U 20 World Cup: USA draws S.Korea, 1-1

Josmer Altidore tangles with the S.Korean defense
The US staved off a tough S.Korean U20 side that was clearly a notch faster than the defense expected it to be. The first half saw the US take the lead after Freddy Adu at the near post flicked a long ball from Sal Zizzo onto an onrushing Danny Szetela. The S.Koreans equalized 20 minutes later through Young Rok Shin on a one on one situation with Chris Seitz.
Chris Seitz came up with some huge saves which might have otherwise made the score line completely one sided.

It does not get easier for the US because they have to play Poland which beat Brazil, 1-0 and of course Brazil too. So a win against the other teams would help their going onto the next stage considerably.
