USA settles for third despite 38-0 goal margin

[CONCACAF UNDER-17 WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP] The USA defeated host Costa Rica, 6-0, to finish the 2010 CONCACAF U-17 Women’s Championship with a goal difference of 38-0, but that earned the Americans no better than third place.

The USA, which allowed only seven shots on goal in five games, failed to qualify for the 2010 U-17 Women’s World Cup after falling in penalty kicks to Canada in the semifinals.

“What the tournament demonstrated is that there is a really bright future for the women’s game in the U.S.," said U.S. coach Kazbek Tambi. "It’s tough to swallow that this team won’t be going to the World Cup. We’ve got some young players here who are definitely ahead of the game as compared to their predecessors a few years ago who were able to go to the World Cup and win a silver medal. But at the same time, it’s going to be a great lesson learned for everybody and there are at least a few players here w ith the potential to help our senior team one day.”

Despite their elimination from the U-17 World Cup, the Americans will remain active. Next up: games against Brazil's U-17s April 3 and 5 at the Dallas Cup.
