U-20 WNT GK McGlynn Reaches New Heights in Trinidad & Tobago

“It was amazing, but it was painful,” said U.S. U-20 Women’s National Team goalkeeper Amanda McGlynn. It was exactly where she wanted to be -- at the bottom of a dogpile after helping the U.S. U-20 WNT to a dramatic World Cup-clinching victory. When it comes to high-pressure situations in the game of soccer, nothing quite matches a penalty kick shootout. When there’s a Wo Read more

Redemption Song: U-20 WNT Defender Zoe Morse Takes Her Shot

The blow of the final whistle flashed Zoe Morse back to 2013. It was déjà vu. Same dripping Caribbean humidity. Same score. Same end of the field. Even the same center referee. Above all, same scenario: a penalty kick shootout with a World Cup berth on the line. In 2013, Zoe Morse and the U-17 Women’s National Team battled Mexico to a 1-1 draw over 90 minutes in Montego Bay, Read more

Late Goal Lifts USA Over Jamaica 2-1 in Second 2018 CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship Group Game

COUVA, Trinidad & Tobago (Jan. 21, 2018) – The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team defeated Jamaica 2-1 to win its second group stage match at the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s U-20 Championship. With the victory, the USA clinches a berth in the tournament semifinals.

The U.S. controlled possession for most of the first half, but as the clock wore on, Jamaica’s counterattack cut deeper and deeper into the Americans’ final third. U.S. Midfielder Savannah DeMelo found success feeding the ball to forwards Sophia Smith and Civana Kulmann, letting the duo fire away on some dangerous chances. Smith rocketed a few threatening shots, but wasn’t able to find the back of the net until a 42nd-minute free kick.

The USA came out of the half on the attack with an eye to extend its lead, but the Reggae Girlz became more aggressive as the half wore on and made some very dangerous forays into U.S. territory, highlighted by a shot off the crossbar with 20 minutes remaining.

The shot was a warning, and Jamaica equalized from a set piece in the 88th minute via a Jadyn Matthews strike. But the USA was not to be defeated, striking back just over a minute later as Smith picked out Howell in the Jamaica box for the game winner and extend its CONCACAF qualifying undefeated streak to 22.

In the first Group B match of the day, Mexico defeated Nicaragua 3-0. El Tri is currently first in Group B based on goal differential.

Up Next: The USA will have a chance to top the group when they face Mexico on Tuesday, Jan. 23 at 2:30 p.m. ET (UDN, CONCACAF YouTube).

Goal Scoring Rundown:

USA – Sophia Smith (free kick), 42nd minute:
On the attack, Savannah DeMelo drew a foul when she was sandwiched between two defenders near the top of the center of the Jamaica box. She, Isabel Rodriguez and Smith lined up behind the ball on the free kick, and after some shuffling, Smith was left to take it. She struck a thunderous shot to the top right corner, giving the USA a 1-0 lead just before the half. USA 1, JAM 0 [WATCH]

JAM – Jadyn Matthews (Jody Brown), 88th minute: Jamaica’s second half pressure finally told late on when a free kick from 35 yards out to the right of the U.S. goal was floated in toward the back post where Brown headed the ball back across the face of goal. Matthews was quickest to react, stabbing the ball over the line with two defenders closing in. USA 2, JAM 1 [WATCH]

USA – Jaelin Howell (Sophia Smith), 89h minute: The USA responded immediately after suffering a potentially dispiriting equalizer. Advancing the ball down Jamaica’s right flank, Smith got free with the ball near the endline and zipped a pass across the goal mouth, picking out the run of Howell who only needed to make contact to redirect the ball in from the center of the six-yard box to secure an exhilarating late win for the United States. USA 2, JAM 1 [WATCH] FINAL

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:

JAM – Sydney Schneider, 14th minute:
Rodriguez came up to win a tough ball in the air and headed it forward, finding Kelsey Turnbow. She centered it to DeMelo, who immediately hit a pass to Smith at the top of the box. The forward took a few dribbles and launched a booming strike to the right side, but Sydney Schneider tipped the USA’s best early chance upwards and out-of-bounds.

USA – Amanda McGlynn, 43rd minute:
Jamaica found its most dangerous chance of the first half soon after the opening goal. Quickly pressing into the American end, Giselle Washington tapped the ball towards the net from the top of the circle, setting off a foot race between Marlee Fray and Zoe Morse. Fray and Morse collided right in front of U.S. goalkeeper Amanda McGlynn, but she quickly recovered to grab the ball as it squirted out.

JAM – Sydney Schneider, 54th minute (53:05):
After an American attacking run, Schneider’s clearance attempt was intercepted in the air and played up to Kuhlmann. She had the ball taken away from her, but the misplayed clearance teed the ball up for Viviana VIllacorta on the run. The midfielder launched a shot towards the right side, but Schneider got just enough to deflect the ball out-of-bounds.  

JAM – Sydney Schneider, 59th minute:
From behind the half line, Naomi Girma hit a well-placed long ball to find Smith on the run. She centered to DeMelo, whose first-time attempt was deflected by Schneider’s shin guard. She quickly recovered and secured the ball.

USA – Amanda McGlynn, 71st minute (70:45):
The Reggae Girlz got more aggressive as the half wore on, aided by a spark from substitute Jazmin Grant. Grant made a nice dribble all the way from the Jamaican third to the American end and after a back-and-forth with her teammate, she launched a screamer from the top left corner of the box. McGlynn deflected it upwards, but it bounced off the crossbar. Mireya Grey captured the rebound and dished to Grant in front of the net, but her follow-up attempt on net went wide.

KICKING OFF WITH A WIN: The USA dominated possession against Nicaragua, controlling the ball for more than 70 percent of the match and outshooting La Azul y Blanco 19-3. While Nicaragua had the first promising scoring opportunity, the relentless American attack broke through in the 17th minute. Savannah DeMelo connected with Taryn Torres on a cross in front of the net and Torres hammered it home for the game’s opening score.

Kuhlmann’s goal came just after halftime, when Jaelin Howell forced a turnover and slid the ball to the forward on a run towards the net. Kuhlmann slotted it into the corner for her ninth goal in 13 U-20 caps. The victory marked head coach Jitka Klimkova’s first in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying and extended the USA’s undefeated streak in the tournament to 21.

ROCKY START FOR REGGAE GIRLZ: Jamaica will look to bounce back in its match against the red, white and blue after a tough 4-0 loss to Mexico. El Tri barraged the Jamaican defense with 32 shots, compared to just four from the Caribbean squad.

RUN-UP TO T&T: The timing of the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s U-20 Championship at the start of the year after the college season made the player selection process less difficult. Sixteen of the 20 players on the roster are currently in college. The four outliers – defender Naomi Girma (California Thorns FC), midfielder Jaelin Howell (Real Colorado), midfielder Brianna Pinto (NTH Tophat) and forward Sophia Smith (Real Colorado) – are all high school seniors who are among the most experienced players on the roster. Howell, Pinto and Smith all saw training time with the senior WNT in 2017, but none earned a cap. All four youth club players are currently competing in the inaugural season of the U.S. Soccer Girls’ Development Academy.

Players born on or after January 1, 1998 are eligible for the 2018 U-20 Women’s World Cup, and head coach Jitka Klimkova named players from three birth years: six born in 1998, 11 born in 1999 and three born in 2000. The 17-year-old Smith, recently named 2017 U.S. Soccer Young Female Player of the Year, is the youngest player on the squad. Klimkova was able to evaluate 40 players in international game action last year, and evaluate many more during college matches last fall. The U-20s have gone through an excellent preparation schedule that saw the team go 6-4-2 in international matches. The losses came to youth women’s powers Japan, Germany and Brazil, while the USA also defeated similarly strong squads from England, Germany, Norway and France.

TOURNAMENT FORMAT: This year marks the ninth edition of the CONCACAF Women’s U-20 Championship. The tournament began in 1999 as the CONCACAF Women’s U-19 Championship. The field features eight nations divided into two groups of four teams. The top two finishers in each group will qualify for the semifinals. The winners of those games, as well as the winner of the third-place match, will earn berths to the 2018 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup in France.
