    Canadian under-20's downs Americans

     KINGSTON, Rhode Island (CP) -- The Canadian men's under-20 soccer team defeated the United States' under-20 team 2-1 on Friday at the U.S. Soccer Festival.

     Canada improved to 1-1-1 in the tournament and will face the U.S. under-23 side on Sunday.

     Julian DeGuzman of Toronto, who joined the Canadian team on Thursday from FC Saarbrucken, scored the winner in the 80th minute. He took a pass from Miles O'Connor of Mississauga, Ont., beat a defender and finished strongly.

     American Casey Connor tied the match in the 52nd miss.

     Gaspare Borselino of Laval, Que., opened the scoring for Canada in the 30th minute.

     "The guys were brilliant," said Canadian head coach Paul James. "This is a tremendous result for our team. I've always felt that we were going to have a good team and I'm just so proud of my players.

     "This a great boost for us as we prepare for the qualifying tournament next February."

     James singled out of the defensive play of Toronto's Victor Oppong, who left the game in the 65th minute and needed nine stitches to repair a cut above his upper lip.

     Oppong had collided with Connor, who was red-carded for the incident.
