If Wednesday night's friendly against Denmark left one thing clear, it's that El Tri manager Jose Manuel de la Torre is no gambler.

When it comes to El Tri's youth, that might begin to become a problem.

Among those seeing no playing time in the 1-1 draw against Denmark were young superstars Diego Reyes and Jorge Enriquez. That will make it tough for either to figure into the plans next week against Jamaica -- a game that would have been ideal to integrate some young players in the inferno that is CONCACAF World Cup qualifying.

Elsewhere on the field, the young players performed well when given the chance. Here's a report card on how some of El Tri's youth looks coming out of Wednesday night's match.
