USA vs Senegal U17 World Cup Preview
An event that takes place every two years, the 2019 U-17 World Cup will feature players who were born on or after January 1, 2002. It features 24 nations who have been divided into six groups, each housing four teams. The United States and Senegal are both in Group D, and they will face off Sunday afternoon. The winners of each group move on to the next round, so each match will be crucial.
The United States will be led by forward/midfielder Gianluca Busio, who has the most professional experience ever for a US player in a U-17 World Cup. Busio has played 29 games with MLS’s Sporting Kansas City, and he will bring invaluable leadership and experience to this United States team. Head coach Raphael Wicky has assembled a solid group of young professionals for this squad.
Busio will be joined by forward Griffin Yow, who also plays professionally with D.C. United, and Ricardo Pepi, who also plays professionally with FC Dallas. Together with Busio, the three teamed up for a combined 12 goals at the Concacaf U-17 Championship. They will be a pivotal core of players to watch on this U.S. team, and in this match. Gio Reyna, son of United States soccer legend Claudio Reyna, will also be a scoring threat for the Unites States team.
Senegal have never played in a U-17 World Cup before. They were given a spot in the tournament after Guinea was disqualified for using age-ineligible players, but that doesn’t mean they will be a complete pushover team in this tournament. They took third in Group B at the 2019 Africa U-17 Cup of Nations, although that about highlights their tournament resumé.
Senegal will be led by midfielder Ibrahim Sy, who is on the books at Reims in Ligue 1. He will be joined by Samba Diallo and Aliou Balde, two other notable scoring threats for Senegal. They’re a long shot to be sure, but upsets happen every day.
The United States team has a 17-8-5 international record since December of 2017. They also had a strong showing this May at the Concacaf U-17 Championship, losing to a very good Mexico team in the finals. They made it to the quarterfinals in the 2017 U-17 World Cup before being eliminated by England, who went on to win the Cup that year.
