[watch live!] Today: USA U-20 - Uruguay U-20 live 4 June 2023
9 up front. Darren Yapi is available to play that role, but the U. attack has looked bright in the absence of a true target striker, with Diego Luna and Cade Cowell looking exceptionally dangerous working together up top. Jack McGlynn, Josh Wynder, Niko Tsakiris, and Luna are all one yellow card away from a suspension and would be forced to sit out the semifinal should they be cautioned again. The good news is that the yellow card slate is wiped clean after the quarterfinal stage. USA projected starting lineup (3-5-2): Slonina (GK) — Che, Craig, Wynder — Gomez, Edelman, Paredes, McGlynn, Wiley — Luna, Cowell.
There are just two players on the entire Uruguay U-20 roster playing for a club outside of their home country. Center-back Alan Matturro plays for Italian club Genoa, having made his Serie B debut this season, while fellow defender Facundo Gonzalez plays for the youth team of La Liga side Valencia. Defensive midfielder Fabricio Diaz, who captains the team, is considered a top prospect.
