[UNDER-17 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP] Winner of the inaugural competitions at the Women's World Cup in 1991, Women's Olympic Soccer in 1996 and Under-19 (now Under-20) Women's World Cup  in 2002, the United States is in position to make it 4-for 4. Kazbek Tambi's girls came back from a goal down in the last half hour to beat Germany, 2-1, Thursday night and move into the final of the first Under-17 Women's World Cup Sunday against North Korea in New Zealand.


Germany went ahead on Alexandra Popp's header in the 6th minute.

The Americans had their chances in the first half when the Mewis sisters, Kristie and Sam, both hit the woodwork, but they had to wait until after the hour mark to even the score.

Victoria DiMartino kept her record intact of scoring in all five games when struck from close range after sub Erika Tymrak's cross was played into the penalty area.

Courtney Verloo's winner came in the 81st minute when she scored after a flurry in the box that began when Amber Brooks hit the crossbar.

In the opening game of the doubleheader at Christchurch's North Harbour Stadium, North Korea beat England, 2-1.

Sunday's final will kick off at 4 am ET.
