U.S. Men’s Olympic Soccer Team Begins Preparation for 2024 Paris Olympics with 2-1 Win Over Mexico in Phoenix

The U.S. Olympic Men’s Soccer Team officially began its preparations for the 2024 Paris Olympics with a 2-1 victory over Mexico in an international friendly Wednesday night at Phoenix Rising Club Stadium.

The first U.S. goal came from forward Esmir Bajraktarevic, who scored on a brilliant 22-yard shot from outside the box in first-half stoppage time.

“I got the ball,” Bajraktarevic said, “and I remember I was one-on-one. I was like, ‘I’m going to shoot.’ The ball went in.

It was the first goal for the 18-year-old, who is also one of the youngest players on the team and currently plays for the New England Revolution in Major League Soccer.

The U.S. dominated most of the first half, controlling possession and setting the pace. However, the script changed in the second half as Mexico became the attacking side and put pressure on the goal.

U.S. goalkeeper Patrick Schulte was outstanding, making several key saves to stop Mexico’s scoring chances.

Midfielder Obed Vargas pulled a goal back for the U.S. in stoppage time.

Mexico’s Jesus Bridggio added a goal late in the game.

The U.S. team is in Phoenix for a training camp to prepare for the Olympics in Paris next summer. The camp marks the official start of their Olympic journey.

While it is still early in the team’s preparation, coach Marko Mitrović is pleased with the progress the team has made so far.

“This is our first training camp and we have had very limited time to participate in training camps and friendlies,” Mitrović said. Mitrović said, “Today was the first step in our efforts to develop and build the best possible squad for the Olympics. We are trying to use every opportunity to get to know each other, to get to know how we play on the field, to get to know who we are.

“We’re only three days into it. I think the best assessment will be at the end of the camp. He added: “We have a very good group of players who are very professional. They know what they are doing. So far, everything has gone well on and off the pitch. I mean, that’s the only way we can work as a team. So far, everything has been very positive.

The group of men’s U23 players needed for the Olympics have begun to build chemistry in Scottsdale through group dinners and team activities, and their goal is to establish a strong bond before the Paris Games.

They even visited a top golf course where midfielder Tanner Tessman won a tournament, at least that’s what fellow midfielder Gianluca Busio said (the two are also teammates on Italy’s Venice team). All these activities are part of fostering camaraderie.

“Building a community, really,” Busio said of the team’s goals for training camp. Our goal for every training camp is to be more prepared for the Olympics. Players will be in and out. Some players have hopes of making the men’s national team at certain camps. So we’re building a core group, showing what we’re going to do as a team, learning the coaches, adapting to each other. This is just the first camp and we have a long way to go. Whatever we can do to build the team in this short period of time, it’s the first step in achieving our goals.
