9 April 2017

Kevin O'Connor's side in action at Jersey Road

Brentford B will take on international opposition this morning as Kevin O'Connor's side welcome the USA Men's National Team Under-20s to Jersey Road, kick-off 11am, with entry free for spectators.

Tab Ramos' side are in London for a week long training camp ahead of this summer's Under-20 World Cup in Korea Republic where they will face Ecuador, Senegal, and Saudi Arabia. Six European based players have been included in the USA's 25 man training squad including West Bromwich Albion's Danny Barbir, Sheffield Wednesday's James Murphy, and Mukwelle Akale from Villarreal CF.

The inaugural year of The B Team has also seen O’Connor’s side take on the likes of Valencia, Villarreal, Chelsea, Hamburg SV, Tottenham Hotspur, and Bayern Munich and claim silverware by winning the Kai Thor Cup in Denmark back in January. Last time out a hat-trick from Justin Shaibu and braces from Jan Novak and Luke Dunn saw The B Team beat the Nike Academy 7-1 at Jersey Road.
