But this U-17 team continues to roll over it's opposition no matter who it is. They have almost won every tournament since finishing third at the Copa Naciones de Mexico last summer.

About Colombia's PK takers:

The first Pk hit the crossbar

The second was saved by the US U-17 keeper Will Pulisic

The third hit the post.

Something to ponder. Due to the success of this group of U17's a lot of them are getting some serious European looks. How much would it suck if because they've been so great, and gotten into some great european situations, since CONCACAF doesnt follow the FIFA calender these guys arent released during CONCACAF U17 qualifying and we have to go with a B- team. That would be demoralizing.

Chris Pulisic's contract with Dortmund allow him to leave for U-17 duty. I would imagine it's the same with Barbir at WBA. Gallardo has been allowed to leave from Monterrey whenever called up, and Haji Wright will probably be able to as well wherever he ends up(rumors are Schalke).

I wouldn't be to worried about it.

Now at the U-20 level it's a tad different because some guys are already breaking into first teams.

Amazing game between Mexico and Brazil. As for qualifying I hope they take their A team the more time they play together the better. As for gallardo he has a broken leg don't know how long he will be out. But we have pretty good depth. But come 2015 wc we will need him he is a game changer and makes everyone around him better. I k.ow there's a few euro players that haven't gotten looks yet and maybe will when they have a camp in euro like cash Wallace for example.

Agreed the camera coverage has been ridiculously poor.

They are trying to be too fancy with all the angles and use fade transitioning when they can't even get cameramen to follow the ball haha.

I'm not familiar with this age group and my Spanish (lack thereof) makes it a bit hard for me to understand the names. Who's our No. 10? Or if you have it, a formation with names por favor mis amigos.
