FRISCO – For the second time in three games, a FC Dallas player was named the ussoccer.com Man of the Match for the U-20 Men's National Team. This time around, it was midfielder Brandon Servania.
He scored the opening goal for the United States in a 6-1 rout over Trinidad & Tobago in the Concacaf U-20 Championship.
Servania received the ball from about 30 yards out and took one touch before ripping the ball in the bottom left corner.

Paxton Pomykal added a goal and an assist of his own. After a Trinidad & Tobago turnover, Justin Rennicks crossed the ball towards the penalty spot and Pomykal came rushing up the pitch to extend the lead to 3-0 just before the half.
In the 52nd minute, Pomykal beat his man to the goal line and found Alex Mendez for an easy goal.
