U.S. U-20 MNT Takes Second at Dallas Cup

DALLAS (April 20, 2014) – The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team settled for a runner-up finish at the 2014 Dallas Cup over the weekend. The USA fell to Argentina’s River Plate 2-0 in the title match on Sunday at the Cotton Bowl.

River Plate’s Lucas Boye scored both goals in the 35th and 83rd minutes.

A fatigued USA side was coming off a grueling 110-minute, 3-2 semifinal victory against Fluminense FC on Friday, a match in which the U.S. had to play most of the second half down a man.

Sunday’s game was delayed twice by inclement weather – before the start of the second half and approximately 20 minutes into the second half.
