    COUVA, Trinidad & Tobago – The 2018 CONCACAF Under-20 Women’s Championship Technical Study Group announced Sunday that Mexico’s Emily Alvarado earned the Golden Glove Award presented by Allstate as the competition’s top goalkeeper.

    The 19-year-old custodian appeared in four of the Tricolor’s five games, conceding four goals.

    In the final against the four-time defending champion United States, Alvarado came up huge. After 120 minutes of play, the sides were level at 1-1 and penalty kicks were used to decide which team would lift the trophy. Alvarado saved two U.S. attempts as Mexico prevailed, 4-2, from the spot.

    She has already played in two World Cups: 2014 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup (2 games) and 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup (3 games).
