US Under-20 Soccer Team Beats Argentina 2-1


The U.S. men's under-20 soccer team has recorded a stunning 2-1 victory over Argentina at the Suwon International Youth Football Tournament in South Korea.

Kamani Hill was the hero as the second-half substitute buried a breakaway shot in the final moments of the game to give the Americans Tuesday's win at Suwon World Cup Stadium.

The U.S. team fell behind early as Argentina scored in the eighth minute of play. But the U.S. fought back to gain the equalizer 10 minutes later as Chad Barrett buried a corner kick that was juggled by the Argentine goalkeeper. The rest of the match was in Argentina's favor as the South American power took 15 shots overall, compared to the USA's seven.

But Hill allowed the U.S. team to kick off the tournament with a victory when he got behind the Argentina defense and scored on a low shot into in the goal.

The U.S. will next face South Korea on Thursday. The Koreans beat Egypt in the late match, 1-0.
