USA Roster Named for 2018 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup

CHICAGO (July 17, 2018) – U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team head coach Jitka Klimkova has named the 21 players who will represent the United States at the 2018 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup to be held Aug. 5-24 in the Brittany region of northwestern France.

Klimkova named the final roster after the completion of a training camp last week in Portland, Oregon, that featured two matches against Brazil.

The USA roster is made up of 16 current collegiate players and five youth club players who will enter college this fall. All five competed in the recently-completed first season of the U.S. Soccer Girls’ Development Academy. Players born on or after Jan. 1, 1998 are eligible for the World Cup. The U.S. roster is made up of seven players born in 1998, 10 born in 1999 and four born in 2000. 

“Honestly, these were some of the toughest decisions I’ve had to make in my coaching career,” Klimkova said. “The overall pool was so competitive and we needed every training session and game before we selected the final 21. We are confident that the group we picked is the best team. We looked at many factors over the past year from their influence and decision making in games to their training mentality and versatility, to the intangibles, and of course their performances in international matches. The credit goes to the players for their work ethic and mental toughness throughout the process.”
