FRISCO, Texas (March 30, 2017) – The month of March has been good to the U.S. Soccer Under-20 Men and Women’s National Teams. The Men’s U-20 team won the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship, securing a spot at the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup, while the Under-20 Women’s National Team went 2-1 in the La Manga Tournament in Spain.
Coy Craft, who was signed as the 12th Homegrown player for FC Dallas in 2014, appeared in all six matches at forward for the red white and blue, and the former FC Dallas Youth player scored one of the shootout goals that ultimately helped the U.S. U-20 side defeat Honduras in the finals.
Craft is a former North Texas Soccer and US Youth Soccer Region III Olympic Development Program (ODP) player and competed on the Region III team at the 2011 US Youth Soccer ODP Thanksgiving Interregional. Craft also reached the Under-19 Gordon Jago Super Group semifinals of the 2016 Dr Pepper Dallas Cup with FC Dallas.
Jordan Harr appeared in all three matches for the U-20 Women’s National Team in Spain and started in wins against Norway and France. The Sachse, Texas native would score the USA’s eventual game-winner in an 8-2 win over Norway in the tournament’s opening match.
Harr, a two-time Gatorade Texas Player of the Year, has been a part of the U.S. U-20 National Team pool since 2015. The North Texas Soccer ODP alum also represented Region III at the 2012 US Youth Soccer ODP Thanksgiving Interregional. The former Dallas Sting star was named to the Big 12 All-Freshman team after completing her freshman season at Texas Tech University.
