FC Dallas at U17 Worlds
By Buzz Carrick
Unfortunately for US fans the Nats run at the U17 World Championship has come to an end. FCD Academy player Kellyn Acosta again played 90 minutes but the US was routed 4-0 by Germany. Fellow North Texans Matt Dunn and Alfred Koroma also started and played 90.
FCD's home grown signing Richard Sanchez continues to be the man in the nets for Mexico as our Southern Neighbors took out Panama 2-0. Sanchez wasn't tested to severally as Meixco dominated possession and the shots. Mexico now moves on to play France on the 4th of July, and if they continue to progress will face the winner of Germany/England on the 7th. The FIFA U17 Championship Final will take place on the 10th in Mexico City.
