[U-17 WORLD CUP RESULTS/VIDEO] Despite playing the entire second half with a man-advantage, Brazil fell, 1-0, to Ghana in the round of 16 of the U-17 World Cup in South Korea. Francis Boadi was red-carded for two rash tackles within 10 minutes late in the first half, but Issac Donkor converted a rebound for the winning goal in the 51st minute. In the quarterfinals, Ghana faces Peru, which beat Tajikistan on PKs after a 1-1 tie. In Wednesday's other round of 16 games, Bojan, who is on the brink of breaking into Barcelona's first team, scored twice in Spain's 3-0 win over North Korea. Damien Le Tallec also notched two, as France downed Tunisa, 3-1.
