U.S. U-17 MYNT Eliminated in World Cup Round of Sixteen After Memorable Performances From Homegrown Nimfasha Berchimas


In the USYNT's Round of 16 match against Germany, homegrown player Nimfasha Berchimas took the field, following their second place finish in their group stage. The U.S. team held significant possession, but Germany proved lethal on the wings and during set pieces. After conceding a goal from a free kick, the U.S. retaliated with a goal of their own, courtesy of a well-placed cross by none other than Berchimas.

The match saw both teams exchanging goals once again, but in the 87th minute, Germany secured a late winner shattering American hearts ending their World Cup journey. Despite the heartbreak, both the U.S. team and Berchimas made their country proud. In the three matches he started and four overall appearances, Berchimas contributed three goals, earning him the title of the team’s leading scorer in the tournament. Remarkably, he achieved this feat as the youngest member of the side.
