Pakistan gave another stellar performance in the competition as they scored first against the US, although the first-half ended with a 1-1 scoreline, Pakistan took the lead in the second half as well, which the US equalised again.
At the end of fulltime both teams were 2-2. Extra-time was awarded but both sides were unable to score, forcing the game into penalties.
Pakistan won the match on penalty-kicks, which goal-keeper and captain Sameer Ahmed proved to be a wall for the opponents.
The teenager blocked at least two attempts by the US strikers in full-time, while he stopped one penalty-kick during the shoot-out.
