The Under-18 U.S. Men’s National Team will be playing for some hardware this weekend.

A day after rallying to pick up a 3-1 win over Hungary, the Americans reached the final of the 21st International Tournament of Vaclav Jezek with a 3-2 victory against the Czech Republic.

Collin Fernandez, Sebastian Saucedo and Haji Wright each found the back of the net for the U.S., but it was Wright’s strike that stood as the game-winner after the tournament hosts scored their second on the final kick of the match.

Finishing atop Group A, Javier Perez’s side will now play in the tournament final on Saturday. The U.S. will take on the winner of Group B, which includes Ukraine, Slovakia and Japan.

What do you think of the U-18 USMNT defeating Czech Republic? Do you see them winning the tournament final this weekend?
