The United States Under-20 national team begins its quest to book a summer trip to the U-20 World Cup in Colombia tonight with its opening match of the CONCACAF championships against Suriname (8 p.m, ESPN3.com/ESPN Deportes).

Thomas Rongen's charges will face Panama on April 2 in its other group-stage match before potentially advancing to the quarterfinals, where the winners all qualify for the World Cup.

Canada and Mexico kicked off their qualifying campaigns on the bottom half of the CONCACAF bracket in triumphant fashion on Monday. The Canadians dropped Guadeloupe, 2-1, in their Group C opener; Mexico blanked Cuba, 3-0, in their Group D match.

What's your prediction for tonight's match? Who do you hope to see get the start? Which four nations do you see qualifying for the U-20 World Cup from CONCACAF?
