MOST COMMENTED

There was more bad news for host Canada at the Under-20 World Cup.

Canada's U-20s dropped their second straight match at the Under-20 World Cup, falling to Austria, 1-0, on a header by Rubin Okotie in the 47th minute.

The loss left Canada needing to beat Congo in its final group game and then get some luck to finish as one of the four best third-place teams.

The Canada-Austria game drew 31,000 fans in Edmonton as the U-20 event continued to generate extraordinary interest in Canada.

Six of the first nine dates were sellouts, including the Poland-Brazil and USA-South Korea doubleheader in Montreal that drew 55,800 fans. The U-20 World Cup in Canada is on track to break the record turnout of 1,155,160 in Mexico in 1983 -- and double the turnout two years ago in the Netherlands.

Elsewhere, Chile and Mexico clinched berths in the round of 16 at the Under-20 World Cup after victories on Thursday.

Barcelona's Giovanni dos Santos converted a penalty to help Mexico on its way to a 2-1 win over Portugal.

Chile beat Congo, 3-0, with star Alexis Sanchez getting his first goal of the tournament.

Gambia beat New Zealand, 1-0, thanks to a diving header by Ousmane Jallow in the 22nd minute.

UNDER-20 WORLD CUP RESULTS:
Group A
Canada 0 Austria 1
(Okotie 47).
Chile 3 (Sanchez 49, Median 79, Vidal 82) Congo 0.
Group C
Gambia 1
(Jallow 22) New Zealand 0.
Mexico 2 (Dos Santos pen. 48, Barrera 66) Portugal 1 (Antunes 88).
