Young striker shines for USA

15 July 2014

Andrija Novakovich scores against Chile U20s

Young Royals striker Andrija Novakovich came off the bench to score for USA U20s and help his country come from behind to beat Chile 2-1 on Monday night.

It took our 18-year-old just two minutes to make an impact after he was brought on in the 63rd minute, heading home a Zach Pfeffer cross to level the score.

Novakovich, who officially signed for the Royals last month, was impressive as he helped the US complete the turnaround and secure their first win of the 2014 National Training Center Invitational.

Andrija will be hoping to start for the States when they take on Bermuda in their second game of the tournament on Wednesday.

USA: Castano; Requejo, Amick, Donovan, Moore; Gall (Pfeffer, 63), Canouse, Arce, Arriola (Delgado, 74); Gooch (Hayes, 83), Lopez (Novakovich, 63)
