U.S. U-23 collegians beat Tijuana third division team

The U.S. under-23 men's nationa; team finished up its College ID camp with a 3-1 win over Tijuana Premier, Xolos' third division team, on goals by Paul Salcedo (California) Mac Steeves (Providence) and Brandon Vincent (Stanford).

Juan Rodriguez scored Tijuana to even the score before the U-23 collegians pulled away on goals by Steevens and Vincent.

The camp was designed to give U-23 head coach Andi Herzog a look at a group of 28 collegiate players. Concacaf qualifying for the 2016 Olympics will be held in October.

“It was the first time that U.S. Soccer has had college camp like this,” Herzog said. “I got the chance to learn more about all of these players. After an intra-squad scrimmage and especially after the game against Tijuana, I was really pleased because I saw a lot of talent. We will certainly be watching.”
