USA 2 – 0 Nigeria

Sebastian Soto’s brace was the difference as the United States secured an important victory over Nigeria in the Under-20 World Cup.

The U.S. entered the contest off a 2-1 defeat to Ukraine in their opening game in Group D.

With Nigeria having secured a 4-0 victory over Qatar in their opener, and Ukraine defeating the Asian nation earlier in the day, Tab Ramos’ U.S. side knew defeat would put them in a difficult spot for qualification to knockout stages of the competition.
