U.S. U-20s Crush Suriname

Clearly, Suriname’s best players are in the Netherlands: the U.S. U-20 team demolished their CONCACAF rivals 4-0 in the opening game of the regional championships on Tuesday.

In addition to the four goals, the American team—which includes 16 professionals (eight from MLS) on its 20-player roster—hit the woodwork three times in the rout. Highlights here:

The U.S. plays Panama on Saturday (6:00 p.m. EST, ESPN Deportes, ESPN3.com) as it continues its quest to qualify for an eighth consecutive U-20 World Cup.

The four semifinalists of the 12-team CONCACAF event will earn berths in the U-20 World Cup, which kicks off in Colombia on July 29.
