U.S. U-17s split in France
November 7th, 2008 9AM



The U.S. under-17 national team split in the first two games during its eight-day training camp in France. The U-17s beat the Bretigny U-18 team, 2-0, and then lost to France's U-17 national team at the French national training center in Clairefontaine.

The Americans got goals from John Agudelo and Dustin Corea in the win over the Bretigny team. Benjamin Jeannot and Christopher Missilou scored for France in its 2-0 win. Also in the lineup was 16-year-old Terence Makengo, who recently became the youngest player to sign a pro contract with Monaco.

The Americans' last game is against Paris St. Germain's U-18 team Saturday in Clairefontaine.
