After dropping their first two matches to Argentina 2-1 and Uruguay 1-0, the U.S. sits in third place in Group B of the Campeonato Sudamericano de Futbol Sub-16 Tournament with zero points, ahead of Ecuador by virtue of a better goal differential (-2 to –4). The U.S. will need a win in their final group match against Ecuador on Saturday night to gain three points and put them in position for a chance to move onto the quarterfinals. Kickoff has been moved ahead to 5 p.m. ET at Estadio Villa Alegre in Encarnacion.
