Strikers Logo

(Via MLS) – After a Day 1 of the Generation adidas Cup that saw no MLS team beat a foreign opponent, Day 2 proved to be much more fruitful for the league’s academy teams.

Four MLS teams defeated foreign opponents on Sunday, with three wins coming against Liga MX teams. The day started with the Seattle Sounders defeating Pumas UNAM 2-1 and the San Jose Earthquakes beating Chivas de Guadalajara 1-0 thanks to a fantastic goal from Quakes right winger Will Richmond.

New York City FC next defeated Costa Rican outfit Saprissa 2-0 with Giovanni Reyna, the son of US national team legend and NYCFC sporting director Claudio Reyna, providing a great opener.

Next, the Philadelphia Union followed up a 5-0 win against the New England Revolution with a 2-1 win against Mexican power Monterrey. All in all, MLS went 4-3-0 against foreign opposition after a Day 1 that saw no MLS teams beat foreign academies.
