[COPA MEXICO DE NACIONES] The U.S. under-17 national team's string of international titles ended when it fell to Ecuador, 2-1, in the semifinals of the Copa Mexico de Naciones on Friday in Mexico City. The Americans had come into the tournament with titles in three straight competitions at which they played their first team.

Ecuador went ahead on a goal by Washington Bryan Corozo early in the first half, and Joel Montezuma added to the lead late in the second half from the penalty spot after a foul by Danny Barbir in the area. Christian Pulisic set up Alejandro Zendejas for a consolation goal in stoppage time of the 70-minute match.

Ecuador will play Paraguay on Sunday in the final. Paraguay beat Brazil in a shootout after the other semifinal ended 1-1.

The Ecuador-Paraguay final and USA-Brazil third-place game will both take place at Azteca Stadium.

    US Soccer is pitiful, on Saturday US Soccer tweeted proudly that 39 of the 42 u14BNT players called to camp in Carson Ca were products of US Soccer development academies. The major soccer clubs in the US like US Club and other need to take action emmediatly to this snub. What, the rest of the youth soccer players in the country have a slim to none chance of being called into TC's, Local and national combines and National camps because of who they are playing soccer with. In many cases... regional status being one of them, kids cannot attend a DA. If US soccer is not willing to call a percentage of kids from non-developmen academies than I believe they should take the hard stance of not ordering uniforms from Nike. Nike is US soccers sponsor. This overwhelming bias and snub of players for possible inclusion and development at Training centers is wrong wrong wrong. Something must be done. What if Donovan could not go to a DA?
