By RICHARD TALLISAssociated PressWith a month to go before the start of the World Football Association Cup, the U.S. men’s national team and their fans have an idea of what they need to do in order to qualify for the tournament.
Here are 10 things to know before deciding what to do:1.
How to prepare:This year, the USA qualified for the group stage with a 0-0 draw with Argentina.
In a game that could be described as a tie-breaker, it is a great chance for the USA to earn a spot in the knockout rounds, where they would face Brazil in the quarterfinals.
The Americans need to play well against the Argentinians to earn their place in the group stages.
The USA has a good chance to earn the group if they perform against the best teams in the world.
The most important thing for the Americans is to make the best of their time.2.
Who to pick:The United States have a lot of options at the back.
The team has three key positions to fill.
Defender Matt Besler is one of the best in the game and a proven leader.
He is a veteran with a wealth of experience.
The midfield is full of quality, with the likes of Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey all making an impact in the past.
And there are plenty of attacking players on the roster, including Clint Dempsey, Omar Gonzalez, Chris Wondolowski and Jermaine Jones.
The USA has four strikers, which should make things easy.
If Clint Dempsey can find the back of the net, he can make a world of difference in the final third.
If Jermain Defoe has an off day, then maybe the U-23s have to use the other three strikers.
Defoe scored the game winner against Mexico, which is a huge compliment to the U23s.3.
How they are playing:The U.N. Cup is the final hurdle in qualifying for the knockout stages.
It is the biggest tournament in the FIFA world.
So far, the teams are playing very well.
The U.K. have the best chances to reach the quarterfinal stage.
The U-20s beat Brazil in a friendly on Sunday, while the U17s defeated Costa Rica on Wednesday.
The teams also drew with Chile and Peru.
The top two teams from the group will qualify for a knockout stage with the winner going on to the World Club Championships.4.
Who they are: The U-17s have won the U18 World Cup, while they are looking for their first ever medal.
The two teams played in the first round of the tournament, which ended in a 2-1 loss to Uruguay.
This year, they are hoping to reach that feat again.5.
How the team plays:The Americans have a big advantage on the offensive side of the ball.
The best team in the country is the U15s.
This is a team that has scored a lot in the recent past.
The team is led by captain Darrius Barnes, who has made a name for himself as one of MLS’ best center backs.
They also have a dynamic attacking attack.
The players like to play in the box, which can open up space for the ball to move around.
The Americans will need to stay compact and play the ball well.
The young team will need a lot from the keeper.
Clint Dempsey is still in the league, so the team will have to rely on him to keep his spot in goal.
The defending will be a major factor, with Clint Dempsey making an important difference in this group.
