2023 U20 World Cup


Recommended Posts

at the risk of jinxing the soccer gawdz here, i love the cohesion of this team

i know fuckall about Mikey Varas but he has this side in outstanding form

from the fed roster announcement:

The roster features players from 17 clubs, including 10 from Major League Soccer, led by three players from the Philadelphia Union and two each from LA Galaxy and the San Jose Earthquakes. Six players are based abroad: two each in England and Germany and one player each in Croatia and Spain. A total of 12 states are represented on the roster, with five players hailing from California and four from Texas. A native of Anchorage, Vargas is a rare World Cup roster selection from Alaska.

Three alternates will travel with the U.S. to Argentina to train with the team prior to the tournament: defender Thomas Williams (Orlando City SC), midfielder Moses Nyeman (Real Salt Lake) and forward Korede Osundina (Orange County SC).

Man didn’t realize the game was yesterday. Not that I would have been able to watch it. Good win, that gave us first in the group. With Ecuador’s beat down of Fiji, a loss would have dropped us to 3rd, drawing a group winner in the next round (C - likely Colombia or D - Nigeria or Brazil).

Granted we are going to draw 3rd from either groups A or D. And D will be a tough draw (likely Italy). A is New Zealand. Root for Colombia and Japan today.

If Japan goes through as a 3rd place team, we draw Nigeria. Otherwise we draw New Zealand. If groups E or F go through, C will not.
