Kelley O'Hara and the U.S. U-20 National Team Falls to Brazil 5-0
July 27, 2007
Stanford University Sophomore Kelley O'Hara and the rest of U.S. U-20 Women's National team fell to full Brazil national team 5-0 in the Championship game of the Pan Am Games. The game was played at the famous Maracana Stadium in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, which at one time was the largest soccer venue in the world. The loss though was on the heels of the U-20 National team's stellar 2-1 victory over the full Canadian National team in the semifinals. The Canadian women have already qualified for the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup in China this September.
O'Hara was very impressive throughout the games as she finished with four goals and three assists in the six matches in Brazil. She was also named the Sierra Mist Woman of the Match in the 3-1 victory over Panama on July 14th.
The U.S. Women's U-20 team will now prepare for next year's FIFA World Championships in Chile.
