[12 NATIONS TOURNAMENT] Germans scored three goals in the first half to beat the USA, 3-0, Saturday in their under-20 women's international at the 12-Nations Tournament in La Manga, Spain. Sloppy play by the USA led to the first two goals, both scored by Annabel Jaeger, one of only three players on the two teams who played when the USA beat Germany, 1-0, last year in the Under-20 World Cup final.

The third goal came in the final minute of the half after U.S. defender Mandy Freeman was called for a foul in the box and sent off for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity. Lina Magull converted the penalty for the final margin.

Besides Jaeger, Notre Dame's Cari Roccaro started for the USA and Melanie Leupolz also started for Germany in the 2012 U-20 final at the Tokyo National Stadium. The U.S. victory reversed a 3-0 loss to Germany that the USA suffered in the final match of group play.

Saturday's match was the first U.S. goalie Jane Campbell has lost in her international career. Campbell didn't lose a game as a U-17.

The USA opened play Thursday with a 1-1 draw against Norway as forward Amber Munerlyn scored the USA’s lone goal in the 69th minute. Norway drew level on a goal in the 89th minute from Andrea Thun.

The USA will face Sweden Monday to finish the friendly tournament.
