U.S. U-18 boys split with Canada

The Javier Perez-coached U.S. U-18 boys national team beat its counterparts from Canada, 3-1, before losing the rematch, 3-2, during a Southern California training camp in last October.

Perez brought in a 24-player roster of 1999-borns.

Sweden-raised, New York-born Nebiyou Perry scored twice in the victory over Canada. FC Richmond’s Nick Taitague scored in each game.
