For his part, The United States beat Fiji 3-0 in the San Juan del Bicentenario stadium and is practically qualified for the round of 16 of the U-20 World Cup, after starting the second date of the B Group.

The goals of Diego Luna, Cade Cowell and Caleb Wiley, all in the complement gave him the victory of the North American setthat has perfect score in your area.

The United States took possession of the balla characteristic also observed in his success against Ecuador, and he monopolized this facet of the game, which allowed him to count on dangerous situations and closed the initial stage with 13 goal attempts (three direct on goal).

Fiji suffered too much with a physically weak midfield and above all disordered from any tactical aspect (He conceded four goals in his debut with Slovakia). In fact, he had only one approach that was not very dangerous and the positive thing at halftime was that he had almost miraculously held the zero in his goal.

The dynamics remained in the complement, although Cowell failed when he found himself facing goal after an excellent rating from Daniel Edelman.

The United States appealed to quick associations and first to break an ultra-defensive scheme by Fijiwho had six defenders, three midfielders and a striker at times, and thus found the goal at Luna’s feet.

Those led by Mikey Varas controlled the following actions, but they only had a bigger prize in the end with an exquisite shot from Cowell to liquidate the actions. Then came the extra prize: a free kick on the stick and Wiley pushed it alone.
