1. Uly Llanez scored two more goals to give him four goals in his first two games
for Wolfsburg in the A-Junioren Bundesliga Nord/Nordost.
Wolfsburg's U-19s have opened with a 5-1 win over St. Pauli and 4-2 win over Werder Bremen. Llanez signed with Wolfsburg when he turned 18 in April but too late to be registered for the second half of
the 2018-19 German season. Konrad de la Fuente scored for Barcelona's Juvenil A team in its first two games at the Otten Cup for under-19 teams hosted by Dutch club PSV. Barca finished fourth
behind Inter Milan, PSV and Everton. Like Llanez, his teammate on the 2019 U.S. U-20 World Cup team, de la Fuente is eligible for the 2021 U-20 World Cup.
