U.S. U-18 MNT Finishes Second at Lisbon International Tournament

MAFRA, Portugal (May 25, 2013) – The U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team finished in second place at the Lisbon International Tournament despite a 2-1 loss against Hungary. U.S. forward Rubio Rubin was named Player of the Tournament.

Hungary scored in the 10th minute when Gergely Bobal beat to players to the end line on the right side of the field. Bobal crossed it low to the middle of the 18-yard box where Szabolcs Varga took a shot that went over U.S. goalkeeper Zack Steffen. Hungary got another just two minutes later when Dominik Nagy took a shot from 25 yards that took a slight deflection and snuck under Steffen.

The U.S. pulled on back in the 43rd minute when Marco Delgado won the ball at midfield and dished it to Amando Moreno. Moreno played it out left for Paul Arriola who cut inside onto his right food and finished a shot just inside the near post.
