U-20 USMNT suffers loss in friendly vs. RailHawks

U.S. Soccer logo


The Under-20 U.S. Men’s National Team played the first of three May friendlies on Tuesday, and it will surely be hoping for better results in the next two.

The U.S. got off to a losing start in its training camp in North Carolina by suffering a 2-1 loss to the Carolina RailHawks on Tuesday night. Aaron King and Leo Osaki scored on each side of halftime to put the NASL club ahead 2-0, but Conor Donovan found Ian Harkes in the 69th minute to trim the deficit in half.

The U.S. next faces the RailHawks Under-23 team on Thursday evening before playing the Wilmington Hammerheads on Saturday.

What do you think of the U-20 USMNT losing to the RailHawks? Do you see them bouncing back on Thursday?

    meh doesnt mean a lot. the main u-20 squad wasnt playing

    • Carlos says:

      well, it means a lot when we beat a club team in the Dallas cup. This is just as meaningful

  2. William the Terror says:

    Ian Harkes? Any relation to John? If so, hope his teammates are keeping an eye on their girlfriends.

  3. Charles says:

    Don’t believe Tab Ramos is in North Carolina.

    • bogie8 says:

      You are correct. Tab is with the MNT at Stanford. Brian Bliss is coaching the team in these matches.

  4. JD says:

    It means nothing. The game was boys versus men.

  5. Don the Jewler says:

    Maybe it means the quality of play in the USL is pretty good

  6. jimcrist says:

    Not even the Railhawks top team, lot of kids playing up from their U-23 squad. And they play in the NASL.

  7. Del Griffin says:

    MLS kind of sucks.

    NASL is worse than MLS.

    U20 lost to NASL team.

    Our U20 team blows.

    • Jesse says:

      Right and following your logic:

      Galaxy beat Juventus last summer.
      Juventus went on to win Serie A

      The Galaxy would win Serie A if they played in that league!

    • dman says:

      I bet there is not a U20 team in the world that can beat any MLS team.
      1. have you watched MLS lately?
      2. Men vs Boys
