Paris, France (Via US Club Soccer) – The third video journal about the 2019 id2 National Selection International Tour is now available, showing the two matches of the team in France against the teams of the 2005 PSG academy (3-1 loss) and Reims (victory for 3 -0). The national id2 selection team – made up of 18 high level players (17 born in 2005, 1 born in 2006) – is at the end of a two-week trip highlighted by four games against the best academies in Belgium and France.
In the coming days a final video journal will be released, which will complete a memorable experience which was the first time the id2 program went to Belgium and France. Overall, the id2 national selection team ended the international tour with an advantage of 7-6 goals in Belgium and 4-3 in France.
The first video journal introduced the roster, covering the early days of a domestic camp in New Jersey and arriving in Belgium. The second video journal presents the highlights and comments of the id2 Boys program director Gerry McKeown and several players after the team's matches against the Belgian teams KV Mechelen (2 April) and KRC Genk (4 April). This new third video journal includes the highlights of the two French games against PSG (6 April) and Reims (8 April), as well as visits to Paris.
Like their rapid start against KRC Genk, the Americans gained a 1-0 advantage behind a strike by Sebastian Carbajal (Napa United 1839 Academy). He scored at the 11th minute, assisted by Anthony Castor (Soccer Nation KC Academy). But, PSG equalized in the second 25-minute period with a cleverly positioned header. In the third and final frame, the French team took the lead forever after a foul on the controversial with a penalty kick. The PSG has converted that possibility and with a few minutes left in the game, added another goal for the insurance.
"The long-awaited match against PSG, which would have been the best part of our program, was very competitive and I thought we would have the opportunity to win the game," said McKeown. "I was happier with how we played and how we competed. Overall, the game was very good for us, and I thought we had it fixed, and maybe we would have had a better result."
After the PSG game, the delegation made a detour to visit the historic city of Versailles. The following day he continued the cultural dive with a bus trip to Paris and stopped at the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Eiffel Tower. That night, the team enjoyed a Ligue 1 game between PSG and Strasbourg at the Parc des Princes.
In the final match of the tour, the national selection team id2 scored again – a habit that the Americans made in every game of the trip – in view of a 3-0 victory. The first goal was Carbajal in the eighth minute, which was his sixth international four-game program. Daniel Farberov (STA) found the back of the net at 29 & # 39; and then, five minutes later, he assisted Dominic Dubon (Philadelphia Union Youth) for the 3-0 final result.
The roster has 18 players from 17 clubs. These athletes are following in the footsteps of some of the most brilliant stars in the United States in the game. The alumni of the national selection of id2 include: Christian Pulisic (2012), Jonathan Gonzalez (2013), Tyler Adams (2013), Corey Baird (2010) and Timothy Weah (2013). Last month, McKeown named his alumni Best All-Time XI of id2 boys programming.
