U.S. U-17 girls rout England twice

The U.S. U-17 girls national team, coached by Mark Carr, beat England twice in Oregon, 6-1 and 6-2. Nine players scored for the USA in the two games.

FC Dallas’ Diana Ordonez and Payton Linnehan of FC Stars of Mass scored twice each in the 6-2 victory. Isabella D'Aquila of So Cal Blues scored a goal in both games.

"It was a good week of learning and improvement in Portland,” said Carr. “I feel like we are in a good place with our team. …  We don’t have a camp in September so the players will get some quality time with their club teams and can focus on improving and continuing to prepare themselves for our October camp.

"With the World Cup Qualifying tournament set for the end of April in 2018, we now have a solidified target and I know the players will be motivated and committed to constantly improving themselves."
