The Development Academy showcase is currently running through its paces in Florida, which means a collection of the nation’s brightest young stars are currently throwing hands in front of sidelines choked with scouts.
One of the most anticipated of those games was the Red Bulls-FC Dallas U18 match on the opening Thursday of the event. The two are routinely the most talent-laden academies over the last three years, and FCD’s 2016 national title sweep proves they’re the kings of the castle for now. The game duly didn’t disappoint, the sides struggling to a 1-1 conclusion that fairly reflected the evenness of the talent levels.
The way they tied? That was a bit unique.
