02:52 PM ET 03.02 | The United States U-20 team has reached the CONCACAF final after a 2-0 win over Cuba. Team USA will face Mexico in Sunday's final. It was a pair of early goals that got things rolling for the Yankees and they were able to hang on tight and earn the win. "It's always good to start off well at the beginning," Benji Joya said. "Getting those two goals put us in a good situation. We just concentrated on not making mistakes and keep playing the way we did when we started, which got us the two goals. I guess the team did a pretty good job of it. Having pressure on us is going to make us better players. Obviously, right here, everybody is against us. We're doing a good job of dealing with it. When we're on the field, we don't hear any of it. We're just concentrating on the game and we're focused." Team USA recently clinched a berth to the U-20 World Cup in Turkey, so they could have had a major letdown in this game, however, they were able to remain focused.
