The United States U17s Advance to the Knockout Round
After a tough start against Spain the United States’ U17 side was able to stack up 1 – 0 wins against Malawi and the United Arab Emirates. The United States will advance after securing second place in their group. A skillful side that is able to move the ball around and keep possession, the United States kids have drawn criticism from some for lacking a clinical finishing edge, but they seem to excel at moving the ball around (something we haven’t been able to say about many US sides). The midfield pairing of Luis Gil and Marlon Duran have impressed and hopefully these two and other standout players like goalscores Jack McInerney and Alex Shinsky will continue to shine.
The United States Men’s U17 side will take on Italy on Wednesday, November 4th at 10 am.
