AREQUIPA, Peru (Sept. 10, 2010) -- Peru scored in the 89th minute and the first minute of stoppage time to take a come-from-behind victory against the U.S. U-20 MNT at the Cuadrangular Internacional in Arequipa, Peru.
Victor Garza put up a great individual effort to give the U.S. a 1-0 advantage just before halftime, beating three defenders down his left wing before cutting into the middle and firing a shot from just inside the box that gave Peruvian goalkeeper Carlos Caceda little chance.
The U.S. looked to be holding on to its first win in Arequipa, but in the 89th minute, a passing sequence from the hosts put Osnar Noranha into the box here he finished low and inside the far post in the 89th minute. Seconds before the final whistle, Andre Carillo received the ball just outside the penalty area. He turned and beat his lone defender before curling the ball past Samir Badr to hand the U.S. a heartbreaking defeat.
The Americans will have another chance against Peru on Sunday before departing Arequipa on Monday.
