U.S. U-20 MNT Rounds Out Training Camp in Egypt with 1-1 Draw With Hosts

CAIRO, Egypt (June 29, 2009) -- The U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team rounded out its foreign training camp with a 1-1 draw against Egypt. Tony Taylor, who assisted Mikkel Diskerud's game-winning goal in Saturday's 1-0 win, notched the equalizer on Monday when he converted a 52nd minute penalty kick.

The U-20s will return to their respective clubs/colleges/hometowns tomorrow with a better sense of what to expect when they return for the FIFA U-20 World Cup, scheduled for Sept. 14-Oct. 16 in Egypt.
