U.S. U-20 MNT Drops Final Game at Dallas Cup to Eintracht Frankfurt

FRISCO, Texas (March 31, 2010) -- The U.S. U-20 Men's National Team finished play in the Dallas Cup Super Group with a 1-0 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday night. Despite allowing only two goals in three games, Thomas Rongen's team finished with a 1-2 record at the event.

A goal just before halftime was all Eintracht Frankfurt, the youth affiliate of the Bundesliga side, needed to overcome the U.S. Cenk Tosun took advantage of some confusion at the top of the U.S. box. He carried the ball into the area and took a shot that MacMath did well to save, but a rebound went right back to Tosun. He made the most of his second chance, scoring the game's lone goal.

With its victory against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Wednesday, Mexico's U-20 MNT will represent the group in the Dallas Cup semifinals on Friday.
