Gianluca Busio explodes for three assists as USA smashes Canada 4-0 to reach Concacaf U-17 Championship Final

Sporting Kansas City midfielder Gianluca Busio exploded for three assists on Tuesday, leading the United States U-17 Men’s National Team to a 3-0 semifinal win over Canada in the 2019 Concacaf U-17 Championship at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

After dominating for extended periods throughout the first period, the Americans opened the floodgates after intermission with four second-half goals to bury Canada and advance to Thursday’s tournament final against either Mexico or Haiti.

Busio played an integral role in the swarming second-half performance, creating the breakthrough by teeing up Bryang Kayo for the game-winner in the 47th minute.
