[COPA MEXICO DE NACIONES] The U.S. under-17 national team, aiming to win its fourth straight international tournament, won its second game in two days at the Copa Mexico de Naciones in Mexico City with a 2-0 victory over Mexico 2 to clinch a berth in Wednesday's quarterfinals.

Mexico 2, a third-division all-star team, was a late replacement for Argentina, which pulled out of the tournament following the death of Argentine federation president Julio Grondona.

Christian Pulisic, who had a hat trick in the 6-0 win over China to open the tournament on Saturday, put the USA ahead 1-0 in the first minute. The second goal was scored by Orrin McKinze Gaines in the 24th minute. Gaines joined the team from the Open Nordic Tournament in Denmark, where the U-17 "B" team finished sixth out of eight teams.

The USA is one of four teams along with Brazil, Ecuador and Portugal to open with two wins at the Copa Mexico de Naciones, a 16-team tournament that is in its third year. Richie Williams' Americans close out group play against Paraguay on Monday.
