USA: Head coach John Hackworth has used 16 players through the three group matches, rotating his lineup in each match. Sporting KC’s Jaylin Lindsey –
typically a right back, who started in that position in the first group match – moved centrally and partnered with Sands for the second two group games.
That allowed Durkin to move into a midfield role, while Josh Sargent and Atlanta United’s Andrew Carleton have started in the front three every match.
Paraguay: With 10 goals from their first three group games, seven different players have scored for the South American side in wins over Mali, New Zealand and Turkey.
Another stout defensive effort from the USA will be required to keep the match close.
At the other end of the pitch, Paraguay’s defensive record should provide hope that the US U-17s can find openings in front of goal. Their five goals conceded, including two to Mali and New Zealand, bodes well for the USA.
