U.S. soccer team moves to regional semis
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados — After routing Barbados at home, the United States managed only a slim victory on the road.
Already ahead by eight goals in the home-and-home, total-goals series, the Americans advanced to the regional semifinals of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup with a listless 1-0 win victory Sunday.
Eddie Lewis scored in the 21st minute off a through ball from 19-year-old Freddy Adu, who started his first World Cup qualifier.
The United States advanced on 9-0 aggregate following the big win at Carson, Calif., on June 15. The U.S. has outscored Barbados 20-0 in four meetings, all World Cup qualifiers, including two matches in 2000.
