Draw sets groups for Under-20 Championship


Recommended Posts

Defending champion Costa Rica will head Group C and play Canada and Guadeloupe in the first round of the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship, while five-time champion Mexico will play Trinidad & Tobago and Cuba in Group D.

Friday's draw at the InterContinental Hotel in Guatemala City set the matchups for the round-robin play with the United States facing Panama and Suriname in Group B, and host Guatemala taking on Central American rival Honduras and Jamaica in Group A.

The tournament, set for March 28-April 10 in Guatemala City, will determine the region's four qualifiers for the U-20 World Cup in Colombia July 29-August 20.

Like the U-17 championship tournament format, the top two teams in each group will advance to the quarterfinals April 5-6 with the winners qualifying for Colombia.

Tough draw for us if we finish second it will be the mighty Mexico. Could be one of those goals for and againest games when we take on Guadeloupe.

Costa Rica doesn't have a strong team this qualifying cycle. We have a team with more than enough talent to qualify, there is no excuse for not qualifying. The only question mark is our abysmal coaching.

And thats a big question! The good/bad thing about a tournament like this is that one knockout game to make the finals, we have a good team and we should be able to get those results.
