The U.S. U-20 men's national team defeated rival Mexico 3-0 Friday. Defender Sheanon Williams opened the scoring for the U.S. in the 25th minute and forward Peri Marosevic added a brace to seal the win.
"Games like this are the best way to evaluate players," said coach Thomas Rongen. "I thought we took our chances well and that's important. Another very positive thing for us is that we really didn't give Mexico any good looks at the goal. I'm very happy with the way we played defensively and maybe we could be a little better with the ball, but we want to continue to well on set pieces. That was obviously one of our strengths tonight."
