U.S. In Title Game

Keith O’Neill scored twice in the first 33 minutes and Ireland dominated Bolivia 3-0, leaving today’s United States-Mexico game to decide the winner of exhibition U.S. Cup ‘96.

The victory was the only one for Ireland in the four-team tournament and means the winner of today’s final game in Pasadena, Calif., between the U.S. (1-0-1) and Mexico (1-1-0) will take the title.

A tie would give the trophy to Mexico and some measure of revenge for the United States’ 4-0 rout in last year’s tournament.
