Associated Press

HIROSHIMA, Japan -- The United States tied China 1-1 in Group D at the women's under-20 World Cup on Thursday, ensuring Germany became the first team to advance to the quarterfinals.

Shen Lili scored with a superbly struck drive from the top of the area in the 19th minute and Maya Hayes tied it for the Americans with her fourth goal of the tournament in the 36th. The U.S. has four points and must avoid defeat in its final group match against Germany.

Substitute Lina Magull scored an injury-time winner as defending champion Germany beat Ghana 1-0, while North Korea routed Argentina 9-0.

China, which has one point and still has a chance of advancing, plays Ghana in its last game of the group stage.
