BRADENTON, Fla. – After securing a berth to the 2019 FIFA Under-17 World Cup with a 3-0 win over Panama, the U.S. will set its sights on claiming the 2019 Concacaf U-17 Championship.
The Americans face Canada in a rematch of the teams’ tournament opener in the semifinals at IMG Academy at 5:30 p.m. ET Tuesday.
With a win, the U.S. would advance to its 10th confederation final at this age level.
