US beat Senegal 1-0 at U20 World Cup

INCHEON, South Korea - Josh Sargent scored his third goal of the tournament in the 34th minute, and the United States beat Senegal 1-0 yesterday at Incheon, South Korea, to move into good position to reach the knockout stage of the Under-20 World Cup.

Sargent scored after Aaron Herrera passed to Tyler Adams along a flank, and Adams played a back-heel pass to Luca de la Torre, who was bursting into the penalty area.

De La Torre bent the ball back to Sargent. The 17-year-old from O'Fallon, Missouri, who is the youngest player on the American roster, took a touch with his left foot about 16 yards out, spun and beat goalkeeper Mouhamed Mbaye with a left-footed shot.

The U.S., which opened with a 3-3 against Ecuador last weekend, lead Group F with four points, followed by Senegal and Saudi Arabia with three apiece, and Ecuador with one.
