Alfonso Ocampo-Chavez scores two more in U17 World Cup qualifying

New, 9 comments

That’s four goals in the tournament and 10 in his past nine matches.

Alfonso Ocampo-Chavez is on some run. The Seattle Sounders’ newest Homegrown Player signing scored two more goals as the United States dispatched Guadeloupe 8-0 in Concacaf’s U17 World Cup qualifying tournament on Thursday. That gives Ocampo-Chavez four goals in this tournament, which follows a six-goal performance in the recently concluded GA Cup where he led the Sounders Academy to the title.

Ocampo-Chavez got the USA started quickly with a goal in the 3rd minute, finishing off a well-placed cross with a close-range header.

The USA piled on goals from that point forward, taking a 6-0 lead into halftime, which included a Gio Reyna hat-trick.

It wasn’t until the 68th minute that the USA scored again, but it Ocampo-Chavez who did it. This time, he was fed a cross while standing near the six-yard box and roofing his shot.

Fellow Sounders HGP Danny Leyva also started in this match. Both played the full match.

The USA will next play Panama in the quarterfinals on Sunday. A win would qualify the USA for a record 17th U17 World Cup.
