Tessa Dellarose scores wonder goal in USYNT’s dominant win vs Jamaica at CONCACAF U-20 Women’s Championship

The U.S. U-20 Women’s Youth National Team advanced to the semifinals of the Concacaf U-20 Women’s Championship with a dominating 4-0 win against Jamaica.

Former Brownsville High School and Hounds Academy standout and current University of North Carolina rising sophomore, Tessa Dellarose scored a wonder goal in the USA’s comfortable win in its second match of the group stage.

Dellarose’s strike came early in the second half, after forward Madeline Dahlien scored her second goal of the match shortly after the break, in the 46th minute, to put the USYNT in command of the match.

Two minutes later, the Americans struck again, this time as Dellarose ran onto a ball that had been cleared by the Jamaica defender just outside the penalty area on the left side.

As the ball came to her, she connected with her left foot to fire a screamer from 26 yards out that beat the goalkeeper into the far post.

With this result combined with a 6-0 win over Panama to open the tournament, the U.S. advances to the semifinal round and sits atop Group A with one match left to play.

The USA needs a win or a draw against Canada to secure the top spot in the group when the teams meet on Tuesday, May 30 at 6 p.m. ET (FS2). The winners of the semifinals and the third-place match advance to the 2024 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
