U.S. U-21 women finish second in Alabama

The U.S. U-21 women's national team finished second at the 2007 Futbol Internacional Tournament in Alabama, where it fell on penalty kicks to the Canadian Olympic development team in the final after playing to a 0-0 draw in regulation.

The Americans had beaten China's U-21s, 2-0, on goals by Kelsey Carpenter and Kelly O'Hara and the Trinidad & Tobago national team, 2-0, on goals by Angie Woznuk and Carpenter in group play. In the final played in Mobile, former Nebraska goalie Karina LeBlanc stopped U.S. defender Stephanie Logterman on the first U.S. penalty, and it proved to be the difference as both teams made the rest of their penalties. Canada sent a mix of veterans and young players to the six-team tournament put on by the Alabama Youth Soccer Association.

Argentina, which has qualified for the Women's World Cup, sent its full national team, while Mexico also sent a team. Games were played in Birmingham, Decatur, Huntsville, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa before coming to Mobile for the placement games.

U.S. head coach Bill Irwin is preparing the U-21s for the annual Nordic Cup, which this year will be held in Finland July 18-24. The USA won seven Nordic Cup titles in a row before falling last summer to Germany in the title game.
