U-23 MNT Returns to Action with Two Matches in Spain

CHICAGO (March 15, 2019)—The U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team will play its first matches of the 2020 U-23 cycle with a pair of friendlies in San Pedro del Pinatar, Spain. Twenty-three of the USA’s brightest Olympic hopefuls will gather to face Egypt on Friday, March 22 and the Netherlands on Sunday, March 24. Both matches are set to kick off at 12 p.m. ET at the Pinatar Arena in San Pedro del Pinatar.

Newly-appointed U-23 MNT head coach Jason Kreis will lead the training camp.

The matches represent the beginning of a long journey to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo as the USA aims to qualify for its first Men’s Olympic Football Tournament since 2008. After narrowly missing qualification to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro by dropping an intercontinental playoff, the new U-23 MNT will set its sights on the Concacaf Olympic Qualifying Championship. Set for late 2019 or early 2020, two nations will advance to Tokyo from the tournament. 

Players born on or after Jan. 1, 1997 are age-eligible for the 2020 Men’s Olympic Football Tournament. This roster features 13 players born in 1997, four born in 1998 and two born in 2000.

U.S. U-23 MNT Roster by Position (Club; Hometown)
GOALKEEPERS (2): Jonathan Klinsmann (Hertha BSC/GER; Newport Beach, Calif.), JT Marcinkowski (San Jose Earthquakes; Alamo, Calif.)

DEFENDERS (9): Julian Araujo (LA Galaxy; Lompac, Calif.), Cameron Carter-Vickers (Swansea City/WAL; Southend-on-Sea, England), Marco Farfan (Portland Timbers; Portland, Ore.), Jack Maher (Indiana; Caseyville, Ill.), Matthew Olosunde (Manchester United/ENG; Trenton, N.J.), Donovan Pines (D.C. United; Clarksville, Md.), Lucas Pos (FC Lausanne-Sport/SUI; Irvine, Calif.), Antonee Robinson (Wigan Athletic/ENG; Milton Keyes, England), Miles Robinson (Atlanta United FC; Arlington, Mass.)

MIDFIELDERS (6): Derrick Jones (Philadelphia Union; Philadelphia, Penn.), Cameron Lindley (Orlando City SC; Carmel, Ind.), Djordje Mihailovic (Chicago Fire; Lemont, Ill.), Keaton Parks (New York City FC; Plano, Texas), Eryk Williamson (Portland Timbers; Alexandria, Va.), Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes; St. Paul, Minn.)     

FORWARDS (6): Jeremy Ebobisse (Portland Timbers; Bethesda, Md.), Josh Perez (LAFC; La Habra, Calif.), Emmanuel Sabbi (Hobro IK/DEN; Columbus, Ohio), Josh Sargent (Werder Bremen/GER; O'Fallon, MO), Tim Weah (Celtic FC/SCO; Rosedale, N.Y.), Haji Wright (Schalke/GER; Los Angeles, Calif.)     

The U-23 MNT’s two matches will serve as part of the Pinatar Arena Football Festival, an event featuring 14 international friendlies between 14 national teams in the U-20, U-21 and U-23 age groups from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and South America. The U.S. U-20 MNT will play France on Friday, March 22 and Japan on Monday, March 25 as part of the event.

Eight players on the roster have already debuted with the senior Men’s National Team. Four saw significant time with the MNT last year: forwards Josh Sargent (six appearances) and Tim Weah (8, as well as defenders Cameron Carter-Vickers (6) and Antonee Robinson (6). Defender Matthew Olosunde and midfielder Keaton Parks picked up their first caps in the MNT’s 3-0 win against Bolivia in Philadelphia last May, while forward Jeremy Ebobisee and midfielder Djordje Mihailovic made their first senior team debuts during the MNT’s January Camp victories against Panama and Costa Rica. Goalkeeper Jonathan Klinsmann was called to MNT camp last November but did not play against England or Italy.

Eight players were a part of the USA’s quarterfinal run at the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup: Carter-Vickers, Ebobisse, midfielder Derrick Jones, Klinsmann, goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski, forward Emmanuuel Sabbi, Sargent and midfielder Eryk Williamson. Sargent took home the Silver Boot in Korea Republic as the tournament’s second-leading goalscorer. The U-20s topped their group at the World Cup and took down New Zealand 6-0 in the Round of 16 before falling to eventual runner-up Venezuela in added extra time.

Sargent and Weah both appeared at the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup in India. The 17s also advanced to the quarterfinals, putting together a rousing 5-0 Round of 16 victory against Paraguay before bowing out to eventual champion England. Sargent captained the squad in India, while Weah scored a historic hat trick and one of the goals of the tournament against Paraguay. The USA was one of just two countries to advance to the quarterfinals of both the U-20 and U-17 World Cups in 2017.

ROSTER NOTES                                                          

  • Nineteen different clubs are represented on the roster. Thirteen players come from 10 domestic clubs, with the most coming from the Portland Timbers (3). Nine players are based internationally in Germany (3), England (2), Denmark, Scotland, Switzerland and Wales.
  • Ebobisse scored his first goal of the 2019 MLS season on March 10 against LAFC.
  • After missing more than three months due to injury, Antonee Robinson returned to action for Wigan on March 9, going the full 90 at Reading. He also played the full 90 in Wigan’s two games last week, March 12 at Blackburn and March 16 vs. Bolton.
  • Carter-Vickers has started and played the full 90 minutes in each of Swansea’s last eleven games.
  • Miles Robinson has impressed for Atlanta United FC so far this season as one of two players to start and play the full 90 in all seven of the club’s matches.
  • Jonathan Klinsmann made his first start of 2019 for Hertha BSC II on March 17 in a 3-1 win over Babelsberg.
  • Nineteen of 23 players have spent at least one season in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy.
  • The roster includes two former Academy Players of the Year: Ebobisee won the East Conference U-15/16 award in 2014 and Williamson took home East Conference U-17/18 honors in 2015.
  • Two players have won an Academy national championship: Cameron Lindley and Djordje Mihailovic took home the title as teammates for Chicago Fire U-17/18 in 2015.

Jason Kreis Q&A: "It’s an opportunity to work with the country’s brightest young stars."

An accomplished player and coach at the game’s highest levels, former U.S. international and MLS head coach Jason Kreis will now take the reins of the U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team. Kreis sat down with ussoccer.com to discuss his excitement about joining U.S. Soccer, his experience coaching throughout the USA and more.

ussoccer.com: What motivated you to take on this role at this point of your coaching career?

Jason Kreis: “It’s a tremendous opportunity. It’s an opportunity to be a part of a new system under the leadership of Gregg Berhalter and Earnie Stewart leading the National Team the way that they are. I’m a big fan of both of them. It’s an opportunity to work with the country’s brightest young stars. We have some fantastic young players. And it’s an opportunity to represent your country. In my opinion, that’s the highest honor of all.”

ussoccer.com: Several Olympic-eligible players saw time with the Men’s National Team last year, and strong prospects continue to come through the ranks of the Youth National Teams system. How exciting is it to work with this player pool that’s packed with so much potential?

JK: “There’s no doubt about it, this group of players was a major factor in my thinking about this position. The group is going to be very talented. I think it should be arguably the best U-23 group that this country’s ever seen. That’s a huge credit to all the work that everyone in the soccer community has done in this country over the last 10-20 years.

“We’re at a different stage in our lives in the game here where you can see that the player pool mostly consists of professional players, and the top of the player pool almost exclusively consists of professional players. No longer are we in the days where we’re going to be relying on a large number of college players to represent us in Olympic qualification.

“It’s a lot of top talent all over the field. It’s not like you can look at this group and say, ‘They’ve got some great attacking pieces but defensively they struggle.’ I think on every line there’s real quality. It’s an amazing opportunity when you think about the fact that all these players have been developed in professional environments and are currently in professional environments. That’s just different than I think it ever has been in the past.”

ussoccer.com: You’re going to hit the ground running with this group, heading immediately to a training camp in San Pedro del Pinatar, Spain. What are your goals for this first camp?

JK: “It’s pretty clear what the goals are. The first is to build a culture and an environment for high-level play. That’s in lockstep with Gregg and with the Men’s National Team. We want to teach a style of play and to identify the player pool a little bit more. Working with the players is always different than viewing them from the outside, so a large chunk of this will just be identifying what we have there. The last piece is competing - not just competing in the games, but also competing in the training sessions. We’re looking for the players to show a certain mentality that we value and that we’re going to keep around with the group moving forward.”

ussoccer.com: You’ll have some more time to settle into the position following this training camp. What will be the next steps in your role as U-23 MNT head coach?

“The very next steps will be all-encompassing. It will be important to spend some time in Chicago with the entire group and really hash over what the player pool looks like. It’ll be working with Gregg to have a complete understanding of the system of play and the methodology that he wants to implement, because we want to be in line with that. And then we’ll look at the broader schedule between now and whenever the Olympic qualifying is determined to be and outline a plan for how we best prepare ourselves to be at the peak of our performance come qualification.

ussoccer.com: What have your initial conversations with Earnie and Gregg been like?

JK: “Those two individuals were a big reason why I wanted to consider this opportunity, as well as Gregg’s coaching staff. I spent a little bit of time around his coaching staff, and I spent quite a bit of time around Gregg. We have a long history that’s crossed paths many times and I think we’re going to have a really good communicative effort between the two groups.

“I see it as a real collaboration. That’s what I like to be a part of - I like to be a part of teams that work together and communicate and figure out the best solutions.”

ussoccer.com: What’s the importance of this team as a bridge to the senior MNT?

JK: “It’s absolutely important that we try to establish a seamless pathway from the YNTs to the senior MNT and the Under-23 piece is critical in that. There are two main objectives overall when you look at my job. First and foremost, the main objective has to be to qualify for the Olympics. But going right hand-in-hand with that, it’s important that I’m a part of the development of some of the very best players so that they can move seamlessly into the full National Team.”

ussoccer.com: How have your experiences in Concacaf competitions as a player and a coach prepared you for the rigors of a Concacaf qualifying tournament?

JK: “It helps any time that you’re involved with a Concacaf tournament. I was involved in it a little bit through my National Team career, albeit short and brief. There were a few games in Central American countries that I was a part of. Then to be a part of that as a coach through the Concacaf Champions League, you just gain a whole lot of experience and understanding of those matches and what the surroundings of those matches look like. You understand those things, and I think it’s important that you convey that well to the team. I’ve had some pretty decent success in the past at the club level with Concacaf and I think it should be the same internationally.”

ussoccer.com: You’ll aim to guide the U-23 MNT to its first Olympics since 2008. Does missing the last two Olympic tournaments provide any extra motivation to qualify this time around?

JK: “I don’t think so. I don’t think we should need any extra motivation. I think the past is the past and we need to look forward and be focused on ourselves. One of the most fantastic things about this type of opportunity is that at the end of the day, you really shouldn’t have to motivate anybody. Everybody that’s a part of this is going to be motivated by the simple fact that they’re representing their country and they have an opportunity to play in an Olympics.”

ussoccer.com: You recently joined the technical department of MLS expansion club Inter Miami CF and you’ll continue in that role while serving as U-23 MNT head coach. How will you balance those responsibilities?

JK: “Diligently. You need to be organized and U.S. Soccer has already laid out a calendar for me, and I’ve put that in front of Miami and they’re on board with it. I think that says a lot about the club that Miami is forming. They are appreciative of these types of opportunities and supportive of me and my endeavors. I’ll have to work a lot, there’s no doubt, but I’ve never been afraid of that.”

ussoccer.com: What will your staff look like moving forward?

JK: “That’s still a question mark that I’m going to leave until after this camp. This camp has already been staffed. Earnie and U.S. Soccer Chief Sport Development Officer Nico Romeijn did a great job of making sure all those spaces were covered and really just needed to insert a head coach.

“I am going to bring an assistant coach on this trip. We’ve asked for the permission to have Miles Joseph come with us from Portland, and Portland has graciously allowed us that request. But as we move forward, we need to really put some thought into how we can staff this team the best way. One of our main objectives is to create an environment of elite performance. In order to do that, we need elite staff members.”

Jason Kreis Named Head Coach of U-23 MNT

CHICAGO (March 19, 2019) — U.S. Soccer has appointed Jason Kreis as the new head coach of the U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team.

The former standout forward enjoyed a stellar 11-year playing career in Major League Soccer and has served as a head coach in the league for 10 years. Kreis recently joined the technical department of MLS expansion side Inter Miami CF and will continue in that role in addition to his duties with the U-23 MNT.

The 46-year-old is in the MLS record books for his accomplishments both on and off the field. He became the youngest coach in league history to win the MLS Cup when he led Real Salt Lake to the 2009 title and he guided RSL to the best-ever finish for an American club in the Concacaf Champions League in 2011. Currently No. 7 on the MLS all-time scoring list, he was the first player in league history to record 100 goals.

“Jason’s qualities and experience made him stand out as the best candidate to lead our U-23 Men’s National Team in this important cycle towards the 2020 Olympics,” said Earnie Stewart, Men’s National Team general manager. “The U-23s are a significant part of our program, and Jason is an experienced head coach with significant success both in league and Concacaf competitions. His knowledge of the player pool is impressive, and we are confident in his ability to implement the style of play we are building with the senior MNT and throughout our national teams. We appreciate the willingness of Inter Miami CF to allow us the opportunity to take advantage of Jason’s abilities to guide this group.”

Upon his retirement as a player from Real Salt Lake, Kreis immediately took the reigns as head coach at the club. He led RSL to unmatched success during his tenure, leading the team to its only MLS Cup title and a runner-up MLS Cup finish throughout six consecutive playoff appearances from 2008-13.

At the continental level, Kreis coached the Claret and Cobalt to the 2011 Concacaf Champions League Finals, the best performance by a U.S.-based club in the competition’s history. After his time in Salt Lake City, he led New York City FC in its inaugural MLS season and served as Orlando City SC’s second head coach. Kreis holds a U.S. Soccer Pro License.

“It’s a tremendous opportunity,” Kreis said. “It’s an opportunity to be a part of a new system under the leadership of Gregg Berhalter and Earnie Stewart leading the National Team the way that they are. It’s an opportunity to work with the country’s brightest young stars, and it’s an opportunity to represent your country. In my opinion, that’s the highest honor of all.”

Kreis will lead the U-23 MNT at its training camp this week in San Pedro del Pinatar, Spain. The U-23s are slated to take on Egypt on March 22 and the Netherlands on March 24. The camp marks the beginning of a long journey to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, with Kreis aiming to guide the USA to qualification for its first Men’s Olympic Football Tournament since 2008.

As a player, the Nebraska native featured collegiately for Duke University and spent a season in the USISL, a forerunner of the USL, before MLS was founded in 1996. Kreis was selected in the inaugural MLS Draft by the Dallas Burn and scored the club’s first-ever goal. The forward was named league MVP in 1999, becoming the first American to win the award. Kreis became the league’s all-time leading scorer in 2004, a mark that stood for more than three years. One of the most decorated players in Dallas’ history, Kreis is still the club’s all-time leader in games, goals and assists.

After the 2004 season, Kreis was traded to expansion outfit Real Salt Lake. He scored the club’s first goal during its inaugural 2005 season, becoming the first MLS player to score two different teams’ first goals.

Kreis made 14 appearances with the U.S. MNT from 1996-2000, netting his lone international goal in a 1999 friendly against Jamaica. He also served as a guest assistant coach in the MNT’s 2016 January Camp.

USA-Ecuador: Three Tidbits of History

With nearly 700 official matches in the books against 97 different opponents since the U.S. Men’s National Team first started playing in 1916, the MNT has accumulated a rich history of dramatic results, intriguing story lines and interesting anecdotes.

Ahead of Thursday’s match against Ecuador, here are three tidbits of the MNT’s history against La Tricolor:

A Team to Debut Against

This is a completely random and unscientific fact, but did you know that six MNT players who made their senior debut against Ecuador went on to represent the United States in at least one FIFA World Cup?


Future MNT captain Tony Meola around the time of his MNT debut vs. Ecuador in 1988

Why is it significant? Because as international opponents go, that ranks as the second most behind only Canada and Guatemala, who each had seven future U.S. World Cup players debut against them.

Who are the six, you ask? Here’s a grid to lay it all out for you…

The seven players on that list combine for a total of 11 World Cup rosters and 409 caps. Two players captained the USA at the World Cup (Mike Windischmann 1990; Tony Meola 1994), while Meola and Tim Howard are two of the MNT’s world-record holding 17 players to attain 100 or more caps.

Landon’s Second Hat Trick

The last MNT World Cup player to debut against Ecuador was Benny Feilhaber, but his first cap in 2007 was understandably overshadowed by the second of Landon Donovan’s MNT record three career hat tricks.

Donovan tallied one of the fastest goals in MNT history, putting back a rebound just 35 seconds into the game. He then completed the feat with goals in the 66th and 67th minutes to cap the scoring in a 3-1 victory at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.


Donovan made his 157th and final international appearance against Ecuador, playing 41 minutes in a 1-1 draw on Oct. 10, 2014 in East Hartford, Conn. 

The Last Meeting

The highest stakes encounter with Ecuador was also the last meeting, coming in the quarterfinals of the 2016 Copa America Centenario.

In a chippy match where both teams played much of the second half with 10 men, goals from Clint Dempsey and Gyasi Zardes and a strong defensive effort helped the USA earn a memorable 2-1 victory in front of 47,322 fans at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

Jesse Gonzalez Replaces Zack Steffen on MNT Roster for Matches Against Ecuador and Chile

CHICAGO (March 17, 2019) – U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper Zack Steffen has been forced to withdraw from the squad’s upcoming friendlies against Ecuador and Chile due to injury.

Following Saturday’s 1-0 shutout win for Columbus Crew SC against FC Dallas, the MNT ‘keeper was diagnosed with a minor right knee injury.

FC Dallas goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez has been added to the roster, keeping the squad at 24 players as the team begins reporting to Orlando on Sunday. Having filed a one-time change of association to represent the United States, Gonzalez was included in the knockout phase roster of the 2017 Gold Cup-winning U.S. side. Still in search of his first cap, Gonzalez appeared on the roster for the USA’s 1-1 draw against then No. 3-ranked Portugal on Nov. 17, 2017 in Leiria.  

U.S. Men's National Team head coach Gregg Berhalter will continue the evaluation process of the MNT pool this month in his second camp in charge. The team building process takes its next steps with challenges against Ecuador on March 21 at Orlando City Stadium, then five days later against two-time defending South American champion Chile on March 26 at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston. [TICKETS] Both matches will be shown live at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN2, UniMas and UDN.

Fans can follow both matches on U.S. Soccer's official Facebook, Twitter (@USMNT) and Instagram (@USMNT) accounts.
