Nguyen with his most recent club in Vietnam

Richardson, Texas, native Lee Nguyen is just 23 years old but his professional soccer career has already spanned three teams on two continents. The midfielder, who in 2007 was called “the best-kept secret” in U.S. soccer, also had a training stint at Arsenal earlier this year. He may now be close to adding a fourth country (that of his birth) and third continent (North America) to his resume. ASN traded a few emails with Nguyen recently to grill him on these and other topics. Here the result of our talks.

U-17s lose to 10-man Spain, 2-1

Posted on 27 October 2009 by ASN Staff

In Kano, Nigeria, the U.S. U-17 Men’s National Team fell in their opening round match against Spain 2-1, despite an early red card to Spanish defender Sergi Gomez and a Jack McInerney strike in the fourth minute. Spain managed to take the lead with two counter-attacking goals in the 22nd and 30th minutes. The Spanish side withstood several late second-half chances by the U.S. to get the win as the game was broken up by lighting outages on two occasions. The result leaves the United States in third in Group E, and they will look to rebound with a win against fourth place Malawi on Oct. 29 at 11 a.m. ET.

Germany make Leberwurst out of U.S. at U-20 World Cup

Posted on 26 September 2009 by ASN Staff

US U-20 midfielder Brek Shea

The German U-20 national team easily defeated their American counterparts 3-0 in the first match for both teams at the FIFA World Cup in Egypt Saturday.

The U.S. started auspiciously, with sloppy defensive errors, briefly regained their balance then gave up a penalty kick that was easily converted by Semih Aydilek. Germany doubled its lead two minutes later after more suspect defending by the Yanks. Behind Brek Shea (here in the colors of his club team, FC Dallas), one of the team’s best player on the day, the U.S. tried to put the German goal under pressure in the second half. Around the hour mark they made some real progress in this regard, with Jared Jeffrey hitting a long range shot off the crossbar on 67 minutes. Five minutes later, a pair of German substitutes combined for Germany’s third goal, sealing the match. Thomas Rongen’s side now has a lot to think about ahead of their second game, against Cameroon Tuesday.

ASN’s Adam Rozsa filed the following match report and supplied player ratings for the U.S.
