Archimides Ordoñez, player to watch!
The Guatemalan striker is going through a great moment with his team as he is one of the players with the greatest consistency within the team, this is the leader of the U-20 forward and the figure to follow in each of the matches. Ordóñez belongs to Cincinnati of the MLS, during the 2022 season he has played 6 games with the Cincinnati first team and 5 more with the second team where he has achieved a total of 2 goals and 1 assist. Ordóñez is one of the promises of Guatemalan soccer and is beginning to be considered to participate in the MLS. His mission now is to get his team into the U-20 World Cup and fight for a ticket to the Paris Olympics.
How does Guatemala arrive?
The Guatemalan national team arrives at the U-20 World Cup with the mission that its players continue to develop and show that the Bicolor team is one of the rivals to beat in the area. The youth representative must get one of the tickets to the U-20 World Cup in Indonesia and fight for a place in the Olympic Games. Some names to follow from this team are Arquímides Ordóñez, Arian Recinos and Anderson Villagrán, all these youngsters have developed in the first division of Guatemala or in the MLS. This will be his opportunity to show his high level to try to find a place in the first division and earn calls to the senior team of El Salvador.
