U.S Under-14 Boys National Team head coach Hugo Perez has has bestowed the great honor of inviting United FC B98 Gold (U14) team to play a friendly game versus U14 U.S. National Team at the Home Depot Center.
Head coach Perez has called up 36 players from across the USA to represent the U14 National Team, plus two players currently playing abroad at FC Barcelona in Spain and Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia.
The United FC B98 Gold team, Coached by Bryan Wallace, has been one of the most successful youth team in the history of our club, and has compiled and Incredible record over the past two years including 2011 Surf Champions, 2012 Cal South National Cup Champions, 2012 Dallas Cup Champions, 2012 Far West regional champions, 2011 and 2012 United Cup Champions and 2012 SCDSL South Champions.
Our main theme here at United FC as it relates to our style of play has always been to teach our players how to build and prepare attacks from the back, play combination soccer at all possible times, fluid short passing, play with intense pressure by defending in groups of 3 or more, and attacking soccer from all positions.
Please come out and support our boys and also get a chance to see the future of US Soccer on display.
