Shane O'Neil celebrates the U-20s win
Tuesday was a great day for American soccer that will have fans happy even despite recent struggles of the national team.
First, the US U-20 team qualified for the 2013 World Cup in Turkey with a convincing 4-2 win over Canada. In the victory, the Americans played attractive, skillful soccer that showed progress at the youth level. Following recent failures of the 2011 U-20 team and the 2012 U-23 team, this a good performance from this team was needed and the players delivered.
