U-20 USWNT Playing Time – La Manga 2012

Here’s a tabular summary of the playing time for the Under-20 USWNT at the recent Four Nations Tournament at La Manga, Spain.

As with the recent U-17 camp, these were test matches which allowed for liberal substitutions, so not too much should be read into these numbers. However, as the CONCACAF Women’s U-20 Championship is less than two weeks away, the need to finalize a core line-up and develop on-field chemistry is much higher.

The roster size for this tournament is the same as the CONCACAF championship (20 players), and unless a player has an injury or is unable to compete for non-soccer reasons, then I expect this roster to be the roster for the championship.

Note: Players are sorted by position, then in descending order of playing time.
