Joya's second goal in stoppage time trips up Xolos
[USA UNDER-21 MEN] First-year Chicago Fire midfielder Benji Joya scored two goals, the second one in stoppage time, to lead
the U.S. under-21 national team to a 2-1 win over Mexican club Tijuana's reserves to wrap up its first training camp at U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center.
The game seemed
headed for a draw after U.S. U-20 Amando Moreno, who joined Tijuana from the New York Red Bulls, had equalized for Xolos, but an opportunistic goal by Joya gave
the U-21s the win.
Other U.S. players in the Tijuana squad included Greg Garza, Paul Arriola and Fernando Arce Jr.
Victor Pineda and Joya joined the Chicago Fire Reserves from the U-21 camp for their match
against USL PRO's Charlotte Eagles on Friday.
U.S. U-21 national team -- Kempin (McIntosh 46); Sorto (Delgado 46), Dean, O'Neill (Guido 46),
Ocegueda (Serna 46); Hairston, Martin (Rodriguez 46), Joya, Cuevas (Okoli 46), Villarreal (McBean 46), Pineda (Morris 46).
