Colombia Tops U.S. U-20 MNT in Peru

AREQUIPA, Peru (Sept. 8, 2010) -- The U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team dropped a 2-0 decision to Colombia during the Cuadrangular Internacional in Peru. Colombia, who will host the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup, scored two goals within a three-minute span early in the second half.

In the 48th minute, Javier Calle converted a controversial penalty kick that was awarded to Colombia after a foul was whistled during a corner kick. Three minutes later, the South American side capitalized on a turnover in the U.S. defensive end. Fabian Castillo took a touch around the last U.S. defender and hit a rocket that gave goalkeeper Cody Cropper little chance.

The U.S. will play host Peru at San Agustin National University on Friday, with a placement match to be played on Sunday before the team departs.
