Sarkodie and U-20 team set to start World Cup

The United States men’s Under-20 national team begins play today in group D of World Cup play. The team, which includes Indiana back Ofori Sarkodie, opens with South Korea at Olympic Stadium in Montreal.

It appears as though Sarkodie has been unable to displace Vanderbilt defender Julian Valentin from the starting spot at center back. Valentin is a year older and a slightly more physical player.

If you’ve got ESPNU you can watch the game live starting at 5 p.m. Otherwise, you can follow along at through MatchTracker.

  1. FYI!!!! Indiana University soccer players Kevin Alston and Daniel Kelly have been named by US Soccer to the 18 man roster for the Pan American Games. They will depart for Rio de Janeiro on Sunday for the games which run July 13- 27. The US is sending a U18 squad with a few U19s to the Pan Am Games. Its normally a U20 event, but the 20s are a little preoccupied in Canada right now.
