US Soccer invites 11 MLS academy products to Bradenton


Eleven players representing seven MLS youth academies have earned slots in US Soccer’s prestigious Bradenton Residency Program for the upcoming fall semester, with Chivas USA and the New York Red Bulls contributing a league-best three players each.

RBNY is represented by Evan Louro, Christopher Lema and Wesley Wade, all members of the Red Bulls U-15/16 team that won the US Soccer Federation Development Academy championship last month. Meanwhile, Chivas USA will send defenders Adonis Amaya (Westminster, Calif.) and Malcolm Jones (Chino Hills, Calif.), as well as striker Bradford Jamieson (Los Angeles), three of the 12 California products on the roster.

Williams named 31 players in all, most of them 1996-born, with four ‘97s rounding out the group. The former D.C. United star is gearing up for the 2013 CONCACAF U-17 Championship, which takes place April 6-19 in Panama and will serve as the regional qualifying tournament for the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup

US Under-17 national team in Aegean Cup title game after wins over France and Norway


he US Under-17 national team’s time at the Aegean Cup couldn’t have gotten off to a better start.

Behind the stellar play of LA Galaxy Academy forward Haji Wright (above), the Yanks defeated five-time defending champion France 2-1 on a dramatic last-minute penalty kick goal by Christian Pulisic on Monday in Manisa, Turkey. The US then cruised to a 5-2 victory on Tuesday over Norway to secure a place in the tournament’s championship game this weekend.

In a tournament that gives the US a chance to measure itself in international competition, it’s so far so good for head coach Richie Williams, the former MLS player who also led the U-17s to the 2013 Nike International Friendlies tournament title in December.
