The US U-20s look to end a two-tournament streak of US youth teams failing to qualify for international tournaments (2011 U-20s, 2012 U-23s). They’ll have to get past Costa Rica and Haiti in the group stage.
Notably, the only match that really matters (the quarterfinal) would be against Canada, Nicaragua, or Cuba (likely Cuba, if I was betting), which is considerably more favorable than playing host Guatemala as the last U-20 squad had to. (Of course, the U-23s only had to get past El Salvador or Canada at home in order to make the semifinal round which they failed to do. So nothing’s a guarantee with youth teams.)
