The United States under-20 men’s national team is 90 minutes away booking their spot in the World Cup in South Korea. After beating Mexico for the first time in 31 years, Tab Ramos’ side are very much in control of their own destiny. El Tri got their three points with lopsided 5-1 win over El Salvador on Wednesday, leaving the U.S. with many different scenarios to clinch a spot in both the World Cup and this tournament’s final match.

As Paul Kennedy points out via Brian Sciaretta, the Baby Yanks would qualify for a World Cup spot even with a loss of two goals or less to El Salvador today.

With Mexico having a goal differential of +3, the U.S. would need a draw to clinch top spot in the group and a spot in the final of the CONCACAF Championship.

There are never any sure things, especially with this particular U.S. U-20 team, who have seen their ups and downs in this tournament. If they come out with the high press that suffocated Mexico’s high-flying attack, then they shouldn’t have any problem today. If the same passive team that came out in the first match against Panama rears it’s head again, there could be some worries.
