There is a United States youth team currently playing a tournament in Germany, but you wouldn't know it from the US Soccer website or twitter feeds.

The Mercedez-Benz Elite Cup match ended in a lopsided 8-1 loss at Gazi Stadion for the US. Sub Eryk Williamson scored the only goal, though not before a result for the Yanks was far out of the question.
