What an unbelievable start it's been to the 2015 Nike Friendlies for Georgia United's Andrew Carleton and Chris Goslin. Unfortunately the United States dropped their opening match to England, but both GU boys scored goals and were vital players for the team. If you missed the goals or the ridiculous skill move by Carleton you should probably click here.
The U.S. U-17 team continues the Nike Friendlies on Friday night against a very strong Netherlands team. They are coming off a convincing 3-0 victory over a little country named Brazil in their opening match. So, yeah, this will be a difficult test for the young Yanks.
The fact that Carleton and Goslin both started and played all 80 minutes (special format for this showcase) just two days ago probably hurts the chances of either of them starting in this one, but you never know. Hopefully one or both get into the match at some juncture.
