Bulls Abroad: Chris Gloster starts in USA U-17s win over Jamaica

Another win over CONCACAF opposition for the US U-17 Men's National Team.

The US U-17 Men's National Team has one objective: qualify for the 2017 U-17 World Cup (after which, it will have another objective: do as well as possible in that tournament). To achieve that goal, the team will have to do well in the 2017 CONCACAF U-17 Championship, so the team is preparing for the April tournament with a string of friendlies against regional opposition.

So far, it is going well. In September, the US U-17s beat Guatemala in back-to-back games by an aggregate score of 17-0. A trip to Panama saw a two-game series split with the home team. At the end of October, the young Americans twice beat the Costa Rica U-17 team in Florida. And now head coach John Hackworth has brought a squad to Jamaica to test itself against Caribbean opposition.

The USA won the first of a two-game series, 3-0, on November 2. New York Red Bulls Academy prospect Chris Gloster continued his run of regular starts for the U-17 MNT, and played the full 90 minutes.

Goals came from Ayomide Akinola, Josh Sargent, and Tonny Temple.

The Jamaica and US U-17 Men's National Teams will square off again on November 6.
