The group stage of the 2015 U-20 World Cup is complete, and if you're a United States fan, you're in luck, as the Americans have advanced to the knockout stage, with a round of 16 game against Colombia late tonight. It won't be an easy game, especially against the talented Colombians, but like the Americans, their upcoming opponents lost a game in the group stage, so they at least have a shot to move on.

Former Chivas USA Homegrown player Marky Delgado has started each game for the U.S. so far, so he seems a likely bet to get time in tonight's game. The versatile player will likely be called on to help break up Colombian attacks in the midfield before they really progress, which won't be easy. Still, the U.S. have had their positive moments, so hopefully they will be up for the test.

The winner of this game will face the winner of the Serbia-Hungary game in the quarterfinals this weekend.

In other news, those interested in the exploits of Mexico at the U-20 World Cup will have to wait at least two years to see them in action again at the tournament, as they crashed out following a last-place finish in Group D. They beat Uruguay, but lost to Mali and Serbia, so they got an early plane home from New Zealand.
