USA update CONCACAF U-20 Championship

     We have to wait til next month for the WCQ matches against Honduras and Panama, but they are only 2 games. This summer we have the very entertaining, exciting and growing Gold Cup. So for now we rely on out junior teams to get us through the international drought.
    The U-20 Tournament is in full swing in the tropical Costa Rica. The USA is only 1-1 after dropping their first match against pesky Panama. The USA should easily get past Saint Kitts and Nevis but as on now they would need underdog Haiti beat PAnama and create a 3 way tie for first. IF that happens - USA better not just dominate Saint K but put many goals past the overmatch island.

IF the USA places second which is the most realistic outcome, they have powerful Mexico who won their Group A and El Salvador who won group B waiting in the next round. We can wait to see what happens today before we get into that.
