    El Salvador wins first at Beach World Cup

    RAVENNA, Italy - Agustin Ruiz gave El Salvador its first win in eight tries at the Beach Soccer World Cup, scoring with 26 seconds remaining to lift "Los Cuscatlecos" to a 4-3 win over Oman on Saturday.

    After an opening 11-2 defeat to Portugal on Thursday, El Salvador climbed into a tie for second place with Argentina in Group B with three points, and will face "Los Albicelestes" on Tuesday for a place in the quarterfinals.

    Elias Ramirez equalized for El Salvador in the 16th minute after it fell behind on a goal by Jalal Al Sinani four minutes earlier. The CONCACAF runner-up then went ahead with a strike by Tomas Hernandez and own-goal by Nasse Al Muhaini in the 26th minute.

    Hani Al Dhabat tied the game with 2½ minutes remaining, setting Ruiz to win it with his second goal in as many games.
