MOST COMMENTED

The USA can wrap a berth in the Under-17 World Cup for a record 12th straight time if it ties or beats host Jamaica Friday at CONCACAF's Group B qualifying tournament or Canada and Trinidad & Tobago tie in the first game.

The USA, which meets group leader Costa Rica on Sunday, has won its first two games. It is in second place with six points, one behind Costa Rica, which has played one more game. Canada is third with four points. Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago have lost both their games.

The USA also takes an 18-game unbeaten streak in CONCACAF qualifying into the weekend action. It has never lost since CONCACAF split U-17 qualifying into multiple groups and it has never lost since U.S. Soccer opened its residency program in 1999. The last U-17 loss in qualifying was a 3-1 loss to Mexico in August 1996.
