MARBELLA, Spain (Nov. 18, 2014) – The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team dropped a 1-0 decision to Canada’s U-20s at the 2014 Marbella U-21 International National Teams Football Tournament at the Marbella Football Center.
Canada’s Carreiro scored a fifth-minute goal and that held up the rest of the way.
One of the USA’s best scoring chances came in the 42nd minute, when Dembakwi Yomba’s header struck the crossbar after he was set up by Russell Canouse. Yomba had scored once in each of the previous two matches at the Marbella Tournament.
The U-20 MNT went 2-1-0 at the event, posting a 4-3 victory against Russia’s U-21s on Nov. 12 and a 1-0 win against the Republic of Ireland on Nov. 15.
The tournament served as the USA’s continued preparation for the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship, which runs Jan. 9-24 in Jamaica. The USA opens the tournament against Guatemala on Jan. 9 and looks to qualify for the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.
