ISTANBUL (AP) - A late goal from substitute Daniel Cuevas earned the United States a hard-fought 1-1 draw with France in the Under-20 World Cup on Monday.
France looked on pace to win and advance to the knockout stage after Auxerre striker Yaya Sanogo scored his second goal of the tournament from a penalty kick in the 48th minute. It came after Dimitri Foulquier was sideswiped by America's Javan Torre in the area.
The United States, which lost its opening match to Spain, had few chances and missed those it did have - the worst when Luis Gil's penalty was easily saved in the 65th.
But the Americans grew in confidence toward the end and it paid off in the 85th. Cuevas pounced on a loose ball in the area and scored.
