Spain: Suso won't be the headliner for Spain's U20s--that's reserved for talented Barcelona youngster Gerard Deulofeu--but he'll have an important part to play through the midfield and forward areas. Their matchup with the US will kick off the country's participation in a third major international competition this month, and they'll likely be the favorites in this one as well. Astounding to think that they could win three different tournaments at the three highest levels of international football within the span of a little over a month, but they're staring down some unprecedented success.

Highlights below from the U20s' warmup friendly against Paraguay, in which Suso served as captain in a match that saw Spain win 3-0 in Benidorm.
