[U.S. UNDER-20 MEN] Defender Gale Agbossoumonde, who recently made his senior international debut for the U.S. national team, scored to give the USA a 1-1 tie with Mexico in the final game of the Torneo de las Americas under-20 competition Sunday in Kennesaw, Ga.

The result was the second 1-1 tie for the Americans, who also tied Colombia. After both games, a shootout was held, and both times the USA lost.

Agbossoumonde, who made a late appearance in the USA's 1-0 win over South Africa, scored on a rebound after his initial shot was saved by the Mexican goalie.

Agbossoumonde is currently training in Portugal with second division Estoril but is without a club following first division Braga's decision not to extend the loan arrangement it had with South American company Traffic, which owns his contract.

The Red Bulls' Juan Agudelo, who scored against South Africa, also played in Sunday's game against Mexico.

The 2011 Concacaf U-20 championship will be held from April 3-17 in Guatemala.

Four teams will advance to the 2011 U-20 World Cup, which will be held in Colombia July 29-Aug. 20.
