Absolutely agree @Dominic94, it does suck, too damn closed from making it and that typical mental breakdown expected from young inexperienced players put an end to any dream of a magical run in this tourney... All in all, a great performance and we left a great impression, I bet many in here myself included did not expect us to get the results that we did... Man, in all honesty I was even a little fearful we were gonna finish bottom last and battle for the 11th and 12th spot instead of 5th & 6th (which pretty much is for the nations that barely miss out on the semis)... I was quite impressed, but still cringing at that miss opportunity of advancing to semis, those damn Japanese really showed some grit after we scored and controlled possession very well throughout... We did lack a little bit of that attacking instinct displayed in the first two games, particularly after we scored the first goal, we could've done better imo... We had some cheapish turnovers/giveaways too, which didn't help at all... I really hope we get that 5th spot, albeit would be another tough one indeed, nevertheless a good experience for a lot of these lads.... Bloody Turkey U20 man!!!!... Can beat Japan U21 & Portugal U19, yet couldn't beat us, lol and yet they advance!!! And in terms of Verhoeven, now I see why many folks in here were cringing when he attended those youth camps with the USMNT YNTs... He's got some skill and that flair in his game as witnessed by the 2 goals we scored in this tourney... Very impressed with him and hopefully he stays committed to us long-term, heard also he is doing well with Fresno at USL and saw a great assist from him before that tourney leading to a golazo by Fresno... A win on Thurs, could really help convince him in staying with us post-Toulon I would hope.. Wonder when he will crack the Whitecaps 1st team.. If we keep most of this core for next year's U-20 2019 Concacaf Championships, I think we stand a chance... Looking forward to it next year and a future participation in this tourney!!!
