This morning the US Under 20's beat Argentina Under 20's 1 - 0 in group play of the World Youth Championships in The Netherlands. They play Egypt and Germany in their other 2 group matches.
The game was on Fox Soccer Channel. It was a pretty good game and a good look to the future of US soccer, Adu, Barrett, Wynne and Ianni(sp?) all stood out. Gaven really disappointed and the US goalkeeper Westberg was not very impressive another kid named Hunter Freeman really looked out of his league, yet still never got beaten.
I think Wynne is very likely the starting right back of the US teams future, he was very impressive, strong in the air and dangerous on runs out of the back. He may shift over to centerback due to his size but I think he'd be a great right back. Spector looked good too (from Man U.) but he got hurt early and left before halftime--he'll be a regular in the national teams lineup very shortly. Barrett will be the heir to Brian McBrides role, he was big and strong and good in the air, might be a good complement to Eddie Johnson
. Adu had some moments of absolute brilliance, the Argentinans had to resort to hard fouls to keep him in check...unfortunately he missed a PK.
