Do you know how the Chinese U20's are and how the USA should fair against them?

Anonymous

Here are two articles from October relating to AFC qualifying.

Hosts China PR booked their appearance in breath-taking fashion after edging Japan on goal difference to take third place. 

China had two wins in qualifying, 2-1 over Australia and 8-0 over Myanmar. So the Chinese really only had one win of significance in the tournament. I don’t think they will be a cakewalk, and playing China will be a good test outside of CONCACAF, but the US is going to need to face some European sides before the World Cup. Hopefully there is something planned to that effect, otherwise they are missing an important opportunity in La Manga.

anyone gonna be in Florida to update us on games, changes in the lineup, etc? curious to see how pugh affects the lineup in the midfield if she plays

Update on La Manga: the US is sending the U-18s.

How was Waldrum leaving related to the pre-tournament roster analysis? An interesting note, the FL camp positions listed the same as the tourney roster (Amack, a defender; Sullivan & Roccaro, midfielders), but not the actual positions they played in the tourney.

Pre-tournament thoughts didn’t really take Waldrum into account. It’s a psychological angle that I think needs to be factored in as a possible distraction to the Notre Dame players. 

Great pics, keep them coming. What are your thoughts on team strengths and weaknesses in retrospect as compared to your comments in the post Dec 30? Seems the defense and midfield was changed up.

The approach to defense and the midfield was… intriguing, to say the least. It’s kind of hard to judge, though, with as often as the lineup changed. Lavelle was a good surprise. Waldrum leaving the Irish was a bad surprise. I still maintain Weber has the potential to make an impact, even if they keep her coming off the bench. I intend to ask about the defense if I get a chance to speak to the coaching staff. I’m really curious as to why certain decisions were made, and whether French was making the decisions or if it was Heinrichs/Ellis.
