TAGS:  u-17 world cup


[PREVIEW] The USA hopes to bounce back from its disappointing 4-3 loss to Tajikistan in its U-17 World Cup opener when it faces Tunisia on Thursday. The game airs live at 4 am ET on ESPN, ESPNU and Galavision, and online at ESPNU rebroadcasts the game at noon ET on Thursday. Galavision is rebroadcasting the game at 7 pm ET/PT on Thursday. The USA is aiming to reach the second round for the sixth time in its record 12th appearance. Tunisia beat Belgium, 4-2, in its opener.

Tunisia got two goals from Youssef Msaki in its win over Belgium and had a 3-2 lead before Oussama Boughanmi, scorer of its first goal, was ejected in the 52nd minute.

Tunisia, like all of the USA's Group E opponents, is appearing in its first U-17 World Cup.
