MLS Homegrown duo Dante Sealy, Moses Nyeman lead US U16s to win over Turkey

The US U-16 national team continued their fine play at the Nike International Friendlies tournament, on Monday as they came from behind to beat Turkey 3-2 on Monday in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.

After going down 1-0, the US equalized through D.C. United Homegrown signing Moses Nyeman

FC Dallas Homegrown Dante Sealy then scored a brace, the insurance goal vital as Turkey made a late rally to make it 3-2.

The win puts the US U-16s in a good position to win the friendly tournament, but they need to wait for the outcome of the Netherlands' match against the US U-17s on Monday, the Dutch able to take the title themselves with a win and superior goal difference to the US U-16s.
