The team is currently using mostly their domestic contingent. If they advance to the World Cup, it will be interesting which of the European-based young players they bring. Maybe they don't want to mess up the chemistry now.
Tab Ramos succeeded Claudia Reyna. Caleb Porter, the Timbers coach, was the U23 coach for the Olympic team in 2012. Tab Ramos coached the U23 in 2014. Andreas Herzog coached the U23 in 2016 Olympic qualifying.
A draw against El Salvador will be enough to see our U20s to the final, where they likely will face Honduras or Costa Rica.
This could be a big shot in the arm for the U20 program. They made it to the quarterfinals of the 2015 U20 World Cup, where they lost on penalties to eventual champions Serbia. Of course, that team had Rubio Rubin, Paul Arriola, Emerson Hyndman, and Matt Miazga, all of whom have aged out. One wonders if Tab Ramos might call in Zelalem or Carter-Vickers for the World Cup. Though he's been getting playing time in the Dutch second division, Zelalem could use an audition on a bigger stage, since he doesn't seem to be in Arsenal's plans.
