[UNDER-20 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP] Sydney Leroux scored in the 21st minute to give the USA a 1-0 win over South Korea and earn it first place in Group D to set up a date with Nigeria in Augsburg on Sunday.

Leroux matched her 2008 total when her five goals earned her the Golden Shoe as the tournament's leading scorer.

South Korea had already qualified for the quarterfinals with two wins and did not start star Ji So-Yun, who has already scored five goals of her own.
