U.S. U-20 women eliminated on penalties by China

MOSCOW -- The United States lost to China 5-4 on penalty kicks following a 0-0 tie Thursday in the semifinals of the FIFA Under-20 Women's World Championship. China will play North Korea in Sunday's final. The North Koreans defeated Brazil 1-0 in the first semifinal Thursday. The United States, which outshot China 23-5, also was knocked out in the semifinals two years ago when the tournament was the Under-19 Women's World Championship. With penalty kicks at 4-4, U.S. goalkeeper Val Henderson saved Ma Xiaoxu's shot by diving left. But with a chance to win the game, Brittany Bock hit the outside of the right post. Zhu Wei converted China's sixth kick, and Lauren Cheney shot right at goalkeeper Zhang Yanru, giving the Chinese the victory. Carrie Dew, Danesha Adams, Amanda Poach and Stephanie Lopez converted the first four kicks for the United States, and Zhuang Ran, Zhang Wei, Yuang Fan and Zi Jingling made the first four shots for China. In the other semifinal, Ri Un Hyang scored in the 87th minute for North Korea.
