They took the lead through Henen's 16th-minute strike but had to survive a scare just past the half-hour mark when Tachibana hit the post.
Bainbridge doubled the lead in the second half when he converted Brewster's pass after Ledson had almost scored a carbon copy of his stunner against LA Galaxy over the weekend.
Pail Tait's side were denied top spot in the group by River Plate's 7-0 win over Galaxy — the Argentine side needed to win by three goals or more to displace Everton from the top of the group — but qualified thanks to Monterey's 2-2 draw with Corinthians in the other group.
Everton U19s: Hewelt, Yates, Kenny, Thorniley, Robinson [Y:10'] (46' Birch), Ledson, Connolly [Y:60'], Donohue (85' Holland), Davies (61' Bainbridge), Dowell (67' Brewster (89' Graham)), Henen [Y:45] (67' Dyson).
Sub not Used: O'Loughlin.

My understanding is that the three Group winners plus best runner up to progress. If we are second on 6 points then it could be between us and SC Corinthians Paulista who have 4 points prior to their last match and Real Salt lake who have 3 points and a 5-5 GF going into their last match.

Are any Texas Toffees traveling to Dallas for the Friday games? I need to work around other plans (and work) but I might be interested in shooting up there Friday afternoon (from Austin) to watch both games, and then either come back late Friday, maybe, or stay up there and back on Saturday. Post interest here and I will check back tomorrow.

Progressing in this tournament is great news and I hope we begin to see a fair few of these youngsters integrated in the next few years. The way Garbutt, Browning and Robles have been underused this season gives me doubts....

They wonÂt suit us, even though they probably have phenomenal potential.

It will be followed by Monterry Raydos (Mex) vs River Plate (Arg), with both games in the Toyota Stadium, where the Final will also take place, at 6 pm CDT on Sunday.

Nice to see the same names popping up regularly like Henen, Ledson, Dowell and Kenny. Gives hope for the future and perhaps all will break into the first team squad at some stage.

The Dallas cup is an invitational Â– lots of high-level teams. Not feasible to play all games in the main stadium.

Damn you Texans with your decent weather, rampant sidearms, tasty barbeque and access to our Toffee youngsters during this long as shit two-week EPL layoff.
Also, just going off match summaries and stats, it certainly sounds like David Henen could be a real player. However if we end up doing it, we'd better keep hold of him. Can't wait to see more of Ledson and Kenny too.

Now, I don't know who has put their foot down but these days we see virtually nothing.
It has turned into the Roberto Martinez show with everyone reading from his script.

If you cannot access the channel as it is a USA channel, get Hotspot Shield and then you can access it by locating yourself as being in the USA. If that makes any sense!
Good luck and best of luck to the Blues tonight and tomorrow v Southampton.
