Goals from Andrew Carleton and Christian Cappis ensured a successful final day at the Pinatar Arena Football Festival for the U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team.
The U20s defeated Japan by a 2-1 score in Monday's final game, with Cappis scoring for the second game in a row. It's a big boost for the Hobro IK midfielder as he looks to stake a claim on a World Cup roster spot. Per a Spanish reporter in attendance, Cappis "put on an exhibition" in the game against Japan.
Also in action in Spain over the weekend, the U.S. Under-23 Men's National Team drew 0-0 against the Netherlands on Sunday, wrapping up their stay on the continent. Both sides had opportunities to find the back of the net and break the deadlock, with Josh Sargent, Timothy Weah and Antonee Robinson among those coming close for the USA.
