LA MANGA, Spain (March 3, 2016) – The U.S. U-18 Women’s National Team drew with the Denmark U-19 WNT 0-0 in its first of three matches in La Manga, Spain.
The U.S. out-shot Denmark 10-6, but neither team could find the net as Brooke Heinsohn picked up the shutout for the Americans.
The U.S. team, which is made up mostly of players born in 1998, is facing teams made up mostly of 1997s. The USA will face England on March 5 and finish up with Norway on March 7.
All the players who traveled to Spain are age-eligible for the team that will participate in the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup which has an age cut-off of players born on or after Jan. 1, 1996, but the goal for this age group is to ultimately qualify for the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
