SUEZ, Egypt -- Germany defeated the United States 3-0 at the under-20 World Cup.
The Americans produced few chances. A strong drive from Jared Jeffrey hit the crossbar in the 65th minute.
Germany got goals from Dani Schahin, Florian Jungwirth and Manuel Schaeffler on Saturday.
Schahin put Germany ahead in the 30th, sending American keeper Brian Perk the wrong way with a penalty kick. Jungwirth added the second two minutes later, firing the ball past Perk from the edge of the area.
In the 72nd, Schaeffler made it 3-0 after taking a cross from substitute Cihan Kaptan.
