Saturday's round of 16 game game promises another easy win for the USA. It faces St. Lucia, which earned a round of 16 spot thanks to the peculiar Concacaf format in which the top four teams from a qualifying tournament among the region's 10 lowest ranked teams get a pass to the U-20 World Cup qualifying round of 16.

Against Honduras, which gifted the USA three own goals, Trinity Rodman scored four against Honduras, matching Mia Fishel's feat in the opening 9-0 win over Cuba.

The USA had already clinched passage to the round of 16 on Monday with its 4-0 win over the Dominican Republic. The winner and runner-up at this Concacaf U-20 Championship qualify for the World Cup.

In the quarterfinals, the USA is likely to face Canada, seeded third behind Mexico and No. 1 USA. The Canadians managed only second place in Group E, losing 3-0 to Group E winner Jamaica and tying with Guatemala, 0-0. Jamaica, which faces Bermuda in the round of 16, is also in the USA's side of the bracket.
