Led by U-23 Stars, USMNT Routs … US U-23s

Both Jurgen Klinsmann’s U.S. national team and Caleb Porter’s U.S. U-23 side are in training camps right now, and this past Friday they squared off for a scrimmage at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA.

The senior team won 4-0, but it was an unusual game on at least two counts: first, despite the lopsided scoreline, the U-23s controlled much of the play. Second, most of the senior team’s offense was provided by guys who are age-eligible for the U23s: FC Dallas winger Brek Shea, 21, assisted on the first and fourth goals; New York striker Juan Agudelo, 19, set up the second; and Sporting Kansas City striker Teal Bunbury, 21, scored the third.


Shea, Bunbury, and Agudelo will be with the U23s as they point toward the London Summer Games, beginning with CONCACAF qualifying in March.
