August 9 is setting up to be a busy day for the U.S. Soccer program. The U.S. Women’s National Team headlines the billing of the day with the final game of group play from the 2016 Olympic Games. The U.S. WNT takes on Colombia at 6 p.m. (ET) on NBCSN. The U.S. needs a win or a draw to claim the top spot Group G. 

The U.S. U17 Women’s National Team takes on Brazil at 6 p.m. (ET) in the first of two scrimmages in Michigan this week. The U17s are preparing for the upcoming World Cup in Jordan. 

In Florida, the U.S. U15 Girls National Team is in action with the first game from the 2016 CONCACAF U15 Girls Championship. The U.S. takes on Trinidad & Tobago at 9 a.m. (ET) in the opener on Tuesday from the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney in Orlando. 

U15 GNT head coach Mark Carr called in 18 players for this event with eyes toward preparing the players for the U17 WNT in 2017. Sixteen players from the 2001 age group make up the roster, but that birth year also includes four players (Lia Godfrey, Kennedy Wesley, Kate Wiesner, and Jordan Canniff) who are currently with the U17s in Michigan. 

While the best 01s have been pushed up an age group, there are still some future USWNT stars to watch in Florida this week during the 2016 CONCACAF U15 Championship.
