The U.S. U-17 Men’s National Team took care of business in a pair of friendlies against Costa Rica in Bradenton, Fla. on Saturday and Monday, winning 3-1 and 4-0, respectively.

Bryan Reynolds Jr. and Blaine Ferri gave the U.S. a 2-0 lead in the first match on Oct. 22 before Andres Gomez cut the advantage in half for Costa Rica early in the second half. However, Josh Sargent put the game out of reach just 11 minutes later as the Americans secured the victory.

Monday’s match was a fast-paced affair with Atlanta United’s Andrew Carleton scoring after just two minutes off an assist from Ferri. Sargent doubled the advantage later in the first half. The U.S. continued to dominate after halftime asĀ George Acosta and Ayo Akinola recorded the third and fourth goals, respectively.

The U-17s will meet again for a training campĀ in Jamaica as they prepare to face the Reggae Boyz’s U-17 team in a pair of friendlies on Nov. 2 and Nov. 6.
