LA Galaxy Homegrown forward Jose Villarreal catapulted the U.S. U-20's into a berth in the 2013 U-20 World Cup on Tuesday with a pair of goals in the U.S.' 4-2 victory over Canada in the CONCACAF U-20 Championship quarterfinals on Tuesday.

As reported by scribes Tom Marshall and Kyle McCarthy, who were both at the match in Puebla, Villarreal will not return to Southern California like several of his U.S. teammates, but will remain with the U-20's for the duration of the tournament. The U.S. face Cuba -- who defeated Costa Rica 2-1 -- on Friday in the semifinal round.
