U.S. SOCCER: U-17s beat England, reach fifth-place game
April 28th, 2000 12AM



The U.S. under-17 boys team beat England on penalty kicks, 5-3, and will now play the winner of the Netherlands-Scotland match in the fifth-place game of the Ballymena Tournament in Northern Ireland. The United States had tied England, 2-2, on two goals from Ed Johnson. The USA had finished second in their group. The week-long tournament featured 12 teams from around the world, with each team being placed in one of three groups. In group action, the USA defeated Northern Ireland, 1-0, and the Netherlands, 3-0, but lost to Austria, 3-0. The top three teams from each group advance to the semifinals and the best overall second-place finisher advances as well. The USA and Northern Ireland both finished with the same amount of points, but the tournament host will go through on a better goal differential as the fourth team in the semifinals, joining Austria, Switzerland and Israel.
