Pumas exit Generation Adidas Cup after Group Stage

The Pumas academy was busy this week north of the border as they participated in the 2017 Generation Adidas Cup in Frisco, Texas in the United States. The tournament was a showcase of young talent across both Major League Soccer and Liga MX, plus Saprissa from Costa Rica, the only club not from Mexico or the US.

Pumas were in Group A along with New York City FC (MLS), Seattle Sounders (MLS), and Saprissa (Costa Rica). The U-17 side finished the group stage in third place with three points.

In their first match (April 7), Pumas defeated Saprissa 4-0, but lost to Seattle (1-2) and New York (0-1) in their final two games to end their participation in the tournament.

MLS offered live streams of many of the games, with Pumas getting two of their games covered. I’ve embedded the games below for those who would like to watch.
