USA vs Nigeria Live
The Super Eagles smashed Qatar 4-0 in their first match. While it’s possible for the U.S. to still advance to the knockout rounds without winning or drawing this match thanks to the format, it would not be ideal to leave their World Cup fate up to math.
It’s easy to see why there’s so much attention being paid to this U-20 crop. Individually, the whole squad looks packed with quality. From the players at big European clubs like Konrad de la Fuente and Tim Weah to the MLS players such as Paxton Pomykal. The quality is obvious. It’s just a matter of consistency. The passing move displayed on the team’s lone goal against Ukraine was inspiring. We just need to see more of that and less defensive mistakes.
