2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup draw
   February 10, 2015 (6:35 AM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post
 

Various US national teams have had some bad luck when it comes to World Cup draws in recent years, including the US U-20s getting Spain, France and Ghana in 2013.  But that all changed last night.

FIFA held the 2015 U-20 World Cup draw in Auckland last night and the US is in Group A along with New Zealand (host nation), Ukraine (they are not weak) and Myanmar.  A little bit easier than in 2013.

The US will begin group play on May 30 against Myanmar in Whangarei.  Their second game will be on June 2 against New Zealand in Auckland and they finish off group play on June 5 against Ukraine in Auckland.  It looks like the game times will be 12 AM Eastern, 3 AM Eastern and 3 AM Eastern (perfect for late night owls on the West Coast)  All three games will be on Fox in some form (likely Fox Sports 1 or Fox Sports 2).

The US will be looking to advance out of the group stage for the first time since Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore and Freddy Adu led the 2007 team to the quarterfinals.

Here is the complete draw:

Group A
New Zealand
Ukraine
USA
Myanmar

Group B
Argentina
Panama
CAF 3
Austria

Group C
Qatar
Colombia
Portugal
CAF 4

Group D
Mexico
CAF 2
Uruguay
Serbia

Group E
CAF Champion
Brazil
Korea DPR
Hungary

Group F
Germany
Fiji
Uzbekistan
Honduras

The four CAF representatives will be determined at the upcoming African U-20 Championship 2015, which will take place in Senegal between 8 and 22 March.

    if i remember correctly myanmar had the fortune of hosting the AFC U19s, so they’re even weaker than first glance might suggest

  2. Dr phil says:

    Daniil I was just going to say the same thing. On top of hosting they had the kindest of draws and only squeaked by. I wonder if they’re much better than a team like Jamaica or Trinidad. Probably worse actually. I don’t usually say a team should win by alot, but they’ll be bitterly disappointed if they don’t win by 4 or 5 goals.
