USA continues to impress at U-20 World Cup
The USA U-20 team was able to steal a victory in overtime against an attacking Uruguay side on Wednesday. Both teams showed great talent along with offensive flair. USA was very composed looking for the equalizer in the later minutes – it reminded me of the senior team’s resolve after halftime in the Gold Cup Final v. Mexico.
Speaking of Mexico, their run at Copa America has been very impressive. The roster for this tournament was missing most of the players that play abroad (Salcedo, Pardo, Osorio, etc.) and, unlike USA, they remained competitive. USA may be Gold Cup Champions, but for that final, Mexico has had a better summer………
With USA, Mexico, Brazil, and Uruguay playing games in both the Copa America and U-20 World Cup, casual fans are a little confused but quickly adjust. From what I’ve seen so far, the fans of these countries have a lot to look forward to.
