[FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL ESPOIRS] Forward Daniel Cuevas scored in the 75th minute to give the U.S. under-20 national team a 1-0 win over the Democratic Republic of Congo’s U-21 national team -- its first victory in three games at the 41st edition of the Festival International Espoirs.

Second-half sub Alonso Hernandez set up the goal when he laid the ball off to Cuevas near the top of the box, and the Santos forward beat diving Congo goalkeeper Riffi Mandanda.

Among the five changes in the starting lineup from Thursday's 2-1 loss to Colombia were Mikey Lopez and Victor Pineda, who made their first appearances of the Toulon tournament. For Pineda, it was his first international appearance with the U-20s since coming back from a knee injury suffered last year.

Goalkeepers Cody Cropper and Kendall McIntosh combined for the shutout.

The win leaves the USA in third place with three points after three games. France is first with seven points, and Colombia second with six. South Korea (1 point) and the Democratic Republic of Congo (0) trail. Colombia, South Korea and the Democratic Republic of Congo all have a game in hand.

The U.S. U-20s conclude group play Wednesday when they face South Korea at Stade Louis Hon in Saint-Raphael. The game kicks off at 5 p.m. local (11 a.m. ET) and will be broadcast on beIN SPORT.
