U.S. U-20s end Toulon Tournament on sour note with loss to South Korea

France Soccer U 21

What was meant to be a preparation for the Under-20 World Cup in two weeks in Turkey has brought up more questions than answers.

The U.S. Under-20 National Team dropped their final match of the tournament to South Korea, 1-0, leaving southern France with just one win and three losses. Not only that, but in the four games played the U.S. scored just three goals combined while giving up seven.

Han Sung-Gyu scored the lone goal of the match for South Korea on Wednesday, taking advantage of a crucial error from U.S. defender Shane O’Neill in the 62nd minute and slotting home past goalkeeper Cody Cropper.

What did you make of the match today? Do you have confidence in the team? Reserving judgement until the other MLS players join the team?
