Vassilev Brace Leads U-17 MNT to 4-0 Rout of Iceland, Third Place Finish at Vaclav Jezek Tournament

PRAGUE (Aug. 26, 2017) - The U.S. Under-17 Men’s National Team ended the International Youth Tournament of Vaclav Jezek on a high note with a resounding 4-0 victory over Iceland in the third-place match.

Mendez opened up the scoring early for the red, white and blue with a ninth-minute goal. A few minutes later, Vassilev scored his first goal of the tournament in the 12th. His second came after the half in the 54th minute. After assisting on Vassilev’s first goal, Pereira added one of his own to complete the rout in the 62nd minute.

The match marked the first U.S. victory in the tournament without allowing a goal. It’s the final official competition for the U-17s before October’s FIFA U-17 World Cup in India. The team will gather next for a September camp in Bradenton, Florida.
