U.S. SOCCER: U-20s rebound from rout to tie Colombia

The U.S. U-20s, who lost 6-3 to Colombia on Monday, managed a scoreless stalemate in WednesdayÆs rematch. The 0-0 tie in Ft. Lauderdale comes one month before the kickoff of the World Youth Championship, for which both the USA and Colombia have qualified.

''I thought the team showed a lot of heart and rebounded well after a tough match on Monday,'' U.S. coach Thomas Rongen.

Rongen made three changes from the team that lost on Monday and Colombia made six. Bobby ConveyÆs return marked the USAÆs main adjustment.
