Steve Swanson, the U.S. U-20 women's national team coach has had two weeks to evaluate his crop of talent in the latest camp at the Olympic Training Center. Now, he has choices to make and a team to build for the upcoming CONCACAF Qualifying Tournament in Panama on March 1-11.
The groups for the U20 World Cup qualifying have recently been announced with the United States joining host Panama, Guatemala and Cuba in Group B. The U20s will prep for the event with next month's trip to Spain in an international test Swanson hopes will give them a sufficient test.

Katie Stengel, Lindsey Horan, Morgan Brian, Sarah Killion, Julie Johnston, Crystal Dunn, Mollie Pathman, Kassey Kallman, Kealia Ohai, Chioma Ubogagu
