USA virtually hits junior Soca Warriors out of CONCACAF U15 Championship for six.

Trinidad and Tobago are virtually out of the CONCACAF 2017 Under-15 Championship in Florida, USA after losing 4-0 to Costa Rica and 6-0 against the United States on Sunday and Monday respectively.

The junior Soca Warriors, bottom of Group B without a point, face Canada (3 points) on Wednesday in their final Group B game at IMG’s campus in Bradenton, Florida.

A Chavez and Gianluca Busio each scored twice for the United States for the comfortable 6-0 win to put the hosts in command of the group with maximum 6 points. 

G. Reyna opened the scoring from the penalty spot before assisting in a quick double from A. Chavez—all within the first eight minutes—for a 3-0 American lead at the break.

Busio, who scored on either side of the break on Sunday for a 2-0 USA win over Canada, arrived off the bench in the second half to score twice, separated by a C. Garica goal, against Trinidad and Tobago.

The United States will complete group play against Costa Rica (3 points) on Wednesday.
