The United States U-20, if they wish to advance to the U-20 World Cup, have one more opponent to get through, El Salvador. Here's how both teams got here.

USA: After a rocky start with 1 point from the first 2 games, the USA put together 3 straight wins to close out Group A as the second best team in the group, beating out Guatemala in Goal Difference.

  • Match 1: USA 1-1 Guatemala
  • Match 2: Panama 1-0 USA
  • Match 3: Aruba 0-8 USA
  • Match 4: Jamaica 0-2 USA
  • Match 5: USA 1-0 Trinadad & Tobago

Group Stage Results: 3-1-1 (10 points), 12 GF, 2 GA, +10 GD, #2 in Group A

El Salvador: Opened up with 2 straight draws against Honduras and Haiti. They won match #3, edging out Canada 3-2 before losing to the automatic qualifier from group B, Mexico. They won on their last match day to secure their spot.

  • Match 1: Honduras 2-2 El Salvador
  • Match 2: El Salvador 1-1 Haiti
  • Match 3: El Salvador 3-2 Canada

The winner of the match will advance to the 2015 U-20 World Cup. The US is the obvious favorite, coming on strong in the last three matches. The defense has been stout not allowing a goal in 270 minutes. The New York Red Bulls' Matt Miazga helped with 180 minutes played in the last two matches, and will be expected to start again in the final match of the tournament.
