Craft saw plenty of minutes in this tournament, mostly off the bench for Tab Ramos’ side. He came on in the 79th minute of the Final and converted his PK in the second round of the shootout, which the U.S. took 5-3 after a scoreless 90 minutes. In total, Craft saw 136 minutes in the tournament.

The U-20s earned a spot in the FIFA U-20 World Cup by finishing in the top four in the CONCACAF Championship. They’ll learn of their group during the tournament draw on March 15. The World Cup itself runs from May 20-June 11 in South Korea.

Craft will look to be apart of that squad. The U-20s will likely rejoin for a pre-World Cup camp a few weeks before the tournament itself.
