U.S. ties Ivory Coast in Olympic warmup

HONG KONG -- The soccer game between the United States and Ivory Coast ended in a scoreless tie Wednesday at a four-nation tournament ahead of the Beijing Olympics.

The Netherlands, considered a contender for gold in Beijing, was to play Cameroon later Wednesday at the Hong Kong Stadium.

The Ivory Coast team dominated the first half but failed to convert. Kafoumba Coulibaly had two shots on goal late in the half but U.S. goalkeeper Brad Guzan caught both.

The United States seized the momentum briefly in the second half before the Ivory Coast had promising chances without finishing. Sekou Cisse's strike from near the edge of the area produced another good save by Guzan.

The U.S. will play Cameroon on Saturday and the Ivory Coast will play the Netherlands.
