The 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship is almost here. Mexico will open up play against Cuba on January 20.
The 2-week-long tournament will take place in Jamaica and will determine the four teams that will represent CONCACAF in the upcoming U-20 World Cup.
The format is a little different; 12 teams are divided into two groups, and the team that tops each one of the groups qualifies to the the 2015 U-20 World Cup in New Zealand. On the other hand, runners-up and third placed teams of each group participate in a final playoff match to determine the other two.
Mexico was the champion of the last CONCACAF U-20 Championship, and participated in the 2013 U-20 World Cup. On that occasion, they lost to Spain in the Round of 16.
