U.S. U-20 MNT CLINCH SPOT IN CONCACAF U-20 CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFICATION STAGE
WITH 7-0 WIN OVER SURINAME

Alex Mendez and Ayo Akinola Each Notch a Brace; McKenzie, Torres and Rennicks Also Score;
USA Will Face Costa Rica and Honduras in Qualification Stage on Nov. 16 and 19

BRADENTON, Fla. (Nov. 9, 2018) – The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team completed its dominating sweep of Group A of the 2018 Concacaf U-20 Championship with a 7-0 win against Suriname on Friday night at IMG Academy Stadium. With 15 points from five games, the USA won the group and will now advance to the Qualification Stage, where they’ll face Group E winner, Costa Rica and Group C winner, Honduras, on Nov. 16 and 19, respectively. The top two teams will qualify for the 2019 FIFA Under-20 World Cup, with the winner advancing to the Concacaf U-20 Championship final.

For the fourth time in the five group games, the USA took a lead within seven minutes of the game, tonight courtesy of Alex Mendez, who curled in a left-footed free kick over the wall and into the side net from 22 yards out to open the scoring.

The USA had a chance to double the lead in the 22nd minute, but Suriname goalkeeper Rivaldo Soesman saved a penalty kick by Griffin Dorsey. Minutes later, Mendez set up the second goal, working a quick corner kick with Paxton Pomykal before getting the ball back and whipping in a dangerous cross into the box. Centerback and captain for the night Mark McKenzie out-jumped his mark and connected on a header, sending the ball past the goalkeeper for his third goal of the tournament.

The USA essentially put the game away with two quick strikes from Ayo Akinola, who got on the end of passes from Griffin Dorsey and Paxton Pomykal from close range to stretch the lead to 4-0 before the break.

With continued long stretches of possession and little challenges defensively, the USA added three more in the second half. Juan Pablo Torres guided a shot through traffic at the hour mark, second half substitute Justin Rennicks added his fourth of the tournament, and Mendez completed the rout by converting his second penalty kick and fifth goal of the group stage.

As determined at the tournament Draw in September, as winner of Group A the USA is matched with the winners of Group C and E in the Qualification Stage, forming Group G. Group H will consist of Panama (winner, Group D), El Salvador (winner, Group F), and the winner of Group B, which will be decided Saturday between Mexico or Jamaica. After another round robin, the top two from each group will qualify for the 2019 FIFA Under-20 World Cup and the winners will meet in the 2018 Concacaf U-20 Championship final on Nov. 21.

Up Next: The U-20 MNT will face Costa Rica on Friday, Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m. ET and Honduras on Monday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. ET at IMG Academy Stadium in Bradenton, Fla.

USA – Mark McKenzie (Alex Mendez), 26th minute: Another well-executed set piece resulted in the USA’s second goal.

An unmarked McKenzie met leaped and headed the ball over a defender and the goalkeeper for his third goal of the tournament. USA 2, SUR 0

USA – Ayo Akinola (Griffin Dorsey), 43th minute: A combination of passes from the back to the left side, back to the middle, set up Frankie Amaya to run toward the top of the box, bringing a defender on before springing Griffin Dorsey into the box. Dorsey pushed the ball back across to the back post, setting up Akinola for the easy tap-in. USA 3, SUR 0

USA – Ayo Akinola (Paxton Pomykal) 45+1 minute: The play started with a simple throw-in on the right side from Jaylin Lindsey to Dorsey, who gave the ball right back to Lindsey, allowing the right back to split two defenders with a pass to Pomykal. The FC Dallas forward sent a first-touch ball across the six, where Akinola beat his mark and scored his second of the night. USA 4, SUR 0

USA – Justin Rennicks (Chris Gloster), 79th minute: Pomykal’s run towards goal allowed Chris Gloster space to approach the area, and the left back one-timed Pomykal’s simple touch to the top of the six where Rennicks beat his mark to deftly touch the ball past the goalkeeper. USA 6, SUR 0.

DEONTAY WILDER VS TYSON FURY

Nov 12, 2018

DEONTAY WILDER OPENS UP ABOUT LONG-AWAITED “LEGACY FIGHT” AGAINST TYSON FURY IN WIDE-RANGING SHOWTIME SPORTS® INTERVIEW

 

“It’s time for America to wake up and understand they have the baddest man on the planet right here” – Deontay Wilder

 

Wilder Shares His Thoughts With Below The Belt Host Brendan Schaub As He Prepares To Face Fury December 1 Live On SHOWTIME PPV®

Watch, Share And Embed The Full Interview: https://s.sho.com/2Pn3csg

WHAT: WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay Wilder sat down with SHOWTIME Sports correspondent Brendan Schaub as part of a wide-ranging interview providing a glimpse into the mindset of the undefeated champion as he prepares for the most significant heavyweight event in the U.S. in more than 15 years. The 6-foot-7 Wilder meets 6-foot-9 lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury December 1 live on SHOWTIME PPV® from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.

Wilder, who is America’s only true heavyweight champion since 2007, discusses everything from his career-defining win over Luis Ortiz and his incredible knockout power, to the pressures of being the heavyweight champion of the world and his love for his family in the candid 35-minute interview from a double-decker bus in Los Angeles.

The Tuscaloosa, Ala. native, however, had the most to say about his upcoming battle with Fury. “Throughout my whole career, guys always said I only had one hand,” Wilder explains to Schaub as they head to Los Angeles International Airport following Monday’s media day in Santa Monica. “But when you get in the ring, it’s going to be different. The game plan is going to go out the window, like Mike Tyson said.

“This is the moment in time for America to wake up and understand they have the baddest man on the planet right here,” Wilder passionately continues. “And you think I’m going to let this Gypsy come in here and mess up all those plans for me? I don’t think so.”

The heavyweight showdown headlines the December 1 SHOWTIME PPV live from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT).  Wilder, who has knocked out all seven challengers of his title, will attempt to make his eighth WBC Heavyweight defense. In the third fight of his comeback, Fury has the opportunity to become a two-time heavyweight world champion.

Desde las primeras vueltas, Kevin Harvick a bordeo del auto número 4, encabezó la lid seguido por Chase Elliot (No., 9), Ryan Blaney (No. 12) y Kyle Bush (No. 18) .

En la primera fase (75 vueltas), Daniel Suárez – oriundo de Monterrey, N.L. – en su bólido número 19, hizo acto de presencia como piloto profesional de la NASCAR, colocándose a la mitad de la columna, entre los lugares 20 y 21, alternando lugares con Joey Logano.
