MOST COMMENTED

[U.S. UNDER-17 MEN] Rubio Rubin, who had scored two goals and two assists in a 4-4 tie with Brazil, came off the bench and had a goal and an assist in the U.S. under-17 national team's 4-1 win over Turkey in their second game at the Nike International Friendlies at Premier Sports Campus in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. Alan Winn also had a goal and an assist off the bench.

Rubin made a strong run off the ball as Corey Baird gained possession in the middle of the field and released Winn on the left flank for the third U.S. goal in the 82nd minute.

The U.S. broke a 1-1 tie in the 71st minute after Baird was taken down in the box and earned a penalty kick. Captain Shaquell Moore stepped up and converted his third penalty kick goal of the year.

Goalkeeper Evan Louro, who helped lead the New York Red Bulls to the 2012 U.S. Soccer Development Academy U-15/16 title, made nine saves, including a point-blank stop in the 76th minute on Unal Enes.

The USA is in first place after two games, leading Portugal on goal difference (7-4 to 4-3). Richie Williams' Americans will win the title for the second year in a row with a win. They will also win the title with a tie unless Brazil beats Turkey by more than three goals.
