U.S. WOMEN: U-21s are off to Europe
April 25th, 2006 5:51PM



The U.S. U-21 womenÆs national team traveled to Europe Tuesday for two matches in the Netherlands and one in Germany. Numerous players who are eligible for the next Nordic Cup are spending time with the full womenÆs national team and the U.S. U-20s, so some new players are being evaluated. The USA will play the Seastum womenÆs club on April 29, the Dutch U-21 women on May 2 in Tiel before leaving for Germany, where the USA will play the Duisburg Bundesliga club. Two players, forward Danesha Adams and midfielder Tobin Heath, will join the U-21s almost directly from Brazil where they played for the U.S. U-20s in the Ricardo Teixeira Cup. It will be the first U-21 call-up for the 17-year-old Heath, a high school senior who will attend North Carolina. Several players could make their international debuts at the U-21 level on this tour; goalkeeper Cori Alexander, defender Lauren Switzer, midfielder Noelle Keselica, Rebecca Moros and Heath, and forwards Katie Griffin and Kelly Hammond.
