SUEZ, Egypt - A 4-1 win over Cameroon on Tuesday improved the United States record to 1-1 at the 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup. Notre Dame freshman midfielder Dillon Powers (Plano, Texas/Plano Senior) came on in the 73rd minute and completed the match for the United States.

Powers started the first match of group competition, a 3-0 loss to Germany on Sept. 26, and played the entire first half. Fighting Irish sophomore defender Aaron Maund (Dorchester, Mass./The Roxbury Latin School) has yet to see match time in the tournament. The U.S. will conclude group play against Korea Republic on Friday, Oct. 2. That match can be seen live on ESPN2 at 12:45 p.m. (ET). All three of the USA's group matches are being played at the brand new Mubarak Stadium in Suez. 



The top two teams from each of the six four-team groups along with the top four remaining squads will advance to The Round of 16, which will take place Oct. 5-7. The quarterfinals are set for Oct. 9-10, with the semifinals to follow on Oct. 13. The championship match and third-place game are scheduled for Oct. 16.

Every game of the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup will be shown live on the ESPN family of networks with Galavision also broadcasting all three U.S. group games. Fans can also follow every U.S. game live on ussoccer.com's MatchTracker.
