USA U-23s vs. Canada: Match Night Commentary

USACrest  CanadaLogo

The U.S. Men's Under-23 national team returns to action tonight in CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying with a showdown against Canada (7pm, Universal Sports Network/mun2).

The Americans opened the tournament with a resounding 6-0 victory against Cuba, while Canada struggled through a scoreless draw with El Salvador. A victory against Canada would automatically qualify the United States for the tournament semifinals. A win tonight would also mean the United States could clinch first place in Group A with a draw against El Salvador on Monday.

The United States made two changes to the lineup that faced Cuba, with Juan Agudelo out of the tournament with a torn meniscus suffered in the Cuba match. Teal Bunbury will replace Agudelo and take on the same country he once represented on the youth level. Jorge Villafana replaces Kofi Sarkodie in the U.S. lineup.

    Hey, smart guy. You have any more dumb things to say now that we just go eliminated? Just wondering…Development, blah blah blah. The US team lived up to the lameness of your excuses and analysis.
