[AGS CUP] The USA came in second place behind Mexico at the AGS Cup for under-17 national teams in Spain when the teams played to a 1-1 tie on Saturday. The U.S. U-17s finished with wins over UAE, Morocco and Canada, a loss to Azerbaijan and the tie with Mexico.

In 2011, the USA also finished second at the AGS Cup, a round-robin tournament.
