U.S. U-20 MNT Takes Win Against Vancouver Whitecaps

The U.S. U-20 Men’s National Team rebounded from a 1-0 loss to Mexico on Sunday to earn a 1-0 win against the Vancouver Whitecaps in the Dallas Cup Super Group. Moises Orozco scored the lone goal for Thomas Rongen’s side in the first minute of the game by heading home a cross from right-winger Jose Altamirano.

In the 40th minute, U.S. goalkeeper Justin Luthy was sent off for a challenge just outside the penalty area, but the 10-man U.S. squad was able to hold onto the shutout victory.

The U.S. will round out group play at the Dallas Cup on Wednesday, March 31, against German side Eintracht Frankfurt inside the stadium at Pizza Hut Park.
