Canada hands U.S. U-20s 1-0 defeat in finale

[MARBELLA INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENT] The U.S. under-20 men’s national team lost for the first time in three games when it dropped a 1-0 decision to Canada’s U-20s in their finale at the 2014 Marbella U-21 International Tournament at the Marbella Football Center.

Dylan Carreiro, currently on loan to Arbroath from fellow Scottish club Dundee, scored a fifth-minute goal off a pass from Toronto FC's Manny Aparicio and that held up the rest of the way.

Dembakwi Yomba, who had scored once in each of the previous two matches, struck the crossbar with header  after he was set up by Russell Canouse in the 42nd minute.

The U.S. U-20s posted a 4-3 victory against Russia’s U-21s and a 1-0 win against Ireland's U-20s.

Canada played to a 2-2 tie with England U-20s in Bournemouth before moving to Spain, where it defeated the Russian U-21s, 2-1, in Marbella.

    This result coupled with the embarrassing loss to Ireland for the full mens National team just solidifies the fact that these coaches just don't know how to pick them! Political choices because of who a player is related to or based on their ethnic background or country that they were raised in or the notion that European players are simply better cannot be the way the players are chosen any longer. In order to move forward they need to look at our good old USA born and bred players and see that they have quite a talented pool! Stop just picking the same ones and branch out......
