[INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL ESPOIRS] The U.S. under-20 national team lost its second game at the International Festival Espoirs in France, dropping a 2-1 decision to Colombia at Stade des Costieres in Nimes. The USA led at the half on Columbus Crew rookie Wil Trapp's header in the sixth minute, but Colombia replied shortly after the break on goals by Jherson Vergara and Felipe Aguilar off deadly crosses from left-footed wizard Harrison Mojica.

Jordan Morris hit the crossbar in the second half and Alonso Hernandez had a late shot bounce off the base of the post for the USA. Both players are making their international debut for the USA at the Toulon tournament.
