[U.S. UNDER-17 WOMEN] Coach Albertin Montoya has called up 24 players to what is the final event for the U.S. under-17 women's national team before it enters Concacaf qualifying for the 2012 U-17 Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan. Six players who did not travel to Spain for the Ten Nations Tournament will be brought back in for one final look April 1-10 at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. All six have previous experience with the U-17s: Joanna Boyles (Chelsea Ladies), Caroline Chagares (PDA Slammers), Gabrielle Matulich (MVLA Lightning), Kayla Mills (Slammers FC), Arielle Ship (Real So Cal) and Darian Jenkins (Sparta SC).

The qualifying tournament will be held in Guatemala from May 2-12 and will send three countries to the third World Cup for U-17 women to be held Sept. 22-Oct. 13. Montoya will choose a roster of 20 players to travel to Guatemala, where the USA will face Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago and the Bahamas in group play.

    There is a player that should definitely be on this roster, and Montoya should know about her. #4 on Castro Valley United GU16: http://rankings.gotsport.com/rankings/team.aspx?TeamID=335441 There seems to be so little real quality at this age, and I rarely see a real difference-maker. I watched her take apart a very good Deanza midfield at a recent tournament. Fans of the game always say, "I know this great player", and the pundits uniformly discount these claims. Well, this girl is just hardwired differently, and while very raw, has the makings of a really top midfielder. I have no idea who she is, but she's the real deal.
