The United States under-23 national team took care of business Thursday night in the opening game of their 2015 CONCACAF Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship campaign — a closer-than-the-scoreboard-says 3-1 victory over Canada.
Up next is a Saturday evening tilt with Cuba (kickoff time, television and live-streaming info below). A victory would see the Americans advance to the semifinals of the tournament, wherein one more victory would put them into the final and secure an automatic place at next summer’s Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.
