Gianluca Busio strikes twice, Tyler Freeman features as USA U-17s defeat Barbados 6-1 at Concacaf U-17 Championship

Sporting Kansas City midfielder Gianluca Busio stayed hot on Saturday, bagging a superb brace as the United States U-17 Men’s National Team remained perfect in Group F of the 2019 Concacaf U-17 Championship with a 6-1 victory over Barbados. The second half also saw Sporting forward Tyler Freeman make his tournament debut, replacing Busio at halftime of the one-sided affair.

Busio, who ignited the Americans’ 3-2 comeback win against Canada with a wicked volley on Thursday, struck again in the 26th minute of Saturday’s contest at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
