U.S. and Germany Advance Past Group Stage in FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup
The United States and Germany have both advanced past the group stage of the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.
Both squads will play in the knockout stage this weekend, with Purce and the U.S. squaring off with North Korea on Saturday (Aug. 16) at 5 p.m. ET, before Becker and the Germans take on Cup host Canada at 8 p.m.
A rising sophomore at Harvard, Purce has seen 202 minutes of action over the American's three contests, while Becker, an incoming freshman in 2014, has yet to see time with Germany.
