US U-20 Men and Women Fall Short At World Cup and CONCACAF Championship

United States U-20 Men National Team Falls 2-0 to Uruguay in World Cup

The United States U-20 Men’s National team was eliminated from the FIFA U-20 World Cup after falling 2-0 to Uruguay.

The United States defense had held strong all tournament long, not allowing a goal. However, the United States conceded a 21st minute goal to Uruguay by Anderson Duarte. The United States scored an own goal in the 56th minute of the tournament when Josh Wydner tried clearing the ball away from net and missed chances inside Uruguay’s attacking third. Uruguay maintained more than 60 percent of possession and created more chances with pace. The United States threatened with set-pieces in the second half but failed to convert on their opportunities.

The United States fall to 1-4-0 against Uruguay all-time at the FIFA World Cup.

 

United States U-20 Women’s National Team Falls to Mexico 2-1 in CONCACAF Final

The United States U-20 Women’s National Team fell short of capturing CONCACAF gold after falling 2-1 to Mexico in the CONCACAF U-20 Championship. The United States played cohesively in the first have by maintaining possession of the ball, but ultimately couldn’t finish chances in the attacking third to catch Mexico.

The United States outshot Mexico 14-9 with only four on target. Mexico didn’t have much attacking prowess as the United States maintained most of the possession, but still efficiently netted two goals out of three shots on target.

The United States had a golden opportunity to convert a penalty kick from the spot, but ultimately missed and lead to a goal for Mexico shortly after. After the United States had an 80th minute goal to tie the game, Mexico broke hearts after netting an 88th minute winner before six minutes of stoppage time. Mexico would go on to win the match 2-1 to win the CONCACAF U-20 Championships with the United States finishing second and Canada claiming third place at the tournament.

All three countries will now wait and see who FIFA names as the host for the 2024 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
