Barring an epic collapse this is huge. U20s beat Mexico, u17s beat Mexico. Tide could be turning back in our favor. U17s look dangerous. Sargent and Carlton are so strong for their age.

For Weah to be coming off the bench and supposedly high on the list at PSG it says a ton about the up coming talent. Granted u17 rarely means anything but shows the development has improved, and for all of Klinnsmans faults this is not one.

4-3 final...we gave up a shambolic own goal in stoppage...no worries, we got the win.

Sargent with two goals in the first half

half time score 2-2

Ferri with a bomb and Akinola on the counter assisted by Sargent in the second half

Sargent and Carlton will be two great cases for MLS in the next couple of years. Neither has European Union passports (or from what I've read no path to get one) so they likely wont be going to Europe until they are at least 20-21. It'll be up to MLS to develop these guys into USNT caliber players.

Carlton looks to be in a good spot as you know martino will give him some playing time later in the year (once Carlton is done with U17 duties).

Sargent is currently with St Louis Academy. I've read conflicting things about SKC and FC Dallas both claiming him as home grown. If he goes to SKC I'll be worried as they seem to hate to play anyone under 21 (see EPB). Dallas would be good as you know he'll get opportunities there.

Either way it will be interesting to see how MLS develops these two in the next 4 years.

Not sure why you think that Sargent isn't likely to go to Europe before he's 20-21. Without an EU passport he just needs to wait to sign a contract until he's 18 like Haji Wright and Weston McKennie.

Playing in the UK would be difficult due to their work permit requirements but he could easily go to mainland Europe. The fact that he is not part of an MLS academy leads me to believe that he's waiting until he turns 18 to head to Europe but this is purely speculation.

Akinola on the other hand is well integrated into the TFC system so it seems more likely that he'll be around MLS for a few years than Sargent.

While Sargent could go the route you mention I dont think its as likely.

For one the players you mentioned all trialed in Europe and essentially signed pre-18 contracts. To my knowledge Sargent hasnt done that. You'd think if he was just waiting to turn 18 we'd have heard rumors of interest. We will surely find out in the next year either way. Just what I see happening.

I know everyone is going nuts over Sargent/Carlton, rightly so, these guys have Dempsey Ethos in them. They are trying "shit" all over the place. I love it.

But Durkin and Ferri remind me of what I loved about Trapp, but instead of waiting for a 22 year old to blossom, Durkin already looks cool on the ball and is getting time iwth DC United.

I'm getting excited. Yes, potentially, way too early to call, potentially we'll see one of them move EPB back to his CB spot in 2 to 5 years.

There is a ton of competition brewing for CB spots over the next 2 to 5 years.
Brooks: Will be entering his prime (25-29) where he'll have the experience to go with the physical abilities.
CCV: At 18-19 is already making the bench for a top 4 club. Hopefully will be a starter for them in 2 years time.
Zimmerman: (25-29) Is part of the best CB partnership in MLS and should continue to improve as he gains experience.
Miazga: (24-28) Finally getting consistent minutes in Europe, but likely to be another season on Loan before he ultimately transfers away from Chelsea.
Redding & Glad: Both are already contributing to their clubs and performing well.
EPB: Needs to start getting games w/ SKC or another loan to help continue his development.
BarBir: Another young player working his way up the development chain and been performing fairly well.
Dark-horses: Birnbaum, Hedges, Parker, Alvarado, Dean...could all work their way into the conversations or revitalize their chances over the next couple years. They're good players, but need things to change/brake just right.

Hard to imagine Redding, Glad, EPB, and BarBir ahead of Birnbaum and Hedges in the next 2 years. . .

These kids are a cut above previous u17 teams in every way moving forward. James Sands is solid as a central defender too.

I hope this tourney doesnt shade Weah (and his dad's influence) away from US. You could see some shots of him not looking very happy at the hard tackles and poor field conditions.

I remember reading about Sands and his time at midfield too. Impressed Viera.

U15 boys beat Rngland today to win the tourneo delle nazzioni.

Gio Reyna( Claudio Reynas son) got the game winner in a 2-1 win. Claudio's son is really really good.
