U.S. U-20s win second game in two days

[DALLAS CUP] The U.S. under-20 national team made it two wins in two days in the Gordon Jago Super group at the Dallas Cup with a 3-0 victory over German club Eintracht Frankfurt's U-19 team on goals by Benji Lopez, Zach Pfeffer and Romain Gall.

Pfeffer, who is back with the Philadelphia Union after a season at German club Hoffenheim, set up Lopez of Real Salt Lake right before halftime and Pfeffer made it 2-0 just after the break.
Tijuana's Paul Arriola set up Gall, who is at French club Lorient, for the late insurance goal.

The USA closes out group play on Wednesday against Tigres of Mexico. It will clinch first place in the group and a berth in Friday's semifinals with a win or tie. It might still advance with a loss.

USA starting XI -- Castano; Moore, Palmer Brown, Amick, Haberkorn; Fernandes, Gooch; Arriola, Lopez, Moreno.

The LA Galaxy academy team fell to Fluminense of Brazil, 2-0, on Monday in other Super Group action.
