USA Under-17s beat Guadeloupe 8-0 and the 2019 Concacaf Ch'ship QFs are set

The US Under-17 national team brushed aside Guadeloupe in the Concacaf Championship Round of 16, storming into the quarterfinals for a chance to clinch a berth in the 2019 Under-17 FIFA World Cup.

The US U-17s next face Panama in the quarterfinals on Sunday (2 pm ET on Concacaf Facebook and Univision Deportes) for one of four berths at stake. Canada take on Costa Rica, Mexico meet El Salvador and Haiti battle Honduras for the other three spots.

Goals by MLS academy products Alfonso Ocampo-Chavez (Seattle Sounders), Griffin Yow (D.C. United) and Gianluca Busio (Sporting Kansas City) helped the Americans build a 6-0 first-half lead. They added two more in the second half to round out the scoreline of a match that saw the USA hold nearly 80 percent of possession and outshoot Guadeloupe 30-5.
