[USA-GERMANY]Defending champion Germany showed that it is still the team to beat at the Under-20 Women's World Cup with a 3-0 win over the United States on Thursday in Miyagi.

Lena Lotzen scored the first two goals and Melanie Leupolz added a third as Germany won Group D with three straight shutouts.

The USA went into the game with an eight-goal cushion on goal difference and finished ahead of China, a 1-0 winner over Ghana in Thursday's other game, to claim second place and a date with North Korea on Friday in Saitama.

The loss was just the third the USA has suffered at the U-20 Women's World Cup.

The Americans fell to Germany, 3-1, in the 2004 semifinals and lost to China, 2-0, in their final group game in the 2008 tournament, which they went on to win. (The USA exited the 2006 and 2010 tournaments with shootout losses.)

They had beaten Germany, 1-0, earlier in the year at the La Manga Tournament in Spain. Paris St. Germain signing Lindsey Horan, who had the game's lone goal for the USA, is injured and did not travel to Japan.

North Korea was perfect in Group C, winning its three games by a margin of 15-4. Kim Un Hwa scored her tournament-high seventh goal of the tournament in the 2-1 win over Canada.
