Semifinal Opponent Set

The U.S now knows their semifinal opponent as Group B games concluded tonight at Marvin Lee Stadium in Trinidad.....

Opponent: Trinidad & Tobago
Date: Friday, March 13
Time: Under the Lights at 8 p.m. local/ET
At Stake: A trip to the CONCACAF U-20 final on March 15

That's right... the US will take on the hosts under the lights at Marvin Lee Stadium. Should be a great atmosphere!

T&T tied Mexico 2-2 to give them five points in the group, just behind Costa Rica who won the group with seven points. Costa Rica eliminated Canada earlier in the night with a 2-1 win over the Canucks. Mexico was eliminated on Monday evening after they picked up their second loss and finished the group in last place with one point.

I have a serious question. How can we be at the semi final stage of the U20 qualifiers and there are still no highlights? What about action pics from the games? Personally, I'd much rather see that than pics of the hotel. This blog is becoming more and more disappointing to check.

CONCACAF owns the video rights to the tournament, so we're unable to publish any in-game footage of the tournament. As such, unfortunately you won't be seeing any of the U-20 highlights on ussoccer.com.

Soon, however, we'll have some photos on the website, as our photographer has headed down to T&T for the semifinal (and hopefully final!). Make sure to head over to the photos section of ussoccer.com after the next two games. We'll probably have a few here as well...
