All is right with the world. The United States and Mexico once again stand as the two preeminent soccer teams in CONCACAF, at least in the U-17 age group. These two bitter rivals meet for the second time in the 2017 regional championship. The U.S. squeaked out a thrilling 4-3 victory over their nemesis in the group stage. Nevertheless, both advanced and cruised through the classification stage to clinch berths to the World Cup and advance to this final.
With the ultimate goal already achieved, this match is for nothing more than bragging rights and the honor of calling yourself champion of the region. The Americans will be looking to complete their perfect tournament by going 6-0, while El Tri will be out to prove that the group result was a fluke. If that match is any indication, this final should be high in entertainment value for those able to watch. Who is U-17 king of CONCACAF? Let’s find out. This match kicks off at 4:00 p.m. ET and can be seen on Univision Deportes, YouTube, and Twitter.
