U.S. U-20 MNT Looks to Advance Through Group Stage Against Ghana in 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup

U.S. U-20 MNT CAPS OFF GROUP STAGE AGAINST GHANA IN 2013 FIFA U-20 WORLD CUP: The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team will contest its final Group A match of the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup against Ghana on Thursday, June 27, in Kayseri, Turkey. The game at Kadir Has Stadium kicks off at 8 p.m. local (1 p.m. ET) and will be broadcast live on ESPNU, WatchESPN and Univision Deportes. Fans can follow the match on ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker and via Twitter @ussoccer_ynt.

“We knew coming into this World Cup that we were in a very difficult group,” U-20 MNT head coach Tab Ramos said. “We wanted to make sure that we went into the third game with an opportunity to advance and I think we’ve put ourselves in position to do that. We’re very happy where we are and now it comes down to one game.”

The U.S. is hoping to advance through the group stage for the ninth occasion in the history of the FIFA U-20 World Cup and FIFA World Youth Championship. The last time the USA qualified for the Round of 16 came during the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada en route to a seventh-place finish.

QUALIFICATION SCENARIOS: The U.S. U-20 MNT is in must-win mode heading into the Ghana game. A victory would give the USA four points in the group stage and a finish in second or third place in Group A, pending the result of Thursday’s Spain-France match. France (1-0-1, 4 points) would need to lose significantly to Spain (2-0-0, 6 points) in order to fall out of second place based on goal differential. France is currently plus-2 and the U.S. is minus-3. Four points would likely be enough for the U.S. to advance to the Round of 16 as one of the four third-place teams.

The U-20 MNT could potentially advance to the knockout rounds with a draw and two points in group play, but to do so the USA would need substantial help from the teams in Group E and F to produce a third-place team with two or fewer points. The USA’s minus-3 goal differential also would be a major obstacle to overcome.

The U.S. would be eliminated from the tournament with a loss to Ghana since that would bump the USA to fourth place in the group.

GROUP A ROUNDUP: The U.S. is coming off a 1-1 draw against France in both teams’ second Group A match of the FIFA U-20 World Cup. France appeared to be on its way to a victory on the strength of Yaya Sanogo’s penalty kick in the 48th minute, but second-half sub Daniel Cuevas made an impact with an 85th-minute equalizer to earn the United States a point and keep it in the running to advance through the group stage. Spain solidified its spot at the top of the group with a 1-0 victory against Ghana. Jese notched his third goal of the tournament with a 16th-minute tally.

  • The U.S. is winless in the first two games of the tournament for only the second time in its history. The only other time that has occurred was in its first appearance in this event in October of 1981 in Australia, when the USA posted a 0-3 loss to Uruguay in the opening match, followed by a 1-1 draw against Qatar. Both matches were played in Brisbane.
  • In the 12 previous U-20 World Cups, the U.S. has a 4-6-2 record in their third and final group match. In the last four World Cups (’03, ’05, ’07 and ’09), the U.S. is 3-1-0 in their final group match.
  • The USA is has allowed a goal in 11 straight U-20 World Cup games. The last time the USA posted a shutout was during the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship in Holland, when the squad had three straight clean sheets on June 11, 14 and 18.
  • The U.S. U-20 MNT is 18-25-7 all-time in FIFA World Youth Championship and FIFA U-20 World Cup competition.

ROSTER NOTES

  • Daniel Cuevas scored his fifth goal this year and first of the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup when he rallied the USA to a 1-1 draw against France on June 24. Cuevas is tied for the goal scoring lead this year with Jose Villarreal.
  • Villarreal has eight career goals in 13 U-20 MNT matches to lead this U-20 World Cup roster. He had a two-goal performance to pace the U.S. to a 4-2 victory against Canada in the quarterfinals of the 2013 CONCACAF U-20 Championship that officially qualified the team for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey.
  • Midfielder Luis Gil scored his third goal of the year and fifth career for the U-20 MNT with his tally against Spain in the opening 4-1 loss at the FIFA U-20 World Cup on June 21.
  • Midfielder Wil Trapp wore the captain’s armband for the first time this year. Defender Caleb Stanko had captained the first match of the U-20 World Cup, but the USA went with the center back duo of Shane O’Neill and Javan Torre against France. Trapp is the only U-20 player to have played in every match this year.
  • O’Neill started and played the full 90 minutes during the 1-1 draw against France. He returned from a red card suspension, which he was issued in overtime of the USA’s 3-1 loss to Mexico in the final of the 2013 CONCACAF U-20 Championship on March 3 in Puebla, Mexico.
  • Ten players on the U-20 World Cup roster play professionally for Major League Soccer teams. Most recently, Danny Garcia signed a homegrown contract with FC Dallas on June 18, 2013. Other MLS ties include Kellyn Acosta (FC Dallas), Gil (Real Salt Lake), Mikey Lopez (Sporting Kansas City), O’Neill (Colorado Rapids), Victor Pineda (Chicago Fire), Oscar Sorto (LA Galaxy), Trapp (Columbus Crew), Villarreal (LA Galaxy) and DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders).
  • Seventeen players have ties to the U.S. Soccer Development Academy, including three Academy players who have competed during the 2012-13 season: Acosta (FC Dallas), Sorto (LA Galaxy) and goalkeeper Zach Steffen (FC DELCO).
  • Six players on this U-20 World Cup roster have won Development Academy titles: Acosta and Garcia of the FC Dallas 2011-12 U-17/18 team; Javan Torre and Villarreal of the 2010-11 Pateadores U-17/18 team; Pineda with the 2009-10 Chicago Fire U-15/16 squad; and Stanko for the 2009-10 Vardar U-17/18 team.
  • Four players have represented the U.S. in a World Cup. Gil was a member of the USA’s 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup team, while Kendall McIntosh, Rodriguez and Acosta played for the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup squad.


CAUTION SITUATION

  • U.S. midfielder Benji Joya is serving a one-game suspension on Thursday after he picked up his second yellow card of the tournament during the USA’s 1-1 draw against France on June 24.
  • Five U.S. players are currently sitting on a yellow card through the group stage: Mikey Lopez, Juan Pablo Ocegueda, Oscar Sorto and Jose Villarreal. Should any of those players pick up a yellow card against Ghana, they would be ineligible for the Round of 16 should the USA advance.
  • Ghana’s Joseph Attamah, Yiadom Boakye and Francis Narh have each been issued a yellow card in the group stage.
  • Single yellow cards are expunged after the quarterfinal stage.

USA’S U-20 WORLD CUP HISTORY

  • The 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup marks the USA’s 13th appearance in this tournament. ( 13 for ’13: A Retrospective Look at the USA’s U-20 World Cup History )
  • The U.S. has advanced through the group stage of the tournament eight times.
  • In 1981, the USA debuted in the FIFA World Youth Championship, playing 1981 runner-up Qatar to a 1-1 draw but dropping its other games to Uruguay and Poland. Mark Devey became the first U.S. player to score in the tournament during the Qatar draw on Oct. 6.
  • Thirty years ago, current U-20 MNT head coach Tab Ramos and U-20 assistant coach Hugo Perez suited up for the U.S. in the 1983 FIFA World Youth Championship. Perez scored one of the U.S. goals during the team’s opening 3-2 loss to Uruguay on June 3. Ramos was only 16 years old in that competition.
  • The U.S. earned its most lopsided victory in a FIFA World Youth Championship or FIFA U-20 World Cup against Turkey on March 7, 1993, a 6-0 victory in Group C play. Chris Faklaris scored three goals, Miles Joseph added two and Imad Baba opened the scoring.
  • In the 1999 FIFA World Youth Championship, Taylor Twellman set a U.S. record with four goals in the tournament. He scored two goals during a 3-1 victory against Cameroon on April 11, followed by another brace during a 3-2 loss to eventual tournament winner Spain in the Round of 16.
  • Twellman, Eddie Johnson (2003) and Jozy Altidore (2007) are tied for the most goals scored in a U-20 World Cup or World Youth Championship with four apiece.
  • The USA’s 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship team posted three shutouts in Group D play to win that stage of the tournament in the Netherlands. Goalkeeper Quentin Westberg manned the net for those three clean sheets.
  • The best offensive performance in the FIFA U-20 World Cup came in 2007, when the USA outscored its opponents 12-6 for the tournament and won Group D. Altidore had four tallies, including two goals during a 2-1 victory against Brazil on July 6.

HOW U.S. ADVANCED TO TURKEY: The U.S. U-20 MNT grew throughout the CONCACAF U-20 Championship in Puebla, Mexico, culminating with an impressive second-place showing at the tournament. The team had a somewhat sluggish start to the tournament in holding off Haiti for a 2-1 victory in the Group A opener on Feb. 18, but the USA responded with a 1-0 victory against Costa Rica on Feb. 22 to win the group and advance to the all-important quarterfinals as the four CONCACAF semifinalists moved on to the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup. That set the stage for a Feb. 26 match against its neighbor to the north, Canada, and the U.S. offense scored four goals in a 25-minute span en route to a 4-2 victory and a spot in the World Cup in Turkey. With the main task accomplished, several players returned to their respective professional club teams, but the U-20s kept the run going with a 2-0 victory against Cuba in the March 1 semifinal. The USA-Mexico final on March 3 drew more than 40,000 spectators at Estadio Cuauhtemoc, and despite falling down a goal early, the U.S. played host Mexico to a 1-1 score through regulation. Benji Joya scored a clutch penalty kick in the 10th minute – the only goal that Mexico allowed throughout this year’s CONCACAF U-20 Championship. However, Mexico scored two overtime goals and captured the title with a 3-1 victory.

2013 U-20 WORLD CUP FIELD: The 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup features 24 teams (full schedule): Turkey automatically qualified as the host and plays alongside six fellow UEFA qualifiers in Croatia, England, France, Greece, Portugal and Spain. Four teams qualified from CONCACAF – the USA, Cuba, El Salvador and Mexico. The remainder of the field features four CONMEBOL (South America) nations in Chile, Colombia, Paraguay and Uruguay; four Asian teams in Australia, Iraq, Korea Republic (South Korea) and Uzbekistan; African nations Egypt, Ghana, Mali and Nigeria; and Oceania’s New Zealand. The tournament field has some noteworthy changes from the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Colombia. Fourteen of the 2011 U-20 World Cup teams are returning to this year’s event, but two regular fixtures in the tournament did not advance to Turkey. Defending U-20 champion Brazil, a five-time winner of the event, and six-time U-20 World Cup champion Argentina are missing from the field. Those two countries by far are the most successful as Portugal (1989 and 1991 champion) is the only other country to win more than one title.

U.S. U-20 MNT vs. GHANA

  • The U.S. U-20 MNT has faced Ghana once previously, with Ghana winning 1-0 in the group phase of the 1997 FIFA World Youth Championship in Malaysia.
  • In that final Group C game, Peter Ofori-Quaye scored the only goal for Ghana in the 32nd minute.
  • That year, Ghana won Group C with a 2-0-1 record, followed by Ireland (1-1-1) and the U.S. (1-2-0). Despite two losses, the USA advanced to the group stage, which featured a Round of 16 and a 24-team field for the first time.

TAB RAMOS FACT FILE: Tab Ramos was named head coach of the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team in October of 2011. As a former U.S. National Team midfielder and U-20 MNT assistant and interim head coach, Ramos brings a wealth of experience to the U.S. National Team program. Here are some of his accomplishments as both a coach and player:

  • Ramos has been a member of the U.S. Soccer Federation Technical Board since 2006, and after receiving his “A” coaching license in 2007, became the U.S. U-20 MNT assistant coach two years later. Ramos served as interim head coach in late 2011, guiding the U-20 Men through training camp and two friendlies in France.
  • Ramos’s first coaching experience came with the New Jersey Soccer Academy (NJSA 04), a U.S. Soccer Development Academy club, which he founded in 2004. He is currently the Executive Director of the program and has won four New Jersey state championships and a national championship, the only U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship for a N.J. boys’ club in more than two decades.
  • Ramos first earned international playing experience with the U-20 Men when he scored two goals for the U.S. in FIFA U-20 World Cup qualifying. He played for the U.S. in the 1983 U-20 World Cup and was also a member of the U.S. team that competed in the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.
  • His first appearance with the full team came on Jan. 10, 1988, against Guatemala, and Ramos went on to play in the 1990 World Cup, where his performance earned him the title of U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year. By the time he retired from international duty in 2000, Ramos had played in three World Cups, earned 81 caps and scored eight goals, becoming the only U.S. player to score at least one World Cup qualifying goal in three different decades.
  • A 2001 graduate of North Carolina State University, Ramos studied foreign language and literature while becoming a three-time All-American in his four years playing for the school’s men’s soccer team. He joined American Soccer League side New Jersey Eagles in 1998 before moving to fellow ASL club Miami Sharks the next season.
  • In 1990, Ramos had a contract to play exclusively for the U.S. MNT as it prepared for the 1990 World Cup, but Spanish Second Division club Figueres took him on loan later that year, before eventually signing him. Ramos was sold to Real Betis in 1992 and helped the team win promotion to La Liga, but a skull fracture suffered in the 1994 World Cup kept him from making any La Liga appearances.
  • Ramos was the first player signed to Major League Soccer in 1995 ( Centennial 100 Moments), and before being allocated to the New York/New Jersey MetroStars, MLS loaned him to UANL Tigres in Mexico, where his team was 1996 Mexico Cup champion. In his seven seasons with the MetroStars, Ramos tallied eight goals and 36 assists before retiring in 2002.

GHANA UPDATE

  • Through two games, Ghana’s Yiadom Boakye is the team’s lone goal scorer. He scored the game’s final tally of a 3-1 loss to France to open the tournament on June 21.
  • Ghana has a championship (2009), two runner-up finishes (1993, 2001) and a fourth-place showing (1997) to its name and enters the 2013 tournament as one of the most successful among the field since six-time champion Argentina and five-time winner Brazil did not qualify. The 2009 championship match featured Ghana and Brazil, and after playing to a scoreless draw through 120 minutes, Ghana won 4-3 in penalty kicks. Badu scored the decisive fourth PK and was preceded by goalkeeper Daniel Agyei’s save against Brazil’s Alex Teixeira.
  • Ghana took second place in the 2013 African U-20 Championship as the four semifinalists advanced to the 2013 U-20 World Cup. Ghana’s Ebenezer Assifuah tied for second in the tournament with three goals, tallying one in each of Ghana’s three Group A games as the team went 2-1-0 in that stage. Ghana officially qualified for the World Cup with a 2-0 win against Algeria on March 22 to cap off group play and earn a semifinal spot. The squad followed group play by beating Mali 4-2 in penalties after a scoreless regulation and extra time, and then lost 5-4 to Egypt in penalties after a 1-1 draw through 120 minutes.
  • Ghana is the first and only African winner of the FIFA U-20 World Cup with its 2009 championship.
