US U-18 DUO SIGN IN EUROPE
EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, April 7, 2014
A pair of players on the US U-18 national team will begin their careers overseas in Europe after coming to terms this past week.

Dembakwi Yomba, 17, of Lithona, Georgia has signed a deal with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid. The talented forward most recently played for the United States in January for the International Tournament in Spain.

Andrija Novakovich, 18, of Muskego, Wisconsin has signed with Reading FC of the English Championship and was most recently with the U.S. U-18 for the International Tournament. He was set to attend Marquette University but opted to turn professional instead.

Both Yomba and Novakovich could also potentially play a role with the U.S. U-20 team as it builds towards next year's World Cup in New Zealand.
