Beat Egypt on Diskerud goal

Posted on 30 June 2009 by ASN Staff

The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team defeated Egypt 1-0 behind a Mikkel Diskerud goal and a Brian Perk shutout in the first of two friendlies against the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup hosts. The team is also getting accustomed to the climate, weather and atmosphere of the FIFA U-20 World Cup which will take place from Sept. 24-Oct 16. Diskerud – who joined the team on Thursday – started the play that led to a goal by taking a restart to Tony Taylor. Taylor slipped the ball back to the Stabak midfilder and he was in alone on goal, finishing low past Mohamed Abou Gabal for the game’s only goal. Taylor also made his presence felt on Monday, netting the game-tying goal by converting a 52nd minute penalty kick.
