GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – After months of preparation, the United States U-20 national team arrives in Central America with a spot in the World Cup on the line.
The Americans need to advance from the three-team Group B, a relatively simple task on paper, and then win a quarterfinal match in which anything could happen in order to reach their eighth straight age group World Cup. Thomas Rongen's squad will be favored in every game except possibly the final but can't afford to lose concentration.
Thomas Rongen has enlisted plenty of talent for the CONCACAF U-20 Championship in Guatemala, but he needs a select few to excel if the favored Americans expect to advance to the World Cup. MLSsoccer.com takes a look at five players who will fill that role.

D.C. United's Reserves continued the 2011 MLS Reserve League season with 4-1 win over against the New England Revolution on Saturday, March 26 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

United is now 2-0-0 in MLS Reserve League action.
Two early goals proved to be too big of an obstacle for D.C. United to overcome in a 2-1 loss to the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.
And while those two goals came in contentious circumstances, rather than throw blame elsewhere, the DC locker room was more upset with their performance during that crucial opening stretch.
