BRIAN SCIARETTA - Thursday, December 16, 2010
Yesterday CONCACAF held the drawing for the region's U-17 World Cup qualifying tournament that will be held from February 12-27 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

The US U-17 national team was drawn into Group B along with Cuba and Panama.

Under the tournament's format, there are 12 teams participating and there are four groups of three teams. The top two teams in each group will advance to the quarterfinals and the winners of each of the four quarterfinal games will qualify for this summer's U-17 World Cup in Mexico.

If the US advances out of Group B, they will face one of the top two teams from Group A in the decisive quarterfinal game. Group A consists of Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Haiti.

The US U-17 national team is coached by former Colombia international Wilmer Cabrera who coached the team at the 2009 U-17 World Cup where it finished second in its group before bowing out with a 2-1 loss to Italy in the Round of 16.
