U-20 MNT Drops 2-1 Decision to France to Round out Training Camp

VICHY, France (May 19, 2011) -- The U.S. U-20 MNT rounded out its brief training camp with a 2-1 loss to France in Vichy. After a 3-3 draw on Tuesday, the two teams played another even match on Thursday evening at Stade Vichy, but the home team had the edge on the scoreboard.

France got on the board in the 19th minute, but the USA answered back just three minutes later. Conor Doyle netted his second goal in as many games when he finished the rebound of a hard-struck free kick from Kelyn Rowe. France took the lead for good just 10 minutes into the second half.

The U.S. team, which was comprised of a mix of players born between 1991 and 1994, was in the five-day training camp by Tab Ramos, who used all 18 players during the two friendlies.
