The U.S. Under-20's start Toulon Tournament action against hosts/summer World Cup group foe France in about five hours. The game will be televised live on beIN Sport. What am I looking for in this tourney? Same as Tab Ramos: Who can step it up when the heat arrives?
And if you're wondering who isn't along that should be next month in Turkey, I'm thinking primarily about Luis Gil, Jose Villarreal, DeAndre Yedlin and (presumably?) John Anthony Brooks. I'm also into an acceptance phase that the U20 World Cup comes too soon for Will Packwood and Marc Pelosi.
UPDATE: Had an airy moment in the brain... of course, Brooks won't be there.
