Richard Sanchez, Mexico crowned champs
By Buzz Carrick
FC Dallas' home-grown goal keeper Richard Sanchez and his Mexico teammates have won the 2011 FIFA U17 World Championship. It marks the first time in FCD history a player has won a world championship while under contract with FC Dallas.
Sanchez posted a clean sheet in the final against 15 shots as Mexico defeated Uruguay 2-0 in Mexico City at Azteca Stadium before a crowd of roughly 100,000. It was the second U17 Tttle for Mexico in the last six years.
