United States Men’s U-20 National Team head coach Mikey Varas has called 19 players into the final tune-up before the fast-approaching World Cup in Indonesia, giving a clearer picture of how his final roster to be named in under two months will look.
Luca de la Torre and Celta Vigo’s emphatic win over Real Valladolid was only tempered by a late injury for the American, while Yunus Musah and Valencia finally earned their first league win in more than three months.
Luca de la Torre’s efficient outing for Celta Vigo went to waste as they lost late to Atletico, while Yunus Musah and Valencia continued their slide to the bottom with another needless loss.
Luca de la Torre was once again a strong performer for Celta in their road upset over Betis, while Yunus Musah and Valencia inched closer to the relegation spots after a narrow loss at Girona.
Yunus Musah and Valencia demolished their second-division foes Gijon to land their spot in the final eight, while Luca Koleosho had his first appearance for Espanyol in their Copa loss at Athletic Bilbao.
Luca de la Torre was effective over a half of action in Celta’s come-from-behind draw against Villarreal, while Samuel Shashoua saw his tenacious performance for Tenerife go unrewarded in a scoreless draw.
Yunus Musah put in a strong midfield performance for Valencia in an otherwise toothless loss by the team, while Samuel Shashoua continued his come-back tour with Tenerife with his first goal of the season.
Luca de la Torre’s positive performance in his first start for Celta Vigo was in vain as they were eliminated from the Copa del Rey by Espanyol, while Yunus Musah was a sub for Valencia as they cruised past La Nucía.
Yunus Musah and Valencia couldn’t hang onto an early lead against Villarreal, while Luca de la Torre narrowly missed being the hero for Celta Vigo in their draw against Sevilla.
The pairings for the final 32 of the Copa del Rey were set on Friday, giving Yunus Musah and Valencia a straightforward opener, while Luca de la Torre and Celta Vigo have a tough task against fellow La Liga side Espanyol.
