[U.S. UNDER-17 BOYS] In a dress rehearsal for the Concacaf U-17 Championship that begins Feb. 14, the USA beat and tied Jamaica in a pair of under-17 friendlies played in Montego Bay, site of the regional finals.

After the USA and Jamaica tied, 0-0, the Americans won the rematch, 2-1, on goals by Esteban Rodriguez and Alfred Koroma.

Wilmer Cabrera's squad will return to Bradenton, Fla., on Thursday to continue daily training and travel back to Jamaica a week later.

It will face Cuba on Feb. 14 and Panama on Feb. 18 at Trelawny Stadium. The top two teams in the group will advance to the quarterfinals, and the four quarterfinal winners will earn a place at the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Mexico.

    When will CONCACAF learn their lesson? They should do what CONMEBOL is doing. One off-day in the quarterfinals and a big team could be out of the WC.

    Cuantos jugadores latinos estan militados en este equipo que encabeza Wilmer Cabrera?

    Ric..I have a limited knowledge in Spanish but I could see 6 players with a hispanic name. Am I right? 6 out of 22 is 27%. this is a good ratio. Don't expect all the players to be Latinos. When I watched the U-17 in the WC, they played with Latin style, even the non-hispanic players.
