Nicollette Kiorpes (Worcester, Mass.) has gained a lot of national team experience over the past few years.
But the experience she’s embarking on right now -- across the world -- is the most significant yet in her young soccer career.
The NEFC star forward, Doherty Memorial High School senior, and Penn State commit will be playing for the U.S. Under-17 Women’s Youth National Team, which is set to kick-off the 2022 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup today in India. The U.S. opens group competition against host India (10:30 a.m. ET on FS2) in Bhubaneswar. Kalinga Stadium will likely be filled to its capacity of 12,000. The U.S. continues the group on Oct. 14 vs. Brazil in Bhubaneswar (7 a.m. ET on FS2) and wraps up first pool play against Morocco on Oct. 17 in Goa (10:30 a.m. ET on FS2).
