The US lads have started well in Group A.
Opener: 0-3 victory over hosts India.

Today: 1-0 victory over Ghana.

Next: Colombia
With 16 of 24 teams advancing from the 6 groups, USA are already through to the knock-out rounds.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Paraguay lads outdo the eliminated adult team, stomping Turkey. Mali dump NZ out of the tournament.
USA - Colombia in a few minutes.
CR, HON & MEX each stand 3rd in their group, with a possibility that one of them will not advance.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Lousy start.
5 defenders inside the 6, allow an opponent to run in & blast the ball past the keeper.

Nice equalizer.

Columbia go up 2-1 at 67, from a free kick.
One US defender seemed to win a tackle, but a trailer came across the oppents leg, which was called.
COL dominating play at this point.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

a tying goal would be pretty helpful with the group so tight.

Now 3-1 Colombia & 4-0 Ghana over India, which would push USA out of first, into 3rd.
