U-20 WNT Falls to England 1-0 at 2016 U-20 Women's NTC Invitational

CARSON, Calif. (Sept. 16, 2016) – The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team lost 1-0 to England in the second match for both teams at the 2016 U-20 Women’s NTC Invitational. Brazil and the Korea Republic drew 1-1 in the first match of the evening which means England wins the tournament after just two games. England has the full six points from two matches while the Korea Republic is in second place with two points from two draws.

As happened against the Korea Republic in the 0-0 draw to open the tournament, the USA had a large portion of possession and put consistent pressure on the opponent’s goal in the second half, but once again could not manufacture a goal.

After U.S. forward Jessie Scarpa had a goal disallowed for offside in the 65th minute, England scored the only goal of the game a bit against the run of play. Sarah Mayling was able to shake loose from a U.S. defender on the right side and played a cross on the ground in front of the U.S. goal. U.S. goalkeeper Casey Murphy, who once again had a solid match in the U.S. nets, dove but could not get enough of the ball to turn it out of danger and Coral-Jade Haines bundled the ball into an open net.    

Mallory Pugh, a member of the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team who became the youngest American soccer player to score in an Olympic Games, entered the match in the 75th minute and immediately put pressure on the England back line. Pugh, who is at the tail end of her recovery from an ankle injury suffered in the Olympics, had several dangerous forays down the right side and an excellent chance to score when she latched onto a loose ball in the England defensive third, but shot directly at the goalkeeper.

The final match day of the tournament is on Sept. 18 when the Korea Republic plays England (1 p.m. PT) and the USA faces Brazil (4 p.m. PT). All the matches are being played on the Glenn “Mooch” Myernick Field at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. Admission is free and all the games are being streamed live on ussoccer.com.

The USA, Brazil and the Korea Republic are currently preparing for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup which will be held in Papua New Guinea from November 13-Dec. 3. England did not qualify. The USA is in Group C in PNG with France, Ghana and New Zealand.

Players eligible for the 2016 U-20 Women’s NTC Invitational must have been born on or after Jan. 1, 1996, which is the age cut-off for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

French Q&A: U-20 Women's NTC Provides Quality World Cup Warm Up

Ahead of the 2016 U-20 Women’s NTC Invitational at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center in Los Angeles that features the USA, Korea Republic, England and Brazil, U.S. U-20 WNT head coach Michelle French discusses the upcoming matches and the importance of final preparations prior to the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Papua New Guinea November.

ussoccer.com: How important are these NTC tournaments for your team in terms of development and evolution throughout cycles?
MICHELLE FRENCH: “They are extremely important. The fact that we get to host three fantastic countries in the lead up to the World Cup gives these players international experience without actually having to travel abroad. To add on to that, they’re playing in front of their family and friends and an American crowd. They don’t get that very often. The opportunity to get to play in these games, learn different styles of play, see different styles of play, it’s massive for them.”

ussoccer.com: How do you feel that these particular matches will replicate the kind of challenges that you’ll face against the likes of France, New Zealand, and Ghana?
MF: “The biggest thing is that we’re having to adjust and adapt and see these different styles of play. Because we’re having the opportunity to do that, it’s not going to be foreign to us when we play these other teams. You’ve got a European team, an Asian team, and an athletic team in Brazil, so it matches up with our group and worked out well for us.”

ussoccer.com: Can you take us through the final stages of preparation heading into a World Cup?
MF: “We’re actually extremely fortunate that with our last two camps before we head out to Australia for our pre-tournament training camp that we’re going to have five international matches. We’ve got the NTC tournament and then two against Venezuela in October in Florida, so as best we can with the bodies we have available, we’re going to try to fine-tune a lot of things that we’ve been working on during this entire cycle.”

ussoccer.com: What have been the main points of focus over the last few training camps?
MF: “There’s been a ton of focus on our attacking shape, positioning players in spots where we feel we have the greatest opportunity to be successful moving the ball and keeping possession. Also, we’re really compacting our lines defensively and really focusing on the communication piece with this group. If we can do those things we can be successful.”

ussoccer.com: What are your main goals and objectives for the NTC Invitational tournament, other than winning? What are the biggest things you want to get out of these matches?
MF: “We want to get out of here without any more injuries. That’s the biggest thing for us right now. We’ve had a lot of meetings and conversations about how we’re going to manage the healthy players that we have. We’ve had to bring in five new players that have never played with our group before, so our biggest focus is making sure that we are getting our healthy players the experience and the minutes they need to start to build their game minutes as best we can. At the same time, with only one day between each of these games, we have to be extremely thoughtful of how we’re taking care of the players we have.”

ussoccer.com: The majority of the squad was at the NTC tournament last year. What have the newer players who’ve come in done to force their way into the squad, especially at such an important time?
MF: “They now have another full college season under their belt prior to the last NTC Invitational, and they’ve also got another six months of trainings where they’ve been in our environment. Physically, their bodies have matured. Mentally, they are more locked in than they were a year ago. Their overall understanding of the game, not only from our environment but from their college environment as well, has helped them and prepared them to come into this environment and do well.”

ussoccer.com: Mallory Pugh, Rose Chandler, and Kaleigh Riehl were a part of the 2014 U-20 World Cup squad. What does it mean to have players who have already been through this and how do you see them already helping out the players who haven’t gone through this cycle yet?
MF: “The one thing that those three players can share is what it’s like to be there and what you can expect. I know that they all had nerves last year and with the exception of Mal (Pugh), the other two didn’t play. They’ve played that role of being at a World Cup and understanding that it’s not their job to be the one that’s going to go score goals, but they’ve got to do things off the field that’s going to help each of their teammates get better. I think they’ve done an extremely good job sharing their stories and helping these players become prepared.”

Five Things To Know: U.S. U-20 Women's NTC Invitational

Starting on Wednesday, Sept. 14, U.S. Soccer will host the U-20 Women’s NTC Invitational at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. The four-team tournament includes: Brazil, England, Korea Republic, and the hosts, the United States. The tournament will consist of three days of competition with two games on each day. With the 2016 U-20 FIFA Women’s World Cup just a few months away, the event will feature top-notch talent and will serve as preparation for several teams ahead of the World Cup. Here are five things to know about the tournament:

Some of Best Teenagers In The World at U.S. Soccer’s NTC Invitational

Fans can see some of the best teenage players in the world during the NTC Invitational, on all four teams, perhaps including some players who may one day feature for the U.S. Women’s National Team. The U-20 Women’s World Cup has long been a proving ground for future U.S. WNT players. Of the 18 players and four alternates on the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team, 16 played in a FIFA U-19 or U-20 Women’s World Cup, with nine winning one: Heather O’Reilly and Ashlyn Harris in 2002, Alex Morgan, Megan Klingenberg and Alyssa Naeher in 2008 and Morgan Brian, Julie Johnston, Samantha Mewis and Crystal Dunn in 2012.

The USA is Prepping for the 2016 FIFA U-20 WWC (So are Korea and Brazil)

The USA, Brazil and the Korea Republic are using this tournament to prepare for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup which will be held in the unique locale of Papua New Guinea from Nov. 13-Dec. 3. England did not qualify for the World Cup. The USA and Brazil have participated in all seven of the FIFA U-19/U-20 Women’s World Cups that have been contested thus far. Korea Republic will be playing in their fourth consecutive FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in 2016. In PNG, Brazil is in Group A with host Papua New Guinea, Sweden and Korea DPR. The USA is in Group C with France, Ghana and New Zealand. The Korea Republic is in Group D with Germany, Mexico and Venezuela.

Free Parking, Free Admission, Free Stream

Parking and admission are free to all three double-headers of the 2016 NTC Invitational. Fans are encouraged to park in Lot 10, but then must walk to the main entrance to the Glenn “Mooch” Myernick Field, which is adjacent to Gate A (Southwest Gate) of StubHub Center and allows easy access to the seating area. In addition, all six matches of the tournament will be streamed live on ussoccer.com as Marc Serber and Jen Karson will call the action. Each of the match days – Sept. 14, 16 and 18 – will feature a doubleheader with the USA playing the second game of the day. The winner of the competition will be based on total points with the first tiebreakers being overall goal difference and then total goals scored.

USA U-20 Women’s World Cup Roster to be Named Soon

U.S. head coach Michelle French has yet to officially name the 21-player roster for the 2016 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup, but the players in this tournament, many of whom have chosen to red-shirt this college season, will likely make up the roster once it is finalized. The USA’s roster for this tournament includes some of the top college-age players in the country, including four players from the 2015 NCAA Champion Penn State. The USA has two 6-foot-1 goalkeepers in Brooke Heinsohn and Casey Murphy. Players eligible for the 2016 U-20 Women’s NTC Invitational must have been born on or after Jan. 1, 1996, which is the age cut-off for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. Midfield/forward Ashley Sanchez, who helped the USA qualify for the Women’s World Cup by scoring three goals with five assists at the qualifying tournament in Honduras, is not with the U-20s for this event as she is with the U.S. U-17 WNT preparing for the upcoming U-17 Womens World Cup in Jordan. She will be available for selection for the 2016 U-20 Women’s World Cup Team.

Mallory Pugh in Action

2016 Olympian Mallory Pugh has been training with the U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team during their camp at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center in Carson, which started on Sept. 1. Pugh, who was a starter at age 16 for the USA in the 2014 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada, captained the USA to its 2016 World Cup berth during the CONCACAF qualifying event at the end of last year in Honduras (Pugh is also age-eligible for the 2018 U-20 FIFA Women’s World Cup). Pugh, who is still working to make a complete recovery from an ankle injury suffered in the last game of the Olympics, may be available to play in the USA’s first match of the tournament against the Korea Republic on Sept. 14.

French Names Training Camp Roster Prior to 2016 U-20 Women's NTC Invitational

CHICAGO (Aug. 25, 2016) – U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team head coach Michelle French has named 20 players to the roster for an almost three-week training camp that will conclude with the 2016 U-20 Women’s NTC Invitational as the U.S. team enters its final stages of preparations for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s world Cup.

The winner of the competition will be based on total points with the first tiebreakers being overall goal difference and then total goals scored.

The USA, Brazil and the Korea Republic are currently preparing for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup which will be held in Papua New Guinea from November 13-Dec. 3. England did not qualify. Admission to the matches and parking is free to the public. All the matches will be streamed live on ussoccer.com.

In addition, French will bring in three players to train who have seen most of their National Team action this year with the U.S. U-18 WNT in defender Julie Doyle (San Diego Surf; Laguna Niguel, Calif.), midfielder Shea Moyer (FC Revolution; Wyomissing, Penn.) or forward Parker Goines (TSC Hurricane; Broken Arrow, Okla.).
