    Germany eliminated the USA by a 3:1 score in the Semifinals of the 2004 FIFA Under-19 Women's World Championship at the Suphachalasai Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand on Wednesday.

    The Germans opened the scoring in the 11th minute of the first half with a goal by Annike Krahn, but the stars & stripes leveled the match (1:1) after an own goal by Krahn five minutes later.

    In the second half, Melanie Behringer and Patricia Hanebeck scored in the 69th and 82nd minutes, respectively for Germany in the 3:1 final score.

    This is the second consecutive FIFA Women's World Competition that Germany eliminates the USA from reaching the finals, as the stars & stripes fell 3:0 to the eventual champion Germans at the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup Semifinals. COMPLETE STORY
