Game two

It's the second match of group A for the United States under-17 national team as they take on Croatia. They'll be looking to atone for their poor performance in the first match against Nigeria, in which they were dominated and lost, 2-0. Despite all of the individual talent within this crop of players, this team doesn't seem to be a cohesive unit. That will need to change quickly if they hope to make it to the knockout rounds.

Richie Williams makes five changes from the side that lost to Nigeria. Highly-touted forward Haji Wright loses his place as Alejandro Zendejas swaps to the wing and Brandon Vazquez replaces Joe Gallardo up top. Auston Trusty is suspended with a red card and is replaced by Danny Barbir, while Tyler Adams replaces his Red Bulls mate Matthew Olosunde at right back. Fulham's Luca de la Torre enters the midfield to add some creativity, while Thomas McCabe comes in to add some defensive steel.
