Recommended Posts

Starts in a couple of months. 

USA is in a group with Qatar, Nigeria, and Ukraine, which should be manageable.

As every other year, I look forward to this. My favourite tournament in football.

Last time I picked Venezuela as the team to win it. This time I'm not sure I'll make a proper prediction. The competition is more evened out I reckon. France will probably do well as they usually do in this tournament. I also have faith in Colombia to make a deep run. I wasn't convinced by them in the Sudamericano due to their lack of ability to score, but with Cucho Hernandez to play this time they will be a force to be reckoned with.

I'm also looking forward to New Zealand. I'm not sure how far they'll go but with Sarpreet Singh on their side, I'm sure they'll at least make it past the group.

Jun Nishikawa... remember that name. 17 years old playmaker who I saw in the AFC U16 and is a very talented player.

Looking forward to seeing Pinamonti and Pellegrini. 

Pellegrini played a few times for Roma at the start of the season if I remember correctly.

Mexico vs Italy is perhaps more interesting, but I've got Tahiti vs Senegal!

Match hasn't even started and the commentator has already pissed me off...

"It's a great achievement for Tahiti to have gotten here".

2 Oceania teams qualify, who was the other one besides New Zealand going to be then!?

There is still a small chance of a draw although Italy deserves it. They have been the better team. 

Yeah - this group for Italy is talented AF. 

I don't know a ton about your U-20 squad. 

These Italian kits are sexy as hell.

Mexico actually look quite good this time around. If they go out it will be because they are in a tough group, not cos they are "bad". Definitely an improvement on the last U20 squad, which was absolutely dreadful.

Just saw the scores. Ecuador were champions of the U20 Sudamericano, but I see they are choking away their chance like they usually do in these tournaments.
