The United States Under-20 team was left heartbroken in Argentina after being knocked out of the World Cup on Sunday night.

The United States were beaten by Uruguay at the Estadio Unico Madre de Ciudades in the quarter-finals.

The South Americans beat the United States 2-0 in Santiago del Estero, dominating the game from start to finish.

Uruguay will face Israel on Thursday, the same day South Korea will face Italy for a place in the final.

Uruguay opened the scoring in the 21st minute after a counterattack put Anderson Duarte in front of an empty net. The Uruguayans doubled their lead in the 56th minute thanks to an own goal from Joshua Wynder.

The United States conceded no goals in their first four games of the tournament.

‘That’s life. If you don’t have enough, you don’t win,’ USA coach Mikey Varas told the official broadcaster after the game. “They fought, they got what they had and they had a great tournament here.”

Uruguay coach Marcelo Brioli agreed that the first goal of the match came as the USA team were dominating.

“The first minutes of the match were difficult, but the maturity of our team made the difference,” said Brioli.

None of the four remaining teams in the tournament have ever won it. Uruguay were runners-up in 1997 and 2013. Israel is taking part in the U-20 World Cup for the first time.
