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.
Moses Nyeman scores his 2nd goal of the Nike International Friendlies. Finds a gaping hole in the Turkish defensive line and puts it away with a calm finish. A win today and the U16s will be in a good position to secure the tournament title. pic.twitter.com/2ueQU6T9AJ— Future USMNT (@FutureUsmnt) November 18, 2019
Dante Sealy puts the U16s ahead on some very direct buildup. Good idea by Paredes to play a ball across the box and Sealy slots it home. pic.twitter.com/FudoHPT3th— Future USMNT (@FutureUsmnt) November 18, 2019
Sealy does it again! The US-U16 right winger grabs his 2nd of the match by rounding the keeper and putting the ball into an empty net. He's had an excellent tournament. pic.twitter.com/LjYnZ0z9YM— Future USMNT (@FutureUsmnt) November 18, 2019
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.
