The United States Men’s U-20s will take on Fiji today in their second group stage match at the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup. The USMNT U-20s were able to squeak out a 1-0 victory in their opener on Saturday behind a goal by Jonathan Gomez in the 3rd minute of second half stoppage time.
With some 3rd place teams making it to the knockout stage, the U-20s will clinch a likely place in the Round of 16 with a win this afternoon against Fiji, who finished runners-up in the 2022 Oceania U-20 Championship to qualify. The United States have an opportunity to once again put a clean match together so that they can all but qualify for the knockout stage.
