US Eliminated from U-17s

The summer of disappointment got worse for US Soccer today with a 2-1 Round of 16 loss to Germany today. The US controlled much of the play, but as is typical with American youth teams in major competitions, the finishing was poor and all the high energy play led to being susceptible at the back. It is a story we have have seen before most recently at the 2003 and 2005 U-20 World Cups where the US controlled play against opponents superior in technical skill but could not finish opportunities.
