[UNDER-20 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP]U.S. players remained confident despite a 2-0 loss to Germany in their opening game at the Under-20 Women's World Cup. They pointed to the ton of chances they created for themselves in the end-to-end match in Edmonton. Next up: Brazil in Friday at Commonwealth Stadium.

Tuesday Results:
GROUP A
North Korea 2 Finland 1
Canada 0 Ghana 1
GROUP B
Germany 2 USA 0 (Report)
China 1 Brazil 1
Wednesday Results:
GROUP C
England 1 South Korea 1
Mexico 1 Nigeria 1
GROUP D
France 5 Costa Rica 1
New Zealand 2 Paraguay 0

“I actually think our team feels more confident because we created a lot of chances," said captain Cari Roccaro, the only American who played in the final two years ago when the USA beat Germany, 1-0. "We had 16 shots on goal and 21 shots overall and I think we were in their defensive half quite a bit. It was a really good game. It’s not like we were dominated. They had some run of the play and then we had some. We learned a lot from this and got our nerves and I think we’re ready for Brazil.”

Goalie Katelyn Rowland said the opener was a great game.

"Hats off to Germany," she said. "They came out strong. We did a lot of good things and our heads are still high. We’ve got two more games left in the group and we’re looking forward to Brazil.”

Lindsey Horan was a constant menace for the USA up front but was disappointed she could not score.

“Our whole team created a lot of opportunities and obviously I’m a little disappointed with myself because I couldn’t finish those, but overall I’m happy how we played," she said. "Creating that many opportunities against a great team like Germany is a really good step for us.”
