    If the U.S. can take care of business and win their group, it appears they would have the easiest path imaginable to a semifinal appearance. That being said, having Costa Rica in their group makes things a bit trickier. On the flip side, Canada has by far the easiest group on paper, but has to be upset that they will have to face the U.S. or Costa Rica (theoretically) in the quarters.

      I agree, but I will also add that Costa Rica will be playing the US on a two day rest vs four days for the US. Normally it is a huge advantage, but I suspect that Costa Rica won’t have to push too hard against Haiti.

    Failure to make the U-20 WC will no longer be tolerated.
    Failure to advance through the qualification stage will result in castration.

    The US has by far the toughest group. Both Haiti and Costa Rica were group winners in the preliminary stage.
    Groups B and C are both incredibly easy. Panama (Group C) will be missing over half their team due to suspensions so there is only one decent team in either of these groups. The worst Group A team is roughly equivalent to the best team in either of these two groups.
