US U-20s Get Ready for El Salvador

Here's a look at how El Salvador has done so far in the tournament:

1/10 - Tied Honduras 2-2
1/12 - Tied Haiti 1-1
1/15 - Defeated Canada 3-2
1/19 - Lost to Mexico 3-1
1/22 - Defeated Cuba 2-0

They've had goals scored by:

Juan Barahona (Santa Tecia F.C.) - 3
Jose Villavicencio (C.D. FAS) - 3
Bryan Pérez (C.D. Luis Angel Firpo) - 1
Romilio Hernandez (Louisville) - 1
Nelson Moreno (Club Social Ciclón del Golfo) - 1

And if you're thinking that El Salvador is going to roll over for the U.S., just look back to 2012 when the U.S. U-23s missed out on the Olympics when they surrendered a 94th minute equalizer at home to El Salvador's Jaime Alas which knocked the U.S. out of the tournament. And this was a USA squad that had players named Bill Hamid, Perry Kitchen, Freddy Adu, Mix Diskerud, Juan Agudelo, Joe Corona, Brek Shea, Teal Bunbury, Joe Gyau, and Terrence Boyd. Today's match with a trip to the World Cup on the line is scheduled for 5:00 in Jamaica.
