U-20 USWNT: Roster For 2019 Nike International Friendlies – A Detailed Look

Update (10-Dec-2019):  Washington State sophomore center back Mykiaa Minniss has been added to the roster .  The 5’11 sophomore scored the golden goal over South Carolina to send WSU to the College Cup. (WSUCougars.com)

Update (12-Dec-2019):  South Carolina signee Catherine Barry (profile) is also on the roster.  She was a substitute in Wednesday’s “Red” Team match versus France.

Currently underway in Florida is the final camp of 2019 for the Under-20 United States Women’s National Team, which runs from December 8th to the 14th.  Head coach Mark Carr has called in 31 players, who will be split into two teams to play international friendlies against the U-20 WNTs of France and Brazil.  Of the 31 players, 18 are current college players, with several key players returning for their first camp since the start of the NCAA season.

With just one more camp left before the 2020 CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship, these friendlies are one of Carr’s last chances to evaluate players for the 20-spot qualifying roster.

Four top U-20 players are not available, as they have been called into the overlapping USWNT identification camp:  Forward Sophia Smith, midfielder Brianna Pinto, plus defenders Naomi Girma and Maycee Bell.  Absent injuries or full-time promotions to the senior USWNT, these four players should be on the U-20 qualifying roster.

Update (09-Dec-2019):  Naomi Girma will not attend this camp due to an injury suffered during the College Cup.  Given that she took one of the spot kicks during the penalty shoot-out, the injury is likely to be minor. (U.S. Soccer)

At least three noteworthy players are unavailable due to non-minor injuries:

  • Kate Wiesner (Penn State), a likely starting outside back.  Wiesner suffered a knee injury during a  match versus Virginia on September 15th (collegian.psu.edu). Fellow U-20 player Rebecca Jarrett of UVA was somehow involved.
  • Sophie Jones (Duke), the likely starting holding midfielder (“6”).  Her unspecified injury occurred around the first week in October (goduke.com).
  • Sunshine Fontes (UCLA, redshirt), who started two matches  at the 2018 U-17 WWC.  Fontes suffered a torn ACL during a high school tournament match in early 2019 (khon2.com).

A few quick notables:

  • Three players are attending their first (known) USA youth camp:  UNC forward Isabel Cox, UNC defender Julia Dorsey, and Indiana midfielder Avery Lockwood.
  • This is the first published roster for Oregon midfielder/forward Zoe Hasenauer, who received her first YNT call-up in June for the U-20 camp in Fairfax, Virginia.
  • Cal freshman goalkeeper Angelina Anderson is attending her first U-20 camp of the cycle.
  • Three NCAA forwards with prior YNT call-ups are attending their first U-20 camp of the cycle:  Freshman phenom Diana Ordonez of Virginia, freshman stand-out Anna Podojil of Arkansas, and sophomore Sydny Nasello of South Florida (who also plays in the midfield).
  • Defenders Shae Holmes (U. of Washington) and Ella Shamburger (Vanderbilt) are attending their first U-20 camp of the cycle.

*First published roster
**First published roster, but attended the June 2019 U-20 USWNT camp at Fairfax, Virginia.  Did not play in the two friendlies versus Germany.


DISCUSSION:  NEAR LOCKS, LONG SHOTS, AND IN-BETWEENS

As the roster for the CONCACAF Women’s U-20 Championship is limited to 18 field players and 2 goalkeepers, at least 10 of the 28 field players attending this camp will not make the USA’s roster for the tournament.  The number of players to cut should be around 14, given that 4 of the top U-20 players have been called into the concurrent USWNT ID camp.

And, the number of players cut could be higher if other preferred players not attending this camp are available or become available (e.g., return from minor injuries) for CONCACAF qualifying.

The following is intended to be a brief discussion of the players called into this camp, plus the four U-20 players at the USWNT identification camp, as well as some noteworthy absences.  (A more in-depth discussion of the likely roster for qualifying will be published after this camp.)

* * *

Goalkeepers

Although attending just her first U-20 camp of the cycle, the 5’11” Cal freshman Angelina Anderson is the most likely first-choice ‘keeper.  Or, maybe not.  Anderson started all three 2018 U-17 WWC matches for the USA, ahead of fellow 2001’er Julia Dohle.  Anderson also made the 2018 U-20 WWC roster as a last-minute addition.

Rutgers sophomore Meagan McClelland is another veteran of a U-17 WWC, having been a back-up behind Laurel Ivory at the 2016 edition of that tournament.

Although Dohle is a freshman at Penn State, she has yet to play any competitive NCAA soccer, which could give McClelland a significant advantage in making the qualifying roster.

* * *

Defenders – Center Backs

Stanford sophomore Naomi Girma (starter at 2018 U-20 WWC) and UNC freshman Maycee Bell are all but guaranteed to claim two defender spots on the qualifying roster.  Of the remaining center backs, UVA freshman Talia Staude (starter at 2018 U-17 WWC) has the most YNT experience by a significant margin, though the 6’0″ Cassie Hiatt of Texas Tech has two seasons of NCAA soccer experience.  Another NCAA sophomore is Vanderbilt’s Ella Shamburger, who is apparently attending her first known YNT camp.

For the last two center back options, this is UNC’s Julia Dorsey first-known USA youth call-up and just the third for Michigan State’s Bria Schrotenboer, a 5’11” freshman, who was also one of a few college players to attend the August 2019 U-20 camp at Chula Vista.

The two-sport Dorsey (soccer/lacrosse) is a bit of a curiosity, as she could be a center back candidate and/or an outside back candidate.  In UNC’s 3-5-2 system, she is deployed as an outside defender on the backline, though, before UNC, she primarily played forward and was also used as an outside back (which is also where she played during the 2019 College Cup final).

A noteworthy omission is Boston College freshman Michela Agresti, who started all three matches for the USA at the 2018 U-17 WWC and attended three of the four prior U-20 camps in 2019, including the one just held in November.

* * *

Defenders – Outside Backs

Just two of these seven outside back candidates are currently playing in the NCAA:  Washington redshirt freshman Shae Holmes and true freshman Julia Dorsey of North Carolina.  Both Holmes and Dorsey were born in 2000, while the remaining five were all born in 2002.

This is Holmes’ first YNT call-up since November 2017, as she suffered an ACL injury in her right knee during her senior year of high school and then re-injured the same knee just minutes into her NCAA career, back in August 2018.  (essay by Holmes)  Prior to these injuries, Holmes had attended all U-18 WNT camps held in 2017.

Of the possible outside backs from the 2002 birth year pool, only Harvard-commit Smith Hunter and Rutgers-commit Samantha Kroeger have been regular YNT camp attendees prior to 2019.  Both were heavily involved in the 2018 U-17 USWNT cycle, with Hunter starting 2 matches at the last U-17 WWC, while Kroeger, who had been primarily listed as a forward or midfielder, was a late replacement for the CONCACAF qualifying tournament.  The remaining players, Emily Mason, Quincy McMahon, and Sally Menti, each only have a handful of call-ups.

Another option is UNC-commit Talia DellaPeruta, who is listed on the camp roster as a midfielder, but had been used primarily as an outside back with the U-17 WNT and U-15 GNT.

One curious absence, for the second time in a row, is the highly regarded Clemson-commit Makenna Morris, who started all three matches for the USA at the 2018 U-17 WWC and has attended at least 30 USA youth camps.  Morris had been an attendee of the first three U-20 USWNT camps of 2019, but was not on the November camp roster.

* * *

Midfielders

Near-locks to make the qualifying roster are sophomores Briana Pinto of UNC and Alexa Spaanstra of UVA, who were both on the last U-20 WWC roster, back in 2018.  With the injury to Duke’s Sophie Jones, future Stanford Cardinal Astrid Wheeler is the most obvious candidate for  the starting holding midfielder role (“6”).  Wheeler, who made the 2018 U-17 WWC roster, has attended over 20 YNT camps, including the last four U-20 camps.

The reserve midfielder spots are less certain.  All of the remaining players listed as midfielders only have one or two prior U-20 call-ups this cycle.  Of those players, future Tar Heel Talia DellaPeruta is the only one with official tournament experience, starting one match at the 2018 U-17 WWC and two matches at that year’s CONCACAF Women’s U-17 Championship, plus most matches at the CONCACAF Girls’ U-15 Championship in 2016.

But, as mentioned earlier, DellaPeruta had been mainly used as an outside back  with the U-17 and U-15 national teams.  And, for her two previous call-ups in 2019, the August U-20 and October U-18 camps, she was listed as a forward.  As DellaPeruta has significant international and YNT experience as a defender, she could be a back-up option at the holding midfielder spot.

Another option for the “6” spot is Oregon sophomore Zoe Hasenauer, who is attending just her second YNT camp after a call-up for the June U-20 camp in Fairfax, Virginia.  Primarily a forward in her club days, Hasenauer has been more recently deployed as a midfielder with Oregon.  Though, based on highlight videos, she appears to be used mainly as a “10” or “8” by Oregon.  However, for the U-20 WNT, with her presence and physicality, the 5’6″ Hasenauer looks to be best suited for a holding role.  And, given the other offensive midfield options, being a spare “6” is probably Hasenauer’s best chance of making the qualifying roster.

Of the remaining offensive options, University of Washington forward Summer Yates has the most YNT experience, attending over 25 camps, though almost all of those camps have been with preparatory YNTs (U-18, U-16, U-14), where she has been mostly listed as a midfielder.

Meanwhile, University of Oregon freshman Sakura Yoshida was a regular call-up to the U-18 WNT in the latter half of the previous cycle and is attending her third U-20 camp of 2019, missing only the camps held during the NCAA season.  During the spring of 2019, Yoshida, a Reign Academy product, was invited to trained with Reign FC of the NWSL by now USWNT head coach Vlatko Andonovski (ReignAcademy.com).

Minnesota freshman Katelyn Duong has been on U.S. Soccer’s radar since at least 2013, having attended a U-14 camp in that year, and then the first U-15 camp in 2014.  But, her August 2019 call-up to the U-20s was her first in over four years.

Finally, this is the first-known call-up for long-range scoring threat Avery Lockwood of the Indiana Hoosiers.

A noteworthy absence is Penn State’s Coriana Dyke, who started all 25 of the Nittany Lion’s games in 2019 as a true freshman.  Dyke, a regular call-up in previous U-18 and U-16 cycles, has almost 30 YNT camps, including the first two U-20 camps of this cycle.

* * *

Forwards

Absent another injury or a full-time promotion to the senior USWNT, Sophia Smith will be on the qualifying roster.  However, an open question is whether Mark Carr prefers Smith in the central striker role or as a winger, say with Ordonez as the #9.

Dual-national Rebecca Jarrett, a sophomore at Virginia, has been the most consistently called-up forward this cycle.  Outside of the two camps during the NCAA season, she has only missed the La Manga trip, as she had been called into the England U-19 WNT for the same friendly tournament.

Jarrett’s UVA teammate, the 5’11” Diana Ordonez netted 15 goals over 1184 minutes in her freshman campaign, for an outstanding average of 1.14 goals per 90 minutes played, which is over 50% better than fellow freshman Anna Podojil‘s rate of 0.72 goals per 90 minutes (14 goals, 1740 minutes).   Podojil is attending her first-known U-20 camp after being an attendee of three U-18 camps in 2017.  Meanwhile, Ordonez was a regular call-up during the 2018 U-17 cycle, making the roster for the CONCACAF qualifying tournament but not that year’s U-17 WWC.

Future Virginia Cavalier Lia Godfrey was the youngest player to make the USA’s U-17 WWC roster in 2016 and likely would have made the roster again in 2018 if she had not suffered an ACL injury (sometime in late 2017 or early 2018).

UCLA-commit Trinity Rodman did make the 2018 U-17 WWC roster, appearing as a substitute in the USA’s first two matches and starting their third match.  Born in 2002, the 5’7″ Rodman had the USA’s lone official assist of that tournament.

Of the listed forwards on this camp’s roster, the 2000-born Florida State freshman Jenna Nighswonger, leads the pack with the most camps attended, though prior to 2019, she had been listed exclusively as a midfielder, except for her first three camps (two U-14s in 2014 and a U-17 in 2015), where she was listed as a defender.

High school junior Dilary Heredia-Beltran has been another regular YNT call-up.

Apparently attending their first U-20 camp are South Florida’s Sydny Nasello, who has one previous call-up, and 5’10” UNC freshman Isabel Cox, who offers both speed and high-pressure defending.

A slightly surprising omission on this camp’s roster is Santa Clara’s Isabella D’Aquila, who scored 15 goals in her freshman campaign and was a regular member of the 2018 U-17 USWNT, having made the last U-17 WWC, where she started one match.

Data Notes:

  • Height and date of birth information is primarily pulled from USWNT media guides’ lists of YNT player pools.  Otherwise, additional sources, such as NCAA team profiles (height, sometimes birth date) and U.S. Soccer Development Academy profiles (birth year, high school graduation year) are used.
  • Katelyn Duong’s height is around 5’0″.  Minnesota’s current roster does not have any heights listed.  Duong has been only listed in one USWNT media guide pool list, back in 2014 (U-15).  Per that list, her height was 4’11”.
  • The birth dates for Isabel Cox and Julia Dorsey are from their UNC profiles, which only list the birth month and year.
