International Notebook | Timbers forward Jeremy Ebobisse helps U.S. U-20s to big win at CONCACAF U-20 Championships

The U.S. U-20s continued their run through the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championships Friday in Costa Rica with a 4-1 win over St. Kitts and Nevits. Portland Timbers forward Jeremy Ebobisse received his third straight start for the U.S. and chipped in an assist on Brooks Lennon's opening goal in the 17th minute. 

Receiving the ball near the top of the 18-yard box, Ebobisse carried through to the endline, shedding defenders, before slotting a pass across the face of goal for Lennon to hit into the back of the net.

With the win, the U.S. finished second in Group B and now advance to the next round facing Mexico on Feb. 27 (2pm PT, CONCACAF Facebook). The next stage of the tournament includes two, three-team groups with the top two finishers of each of those groups earning qualification to the FIFA U-20 World Cup while the group winner of each will play each other in a final to decide the champion of the CONCACAF U-20 tournament.
