The MLS side’s Under-17 team pulled off a historic win on Sunday though when NYCFC topped Real Madrid’s youth side on Sunday.

The Bronx club pulled off a 1-0 victory courtesy of a second-half strike from substitute David Alino.

NYCFC currently sits on three points in Group C play through two matches. Brazilian side Atletico Paranaense holds six points, and needs just a draw on Monday to finish atop the group.

Four groups make up the Generation adidas Cup tournament field, and only the group winners advance to the semifinals.
