U-17’s Eliminated by Germany
Germany is a killer for the United States in knockout roudns of World Cups. Sure, this does not compare at all to 2002, but its a decent way to start a post.
The USA lost 2-1, the 1 being another Mykell Bates goal, to the Germans this morning. All in all you could say it is what the young yanks deserved after their awful start to the much anticipated tournament.
I would say Maykell Bates was the best player for the United States throughout the tournament, although that is a somewhat dubious award when you only win one match. It will be interesting to see if any of these youths garner any international club attention after this tournament, my guess is it won’t be much with that showing.
Expect the USA roster for the Brasil friendly to be announced after this weekend. Who do you want to see there?
