Checking in from Northern Ireland...

The U-20's are in Northern Ireland this week, where Thomas Rongen's side is competing in the 2008 edition of the Milk Cup. The Milk Cup is one of the premier youth tournaments in Europe, and scouts and teams from across the globe converge on Northern Ireland to take part.

The team arrived late last week and though they started the competition with a loss against Northern Ireland (white starting 11 picture), Rongen's team rebounded nicely to beat Wales, 4-0, yesterday (navy blue starting 11 picture).

Goals from Brek Shea (2), Peri Marosevic and Danny Cruz were more than enough for three points, as the U.S. defense held tight while not allowing the Welsh many opportunities.

The U.S. next faces Belgium on Friday in the Third place match of the Tournament.

You can check out video highlights and lots of great pictures and info at the Milk Cup website...
