With a 2-0 win over El Salvador despite finishing the game with only nine men, the U.S. secured a berth in the U-20 World Cup to be held in Egypt. This is the the first time the U-20's have beaten El Salvador outside the U.S. in the qualifying tournament. Although the U.S. has qualified for the U20 World Cup 12 times, they have never won the CONCACAF tournament.
Yesterday I noted that Mexico was sacked from the tournament after two rounds. The U.S. is looking strong and have a real chance to win the tournament.
The U.S. will face the Group B runner up on Friday, which could be either Costa Rica, Canada or Trinidad & Tobago.
