[NTC INVITATIONAL] Andrija Novakovich and Zach Pfeffer came off the bench to score the tying and winning goals as the U.S. under-20 national team opened play at the 2014 National Training Center Invitational with a 2-1 win over Chile.

Novakovich and Pfeffer combined to tie the score at 1-1 in 65th minute, just two minutes after subbing on together. Novakovich, who recently joined English club Reading, scored on a header off Pfeffer's free kick past Chile goalkeeper Brayan Cortes.

The U.S. took the 2-1 lead in the 73rd minute when Pfeffer, who plays for the Philadelphia Union, finished a cross by Paul Arriola from the right side into the lower left corner of the goal.

Chile's goal was scored by Cristian Cuevas in the 22nd minute following an errant clearance by U.S. keeper Santiago Castano.

The best chances for the USA came in the first half off free kicks by French-based Romain Gall and Fernando Arce, one of three players from Mexico's Tijuana along with Arriola and John Requejo.

The USA continues play in the NTC Invitational on Wednesday against Bermuda, which fell to Australia, 4-1.
