The U.S. U-19 Men’s National Team claimed their first trophy of 2018, capturing the 2018 U-20 Men’s Invitational Title on Tuesday.
Riding a three-goal second-half, the U-19’s defeated Jamaica 4-1 to finish atop the standings in the four-team tournament. A 3-1 victory by the U.S. U-20 MNT over Venezuela later in the afternoon, sealed the first place finish for their younger counterparts.
Issac Angking, Declan McGlynn, Ulysses Llanez, and Joshua Penn all bagged goal in Monday’s win over Jamaica.
The U-20 team used goals from Ayo Akinola, Andrew Carleton, and Sergino Dest to down Venezuela in the final match of the day. Jaylin Lindsey recorded the opening assist, while LA Galaxy midfielder Alex Mendez registered two assists himself.
The U-20 side finished second on six points, while Venezuela finished third on four and Jamaica finished bottom with zero.
i like the U19 team winning the U20 tournament over the U20 team.
Remember that they beat the U-20’s because they had a man advantage for a good part of the game. What I like is that the two teams finished first and second and ahead of Venezuela, which did very well in the last U-20 World Cup.
