[U.S. UNDER-20 WOMEN]The USA was perfect at the 2012 Four Nations Tournament for under-20 national teams in La Manga, Spain, with wins over Germany (1-0), Switzerland (10-0) and Norway (2-0). The Americans included many of college soccer's top young players, but the tournament MVP was high school senior Lindsey Horan, who had four goals.

Horan, who plays for Colorado Rush and has verbally committed to North Carolina, had three goals and two assists in the first hour of the Switzerland game and the lone goal against Germany, the 2010 Under-20 Women's World Cup champion.

Virginia's Morgan Brian, the 2011 Soccer America Freshman of the Year, had a goal and three assists against Switzerland.

The Americans came out and put Norway away early with goals from North Carolina sophomore Kealia Ohai and Stanford freshman Chioma Ubogagu.

The tournament was the last before the USA heads to Panama for the Concacaf Under-20 Qualifying Tournament March 1-11 in Panama City.

The top three teams will go to the 2012 U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan.
