U.S. U-18 MNT Fall, 1-0, to Portugal in Final Lisbon Tournament Match

LISBON, Portugal (June 11, 2006) – The U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team fell, 1-0, to tournament host Portugal on Sunday, June 11, in the last match of the 2006 Lisbon International Tournament.

The U.S. finished the three-team tournament with a 0-1-2 recording, drawing against Sweden Norway earlier in the week.

The U.S. U-18s were unable to get a goal against a solid Portuguese team, and played with a man less for the final 12 minutes of the match when Cameron Brown was sent off in the 78th minute, just two minutes after coming in as a substitute for Josmer Altidore.
