[U.S. U-18 MEN] The U.S. U-18 men's national team fell to France, 3-0, in its opening game at a four-team tournament in Tel Aviv.

The Americans will face Israel on Thursday and conclude the tournament with a game against Germany, a 7-0 winner over Israel, on Friday.

The Bleuets got goals from Lille's Jeremy Obin, Lens midfielder Geoffrey Konodogbia and Lyon's Alassane Plea and finished with an 11-3 edge in shots.
