USA advances with 2-0 win over Belgium

The U.S. Under-17 Menís National Team advanced to the Round of 16 of the FIFA Under-17 World Cup with a 2-0 win over Belgium in their third and final Group E match at the Cheonan Sports Complex in Cheonan, South Korea. Second-half substitute Kirk Urso opened the scoring in the 63rd minute and Mykell Bates added an insurance goal seven minutes later.

Combined with Tunisiaís victory over Tajikistan in the nightís other Group E matchup, the U.S. leapfrogged from fourth to second place in the group and will play Germany, who finished first in Group F with their 4-0 win over Trinidad & Tobago this evening in Ulsan. The U.S. will stay in Cheonan to face Germany on Thursday, Aug. 30 at 8 p.m. local time (7 a.m. ET) and fans can follow the match live on ESPNU and ussoccer.com's MatchTracker.

"Donovan was excellent. We knew he was a good player, but he really didn't do anything wrong in the whole game and made it difficult for us."
