U-17 MNT Begins International Youth Tournament of Vaclav Jezek with 4-1 Win Vs. Hungary

PRAGUE  – (Aug. 22, 2017) - The U.S. U-17 Men’s National Team kicked off its title defense at the 24th International Youth Tournament of Vaclav Jezek with an emphatic 4-1 win against Hungary. Paris Saint-Germain’s Tim Weah, 2016-17 Development Academy U-15/16 Champion Andrew Carleton and U-20 World Cup phenom Josh Sargent all notched goals.
Weah opened the scoring in the 26th minute and the USA never looked back as Carleton added the second goal just six minutes later. After the break, Hungary got on the board with a goal from Norbert Szendrei, but a late brace from Sargent put the game out of reach, as he scored in the 78th and 90th minutes.

The U.S. will face Russia in its second group stage match on Aug. 23 at 11 a.m. ET. The U.S. U-18 MNT also faced Russia in the group stage of last year’s competition, coming away with a high-scoring 5-3 win on their way to winning the tournament title. After three group stage matches, the eight teams from Groups A and B will be placed into classification matches to determine final placement.
