USA splits at U-16 Mondial Minimes under new coach Cabrera

In the first international tournament under new U.S. under-17 national team coach Wilmer Cabrera, the USA finished with two wins and two losses and captured seventh place at the 36th annual Mondial Minimes hosted by tiny French club FC Montaigu.

The Americans lost to Germany, 2-1, and Japan, 3-1, before rebounding to beat eventual champion England, 1-0, in group play. The Americans defeated China, 3-1, in the seventh-place game.

Carlos Martinez led the Americans with three goals, including the winner against England. Luis Gil, who scored against China, and Alex Shinsky, who had an assist in the win over China, were the youngest members of the team at age 14.

The Americans, who had created a sensation when they beat Brazil, 2-0, at last fall's Nike Friendlies, were playing without phenom Charles Renken, who is sidelined with a knee injury. Also out with a knee injury is standout defender Jared Watts. Donovan Henry was injured in the first game at the Montaigu tournament.

England beat France on penalty kicks in the final. Germany, Ivory Coast, Mexico and Japan also finished ahead of the Americans.

The trip was the ninth the USA has made to the Mondial Minimes. It won the tournament in 1992.
