U.S. Under-20 National Team

France U-20s 2, USA 1: The Highlights

Conor Doyle scored again, but the United States Under-20 national team fell to France in their second meeting of the week to wrap up the team's mini-camp in Europe. Here are the highlights:

  • Rory

    Ives, why isn’t the US participating in the soccer tournament at the Pan Am games in Mexico this fall (October)? It is a U22 tournament so it would be a nice shot to see some youngsters and maybe players on the verge in the 20-21 year old bracket.

    Shame we’re not there since our U20’s crashed out of the qualifying for the U20 WC.


  • Eafraco

    Excellent free-kick by USA. Really was a thing of beauty. But agreed with the post above – defending from the Americans was a fright.


  • Tim

    Doyle does seem to have a nose for the ball, or at least puts himself in position to score (think thats 3 games in a row)


  • Pgloerse

    Loved that Doyle didn’t try and kill it into the net. Nice composure. Left Back looks like no help in the immediate future…that last goal for France was a gimme.


  • brad

    far side! far friggin side boys! are we really that bad at ball watching and getting sucked out of position or does france have forwards that make runs beyond their maturity?


  • Michael Stypulkoski

    Great save from the French keeper, and some horrible defending by the Americans, particularly on the second goal.


  • Dainja

    wow, what’s with the Godfather music starting up at 1:55?? Its almost like they knew…it was bout to be murda for the US.


  • FulhamNick

    Wow seriously terrible defending…most of these guys are professionals or close to it and they are flocking to the ball like a bunch of 10 year olds
