RED BULLS AT FIFA U17 WORLD CUP

Two Red Bull Academy products are competing at the FIFA U17 World Cup in Nigeria.  Following a 2-1-0 record in group play, the U17s have advanced to the knockout stage.  In the first match of group play, the US was up a man and a goal to Spain, but the final scoreline showed Spain escape with a 2-1 win.  The US bounced back with consecutive, 1-0, wins over Malawi and the United Arab Emirates to place second in Group E and book their spot in the round of 16.

Goalkeeper Keith Cardona (Glen Rock, NJ) has been the reserve goalkeeper in each match but has not been called upon.  Forward John Agudelo (Barnegat, NJ) has also been in the 18 for each match, and came on as a substitute in the final group stage match against UAE.

The US will play Italy on November 4 in the Round of 16, with the winner advancing to play the winner of Switzerland and Germany in the quarterfinals.
