U.S. Beach Soccer National Team Falls to Mexico & El Salvador in CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (April 4, 2015) – After a dominating start to the 2015 CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship in El Salvador, the U.S. Beach Soccer National Team lost its final two matches on back-to-back nights to finish in fourth place in the 16-nation tournament.

On Friday, April 3, the USA faced Mexico in the semifinals in a highly-contested match that would see the winner not only advance to the championship match, but also qualify for the 2015 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup. Mexico started strong and soon held a big lead over the USA. However, the stars and striped fought its way back to tie the matchup 3-3 with less than 10 minutes of play left. Mexico wasted no time however, and notched its fourth tally minutes later to claim the 4-3 victory and leave the USA without a World Cup spot.

The following night, the USA faced host-nation El Salvador in the third place game in front of thousands of fans. The environment proved advantageous to the locals, who finished in third place after a 5-2 effort over the U.S. side.
