The 20-member team named by U.S. under-20 women’s national team coach Michelle French will compete in the 2014 Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) U-20 Championship. The U.S. is part of Group A at the tournament, which also includes Costa Rica, Jamaica and Guatemala. The top three teams at the event advance to the FIFA Women’s U-20 World Cup, set for Aug. 5-24 in various cities in Canada.

 

Jordan just finished a week-long U-20 camp in Sunrise, Fla. French called 24 players into the camp and cut the roster to 20 for upcoming CONCACAF play. Players born on or after January 1, 1994, are eligible for the 2014 U-20 Women’s World Cup. Jordan is one of 10 on the roster who just finished their freshman season of collegiate play.

 

“At every position, we feel these players are technically proficient and possess a great understanding of how we want to play in order to be successful as a team,” said French. "We have players with very unique qualities ranging from creative and effective finishers, to players who are threatening with their dynamic movement in the midfield, to players who are defensively strong and physical in one-on-one situations. Our overall athleticism will be another strength of this team.”

 

December has brought several honors to Jordan after the conclusion of her first Gator campaign. Jordan became just the second freshman in Florida’s 19-year history to earn National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-America honors. TopDrawerSoccer.com named her the outlet’s national rookie of the year on Dec. 19.

 

Jordan was the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Year, marking the first time a freshman has received the honor. She shared the SEC lead and tied for third nationally in 2013 NCAA Division I play with 22 goals. That total also stands second all-time for Gator freshmen and is Florida’s highest season total since Abby Wambach turned in 31 as a senior in 2001. Jordan opened her collegiate career with two goals versus Florida Gulf Coast and three versus Oregon State –that five-goal weekend earned her Disney/NSCAA Player of the Week honors. She also was the SEC Offensive Player and College Sports Madness National player of the week on Oct. 28 after three goals in the previous weekend (1 at Tennessee, 2 versus Texas A&M). The SEC Freshman of the Year scored multiple goals seven times.
