Reserves defeated by USA U20 side

Posted by nickogs20 on May 9, 2008

The USA U20 national team travelled to Carrington on Thursday to face the reserves in the second leg of their three-game tour of England, and faced a strong, relatively experienced United lineup warming up for Monday’s Manchester Senior Cup final. The tourists ran out 2-1 winners via a late Perica Marosevic goal, his second of the game – Chris Eagles had cancelled out the Chicago Fire forward’s opener midway through the second half.

No full match report as details are scarcer than a very scarce thing, but there’s a very American match report here, and we do know the United lineup was as follows:


Gray – Chester – Cathcart – Eckersley
Eagles – Cleverley – Possebon – Hewson – S Evans

Subs: Fagan (for Possebon 45), Barnes (for Evans 45), Evans (for Triallist 73)
Scorer: Eagles 72

Thanks to Mr. MUJAC on the redcafe youth/reserves forum for that lineup. No word on who the triallist was yet unfortunately, one to keep an eye on. That isn’t a mistake in the subs list – Séan Evans did come back on for the triallist after having been replaced by Michael Barnes at half-time. Interesting to see Barnes back after Shrewsbury chose not to sign him permanently – more on that (as promised in the last loan roundup) over the weekend.
