Istanbul • The U.S. was knocked out of the Under-20 World Cup in the first round, finishing last in Group A with a 4-1 loss to Ghana on Thursday night.

At the senior level, Ghana eliminated the U.S. in the opening round of the 2006 World Cup and in the second round of the 2010 tournament. The American U20s were outscored 9-3 in the tournament, opening with a 4-1 loss to Spain and then coming from behind to tie France 1-1.

The U.S. U20s have not advanced past the group stage since the 2007 team with Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley and Freddy Adu.

With the loss, Real Salt Lake's Luis Gil will return to the team in time for the July 3rd game against Philadelphia.
