    USA defeats Australia in Quarterfinals; China eliminates Canada

    The USA defeated Australia in the Quarterfinals of the 2004 FIFA Under-19 Women's World Championship in Chiangmai, Thailand on Sunday, while China eliminated Canada in Bangkok.

    After a scoreless first half, Amy Rodriguez and Megan Rapinoe notched goals in the 54th and 68th minutes, respectively, for the USA in the 2:0 win over Australia at the 700th Anniversary Stadium in Chiangmai.

    The stars & stripes progress into the Semifinals of the FIFA U-19 World Championship and will meet Germany on 24 November, at the Suphachalasai Stadium in Bangkok.

    In another Quarterfinal on Sunday, Canada were beaten 3:1 by China in Bangkok. After the ejection of the maple leafs' goalkeeper Stacey Van Boxmeer by Referee Anna De Toni of Italy in the opening 60 seconds of the match, the Chinese got on the board two minutes later with a penalty kick goal by Ying Zhang. Zhang scored her second for China in the 21st minute for a 2:0 halftime lead.

    Canada's Brittany Timko cut the deficit 2:1 with a goal in the 63rd minute of the second half, but Sa Liu scored for China two minutes later for the 3:1 final. China now advances to the semifinals and will face Brazil at the 24 November in Bangkok.
