U-17 WNT to Play the Haiti U-17 WNT Twice During Training Camp in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.

CHICAGO (Dec. 9, 2017) – The U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team will come together from Dec. 11-16 for a training camp in Lakewood Ranch, Fla., that will feature two full international matches against the Haiti U-17 WNT.

Both the USA and Haiti are preparing for the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship which will be held from April 19-29 in Nicaragua. The tournament will qualify three teams to the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Uruguay.

The roster, which consists of 22 players born in 2001 – the age cut off year for the next U-17 Women’s World Cup -- and four born in 2002, is made up primarily of the core of players who have been a key part of the cycle so far, with several players also getting first looks in a training camp environment.

The USA will face Haiti on Wednesday, Dec. 13 at The Premier Sports Campus at in Lakewood Ranch on a field to be determined with a kick-off at 3 p.m. ET. The second match on Friday, Dec. 15 will take place at the Premier Sports Campus Stadium and will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET. Both games are open to the public with free admission.

“It’s exciting to finish out the 2017 with two games against Haiti,” said U.S. head coach Mark Carr. “As always, we will compete to win both games while working to continue to develop as individuals and as a team. Haiti is a team we could potentially face in qualifying so, once again, we’ll get a valuable snapshot of how we need to improve.”

Forward Jordan Canniff leads the team in scoring this year with six international goals. Midfielder Maya Doms has four goals while forwards Croix Bethune and Payton Linnehan have scored three goals each. Eleven other players have scored this year for the U-17 WNT.

The U-17s have been quite active this year as they prepare for qualifying. The squad has played tournaments in Slovenia/Italy and in China while also defeating England in two games in Portland, Oregon, in late August by a 12-3 aggregate score. The squad traveled to Mexico City in mid-November for two matches against the Mexico U-17 WNT, tying 1-1 and winning 4-0. The U-17s have lost just one of 11 international games this year, that loss coming in a wild back-and-forth 5-4 setback against China in Weifang in July.

“Coming off the Mexico trip, our team is still learning how to always give our best performance regardless of any external circumstance,” Carr said. “We must always be prepared to battle, be ready to play and be ready to take part in the game at its maximum for 90-plus minutes.”

U-20 WNT Rolls Past Finland 10-1 at Nike Friendlies as Kuhlmann Scores Four Goals

LAKEWOOD RANCH, Florida (December 9, 2017) – The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team scored early and often, powering home eight goals in the first half on the way to an impressive 10-1 win against Finland in its second match of the 2017 Women’s Nike International Friendlies.

U.S. head coach Jitka Klimkova made seven changes from the starting lineup that tied England 3-3 on Dec. 7 and this combination of players came out on fire. The USA took a few minutes to find its rhythm, but then scored four goals in a seven-minute span and were up 5-0 before the 25th minute. The USA out-shot Finland 18-2 in the first 45 minutes and 29-3 for the match.

Almost all the U.S. goals were of the spectacular sort as forward Civana Kuhlmann bagged four in the first half, midfielder Savannah DeMelo scored twice and forward Taryn Torres, midfielder Samantha Coffey and midfielder Viviana Villacorta each added single scores. Finland also scored an own goal. Kuhlmann’s final three goals came in the final six minutes of the first half. She was substituted in the 63rd minute.

For Torres, Coffey and Villacorta (who scored the USA’s final goal in the 67th minute), the goals were their first at the U-20 international level. For Torres, her score came in her first U-20 cap and she also got her first career assist.

With the win, the USA sits in first place in the tournament with four points and a plus-9 goal difference. England is second with four points and a plus-1 goal difference. Brazil is in third with 3 points and a plus-3 goal difference while Finland sits in fourth place with zero points and a minus-13 goal difference.

That means the USA will win the tournament with a victory against Brazil if it maintains its edge over England in goal difference. The USA could also win the tournament with a tie, if England ties Finland.

The USA will face Brazil in its tournament finale on Monday, Dec. 11, with a 6:30 p.m. ET kickoff. England and Finland meet at 3:30 p.m. ET Fans can watch both games on ussoccer.com, U.S. Soccer Facebook and on YouTube.

Goal Scoring Rundown:

USA – Taryn Torres (Abigail Kim), 13th minute: The USA scored its first goal from the right flank as Abigail Kim raced into the right side of the penalty box, rode the tackle of a defender and struck a short, but powerful cross to the top of the six-yard box that was brilliantly redirected into the net by Taryn Torres on a blistering left-footed full volley. USA 1, FIN 0.

USA – Savannah DeMelo (Samantha Coffey) 15th minute: The USA’s second goal came from the left flank, and this time it was team captain Samantha Coffey who crossed on the ground to the near post where a cutting Savannah DeMelo deftly hit a spinning shot from nine years out just inside the near post. USA 2, FIN 0.

USA – Civanna Kuhlmann (Isabel Rodriguez), 17th minute: The USA’s third goal came from the left flank as left back Isabel Rodriguez lofted a cross that fell to Civana Kuhlmann near the top of the penalty area. Finland goalkeeper Sonja Rajatalo made a bad decision and came for the cross, allowing Kuhlmann’s high looping header to bounce in front of the goal line and then into the roof of the net. USA 3, FIN 0.

USA – Samantha Coffey (Taryn Torres), 20th minute: A nice build-up down the right side led the USA’s fourth goal as Abigail Kim once again beat a defender down the right flank. Her cross on the ground was poorly cleared and Civana Kuhlmann won the ball, played it quickly to Taryn Torres in the middle of penalty area and she laid the ball back to Samantha Coffey at the top of the box. Coffey wasted no time in smacking a low, left-footed drive into the right corner past the unsighted Rajatalo. USA 4, FIN 0.

FIN – Tessa Rinkinen, 24th minute: Finland pulled a goal back after the USA failed to clear a cross from the left flank despite several whacks at the ball. Tessa Rinkinen dug the ball out of a scrum and forced it over the goal line from close range to break the shutout. USA 4, FIN 1.

USA – Savannah DeMelo (Viviana Villacorta), 37th minute: DeMelo bagged her second on a shot from distance after receiving a shot pass from Viviana Villacorta in the center of the field. She spun towards goal and launched a shot from 33 yards out that grazed the post at the upper left corner before settling into the net. It was her fourth goal at the U-20 level in 22 caps. USA 5, FIN 1.

USA – Civana Kuhlmann (Taryn Torres), 40th minute: Kuhlmann got her second of the game after Taryn Torres sent a perfect chip from just outside the left edge of the penalty box to the far post. The crashing Kuhlmann bravely powered a diving header into the left side of the net to start her three-goals in six minutes run. USA 6, FIN 1.

USA – Civana Kuhlmann (Savannah DeMelo), 43rd minute: The seventh goal was a work of art as Savannah DeMelo scooped a pass over two defenders to the streaking Civana Kuhlmann who brought the ball down in stride on her chest at the top of the penalty area, took a few strides and then hit a blistering half-volley that hit off the goalkeeper’s hands, flew over her and bounced into the net. USA 7, FIN 1.

USA – Civana Kuhlmann (Isabel Rodriguez), 45th minute: Kuhlmann bagged her fourth on another stunning finish. Isabel Rodriguez crossed from deep on the left flank and the ball skidding all the way across to the right side of the penalty area. Kuhlmann settled with her first touch and then hit a scorching half-volley from 20 yards out that skipped off the wet grass in front of the net and stuck into the lower left corner. USA 8, FIN 1.

USA – Juulia Gronlund (Own Goal), 64th minute: Finland was holding on well to start the second half before defender Juulia Gronlund tried to make a simple pass back to her goalkeeper, but instead pushed it past her and it rolled into the open net. USA 9, FIN 1.

USA – Viviana Villacorta (Abigail Kim), 67th minute:  The USA took a free kick short on the left wing. The ball was then crossed into the middle where Abigail Kim headed the ball down to an unmarked Viviana Villacorta who hit a crisp half-volley into the net from six-yards out. USA 10, FIN 1. FINAL.

Additional Notes:

  • Civana Kuhlman, who scored a hat trick against Paraguay in the opening game of the 2017 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, became the first female U.S. U-20 player to score four goals in an international game, although several players accomplished the feat when this age group played at the Under-19 level. Kuhlmann, a freshman at Stanford, also won an NCAA Championship with the Cardinal last Sunday.
  • In CONCACAF qualifying for the 2002 U-19 Women’s World Cup, Kelly Wilson and Lindsey Tarpley both scored four against Suriname, and Wilson also scored four against Costa Rica. In 2003, Bristyn Davis scored four in a friendly against Canada. Kia McNeil scored four goals against the Dominican Republic in 2004 CONCACAF Qualifying.
  • Abigail Kim, Isabel Rodriguez and Taryn Torres each had two assists in the match. The assists for the first for Rodriguez and Torres at the U-20 level.
  • Defender Sydney Dawson, who was a halftime substitute, saw her first minutes of the tournament.
  • U.S. head coach Jitka Klimkova used all six substitutes, also giving second half minutes to Brewster, Howell, Pinto and Harr, all starters in the first game against England. In addition, midfielder Kornieck came on at halftime with Dawson.
  • Samantha Coffey, who captained the USA for the first time, picked up her second assist of the tournament.
  • The age cutoff to be eligible for the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup is players born on or after January 1, 1998. For this event, Klimkova called up nine players born in 1998, 11 born in 1999 and four born in 2000, making them also age-eligible for the 2020 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
  • Sophia Smith, who was rested for this match, has eight international goals this year, but Kuhlmann pulled even with her after tonight’s performance. 
  • Smith has earned the rare distinction of scoring for three different age group National Teams this year. In February, she scored for the U-18 WNT against England and Norway. For the U-20 WNT, she has scored against Norway (twice), Germany (twice), France, Japan and England (twice). For the U-23 WNT, she scored against Norway as well as the game-winner against the Portland Thorns.
  • Midfielder Savannah DeMelo earned her 22nd cap, which is tops on the roster, and had her first brace for the U-20 WNT.

England Defeats Brazil 1-0 at 2017 Women’s Nike International Friendlies

LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. (December 9, 2017) – The England Under-20 Women’s National Team used a 50th minute goal from Alessia Russo to earn a 1-0 win against Brazil in the first game on the second match day at the 2017 Women’s Nike International Friendlies.

Brazil controlled the game for much of the first half with two of its best opportunities coming in the 23rd minute, a powerful shot from Kerolin that England’s Sandy McIver did well to push out of bounds, and again in the 28th minute, when Victoria’s attempt sailed just over the crossbar. England’s McIver, who plays college soccer at Clemson, had five saves in the match to earn the clean sheet.

Russo, who plays college soccer at the University of North Carolina, scored on a counter attack after Charlie Wellings sprinted down the left wing and split a pair of defenders with her squae pass. Russo was wide open and had time to settle the ball before powering her right-footed shot past the helpless Brazil goalkeeper Kemelli and into the left side of the net.

England will close out the tournament against Finland on Monday, Dec. 11 (3:30 p.m. ET) while Brazil is set to take on the USA at 6:30 p.m. ET on the final day of the 2017 Women’s Nike International Friendlies.

U.S. U-20 WNT Opens 2017 Nike Friendlies with 3-3 Draw vs. England

LAKEWOOD RANCH, Florida (Dec. 7, 2017) – The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team drew 3-3 with England to open the 2017 Women’s Nike International Friendlies as the teams traded goals throughout the match.

In the 90th minute, England cancelled out what looked to be an 87th minute game-winner from Sophia Smith as forward Alessia Russo, who plays at the University of North Carolina, headed a corner kick off the hand of U.S. goalkeeper Laurel Ivory and off the underside of the crossbar. As the ball fell, Ivory batted it away from the goal, but the assistant referee ruled that the ball had crossed the line.

The match was played in front of a standing-room only crowd of more than 2,000 fans at the Premier Sports Campus and they were treated to a tremendously entertaining game and six goals as the USA took three leads only for England to come back and equalize each time.

Smith opened the scoring in the 19th minute off an assist from her Real Colorado club teammate Jaelin Howell, but England answered back almost immediately with a score from Ellie Brazil, who plays for Fiorentina in Italy’s top division. Brazil went off with an injury soon after, leaving the game in the 25th minute.

The USA took the lead off a set play as captain Zoe Morse worked hard to keep the ball alive inside the penalty area and England defender Grace Fisk knocked it into her own net Fisk plays collegiately at the University of South Carolina.

Smith had two more golden chances on shots from distance in the first half, but her 7th minute blast from 25 yards and her low drive from the top of the penalty area in the 39th minute were both parried away with excellent saves from England goalkeeper Ellie Roebuck, who played a stellar game.

England came out with more initiative in the second half and got an equalizer in the 54th minute as Anne Patten got behind the defense and slipped a shot inside the right post.

In the 73rd minute, Roebuck, who plays for Manchester City, pulled off a brilliant double-save. Second half substitute Civana Kuhlmann worked her way free at the top of the penalty area and blasted a shot that was headed into the lower right corner before Roebuck got a hand to it. Samantha Coffey had a chance to follow-up on the rebound, but Roebuck pushed that shot wide of the left post.

In the 86th minute, Ivory made what looked to be a crucial save, batting away hard point-blank shot from Rinsola Babajide to set up Smith’s second goal on the USA’s next foray down the field.

Smith then bagged her brace in the 87th minute, but England did not quit. Right after a stoppage in play when Roebuck had to be replaced due to a knock she took earlier in the game, England equalized.

Up next for the USA is a match against Finland, 4-0 losers to Brazil in the first match of the evening, on Dec. 9 at 6:30 p.m. ET. Fans can watch on ussoccer.com, Facebook and YouTube. Brazil sits in first place after the first match day with three points. The USA and England one each from the draw and Finland has zero.

Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Sophia Smith (Jaelin Howell), 19th minute: The USA opened the scoring when Howell won a ball in midfield and raced at the England goal, putting the back line on its heels. Smith made a dynamic run behind the defense and Howell slipped the perfect pass into the left side of the penalty area. Smith sent into a slide to cut her rolling left-footed shot into the lower right corner from eight yards out. USA 1, ENG 0. 

USA – Ellie Brazil (Lotte Wubben-Moy,) 20th minute: England struck back almost immediately, catching the U.S. back line with a long ball over the top from Lotte Wubben Moy. The ball took a nice skip into the path of Ellie Brazil, who dribbled around U.S. goalkeeper Laurel Ivory and slotted the ball into an open net, behind defender Naomi Girma, who overran the shot while scrambling to cover. USA 1, ENG 1.

USA – Own Goal (Grace Fisk), 25th minute: The USA took the lead again off a free kick from the right flank that was sent in dangerously by Jordan Brewster. Zoe Morse battled with her defender at the far post and was able to toe-poke the ball across the face of the goal on the dewy field. Grace Fisk stuck out her right boot while attempting to clear, but inadvertently knocked the ball off her own goalkeeper and into the net. USA 2, ENG 1.

USA – Anne Patten (Alessia Russio), 54th minute: England won a clearance from U.S. goalkeeper Laurel Ivory on its right flank and the ball fell to Alessia Russio. She turned quickly and played a pass behind the defense to Anne Patten who slipped her shot just inside the right post to tie the score. USA 2, ENG 2.

USA – Sophia Smith (Samantha Coffey), 87th minute: The game could have gone either way when Smith came up with a piece of magic. Substitute Samantha Coffey played a ball into the left side of the penalty area for Smith, who beat her defender to the outside and smashed her shot into the roof of the net for the game-winner. USA 3, ENG 2.

USA –  Alessia Russio (Mayumu Pacheco), 90th minute: In perhaps fitting fashion for the back-and-forth game, England tied the match in the 90th minute off a corner kick when Alessia Russio headed the ball out of a pack of players, off the hand of U.S. goalkeeper Laurel Ivory, off the underside of the crossbar, and according to the assistant referee, just over the goal line before it was swatted away by Ivory. USA 3, ENG 3. FINAL
