S. finished atop Group F, drawing 3-3 with Ecuador and defeating Senegal 1-0 before a 10-man U.S. side played to a 1-1 tie with Saudi Arabia, the U-20 MNT then downed New Zealand 6-0 in the Round of 16. The six-goal output against the Junior All-Whites matched a 6-0 win against Turkey at the 1993 edition for the USA’s largest margin of victory at a FIFA U-20 World Cup.

On Sunday, the USA will look to advance to the Semifinals for the first time since 1989, when the side had its best all-time finish, taking fourth place.

Venezuela enters the match after finishing first in Group B and also as the only remaining team in the competition yet to concede a goal. After a perfect start to the group stage, where La Vinotinto took down Germany (2-0), Vanuatu (7-0) and Mexico (1-0), Venezuela faced a tough Japan side in a match that nearly went to penalties had it not been for New York City FC defensive midfielder Yangel Herrera’s 108th minute winner.

The winner of the USA-Venezuela match will face either Portugal or Uruguay in the Semifinals. The other side of the bracket sees Italy meeting Zambia and Mexico confronting England. The first two Quarterfinal matches take place on June 4 in Jeonju and Daejeon, while the opposite side of the USA bracket will kick off from Suwon and Cheonan, respectively, on June 5.

5 Things to Know About U-20 MNT Defender Justen Glad

Coming off a historic 6-0 win in the Round of 16, the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team looks to continue to advance in the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup when it faces Venezuela in the quarterfinals. Among the six different goal scorers against New Zealand was Justen Glad, who was making his first start of the tournament.

Here are five things you should know about the defender from Tucson, Ariz.:

Success in the Academy

Glad joined the RSL-Arizona Academy in 2012 and made an immediate impact, helping the RSL U-16 team win the 2012-13 U.S. Soccer Development Academy title. Glad scored the game-winning goal in RSL’s 4-2 victory over Solar Chelsea SC in the final and he was named to the Academy Western Conference “Starting XI.” The following season, Glad was again named to the Western Conference “Starting XI” as Real Salt Lake AZ finished as runner-up to Los Angeles Galaxy.

RSL Bonds Run Deep

Glad is one of four players on the U.S. U-20 World Cup roster, along with Danny Acosta, Brooks Lennon and Sebastian Saucedo, representing Real Salt Lake. A fifth member of the team, Aaron Herrera of the University of New Mexico, was also a member of the RSL Academy before choosing the college route. Glad, Lennon and Saucedo represent the longest-serving members of the group, having played together with RSL since August of 2012. Making up nearly a quarter of the U.S. U-20 roster, the players from RSL have a special bond.

“I grew up playing with these guys. There’s a camaraderie you don’t get when you’re just playing with guys from around the country,” Glad told RSL.com earlier this month. “I know these guys and hang out with these guys every day. That’s something special.”

Joining the Professional Ranks

Two successful seasons in the RSL-Arizona Academy led to a homegrown contract for Glad. On April 7, 2014, the then 17-year old became the seventh player to join the RSL first team from the academy. Glad’s pro debut came almost one year later to the day on April 8, 2015 for Real Monarchs in their first home match of their inaugural season in USL; Glad scored on his debut in a 1-1 draw against Portland Timbers 2. As the 2015 season progressed, Glad moved up to the RSL first team, making seven M.L.S. appearances while also earning a start in both the CONCACAF Champions League and the U.S. Open Cup.

Coming of Age in 2016

Glad rose to prominence in the RSL first team during the 2016 season, when he made 28 league appearances, including 27 starts. On April 2, 2016, Glad scored his first career M.L.S. goal in a 2-1 victory over Sporting Kansas City. Glad participated in the 2016 M.L.S. Homegrown Game, part of the league’s all-star week festivities, for the second consecutive year and went on to be named the RSL Defensive Player of the Year. Glad’s successful 2016 season was rewarded with a multi-year contract extension on February 18, 2017.

A Family Affair

Justin Glad isn’t the only member of his family to play soccer beyond the youth ranks. Both of his older siblings, brother Eric and sister Jenna, played soccer collegiately. Eric was a junior college All-American at Pima Community College before moving on to Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, where he concluded his college career. Jenna was an all-state high school player in Arizona and went on to play collegiately at the University of Colorado.
