US U-20 vs. Fluminense Highlights

The US U-20 team is headed to the final of the Dallas Cup after defeating Fluminense 3-2 in added extra time.  The US had a 2-1 lead, but surrendered a goal in stoppage time to send it to overtime before Rubio Rubin scored the eventual winner.  Rubin finished the day with two goals while Ben Spencer scored the other goal for the US.  The US will next face River Plate on Sunday in the final.

    Rubin is just plain good. He may be starting right away for Utrecht next season.

    As others have pointed out I don’t know how impressive it is that the US is squeaking by club teams. It’s not they’re Barcelona or Chelsea with a multinational youth academy.

  3. Matt says:

    The counterpoint to that would be that the US, a team that was thrown together last week, is playing a bunch of teams who have been playing together all season (and in previous seasons).

    That ^.

    Great work with the gifs

    Another counterpoint would be that Brazilian clubs have generally been much more successful at the Dallas Cup than their European counterparts. Besides Fulham’s academy winning last year, Brazilian academies have seen better results. Both Chelsea and Barcelona have played in the Dallas Cup in years previous and haven’t won. A result against a Brazilian club holds just as much weight as a result against Europe’s elite, in my opinion.
