Highlights: V-Varen Nagasaki vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC

Vancouver Whitecaps FC opened the 2019 preseason with a 3-1 loss to Japanese club V-Varen Nagasaki on Friday night in Pacific Rim Cup action at Aloha Stadium. David Norman Jr. scored the lone goal for the ‘Caps, who are still without several recent additions that are yet to join the group, in the 81st minute. The 20-year-old Coquitlam native headed in a corner kick from fellow Whitecaps FC Academy product Simon Colyn, a 16-year-old from Langley, to get the ‘Caps on the board with a local connection.
