Good group. I think they will rise to the challenge and win the group.

Way too early to be saying what groups are hard or not. U17 is a complete wild card. Other than brazil and Nigeria no team is consistently good at that tourney.

Australia came in 2nd once. Colombia has a few semi finalist appearances. Sweden was the best Euro team two years ago. Switzerland won in 2009 coming out of a group with Brazil & Mexico.

You never know at this age group

Agreed. Also these tournaments are about identifying individual talent.

Got beat 5-1 yesterday by Mexico's U17.

Pulisic, Barbir and de la Torre are all not at this camp.

Just shows our lack of quality depth...

It comes from Richie ignoring the top prospects that pop up.. He really needs to take a page out of Ramos's book and give everyone a shot.

Not to talk smack but mexico has a better squad/depth than our sub 17's from what i heard Mexico had close to a B team in this game doubt Pulisic, Torre, Barbir would of made a difference. I mean they won the Concacaf 17 title no surprise there.

Fox Sports & NBC Telemundo have broadcasting rights. Not sure if they'll show all games, just USA games, FS1 or FS2 but they have the rights.

Probably not. Just wish Kai or Faiq were given a fair shot.
