United States U17 women’s head coach Mark Carr has named his 21-player roster for the 2018 U17 Women’s World Cup.

GOALKEEPERS (3): Angelina Anderson (Mustang Soccer Club; Danville, Calif.; 14/0), Julia Dohle (New York City FC; Scarsdale, N.Y.; 5/0), Lindsey Romig (IMG Academy; Midlothian, Va.; 9/0)

DEFENDERS (6): Michela Agresti (FC Stars; Swampscott, Mass.; 16/2), Talia DellaPeruta (Tophat; Cumming, Ga.; 24/1), Samar Guidry (FC Dallas; McKinney, Texas; 4/0), Smith Hunter (Reign Academy; Seattle, Wash.; 15/0), Makenna Morris (Bethesda SC; Germantown, Md.; 18/3), Natalia Staude (Tophat; Atlanta, Ga.; 18/0)

MIDFIELDERS (5): Hannah Bebar (Eclipse Select SC; Naperville, Ill.; 12/2), Maya Doms (Davis Legacy Soccer Club; Davis, Calif.; 26/11), Mia Fishel (San Diego Surf; San Diego, Calif.; 26/5), Sophia Jones (San Jose Earthquakes; Menlo Park, Calif.; 16/1), Astrid Wheeler (Concorde Fire; Atlanta, Ga.; 20/2)

The U17 WWC will take place in Uruguay from November 13 - December 1. Fair or not, this team will be performing in the shadow of other recent US youth failures, including the U20 WNT getting bounced from their World Cup in group stage.

Group won’t be any easier for the U17s, who have Cameroon, Korea DPR, and Germany all waiting for them. We’ll see if they can bring a renewed and effective style of play to the tournament; recent results have given them narrow victories over the likes of Mexico and Canada.
