Senegal vs USA U-19 Match Prediction
Senegal has pulled off a historic feat by reaching the quarterfinals for the first time ever in history. However, their opponent turned out to be the defending champions USA which is undoubtedly the strongest side in the tournament. The USA have won 4 out of the last 6 World Championships and are on an unbeaten streak in this tournament as well.
Due to this, it is easy to predict that the USA will win the match. All that needs to be seen is how well Senegal manages to defend itself and give a tough fight to the USA side.
