(AP) The United States drew 1-1 with France at the Under-20 World Cup on Monday on a goal in the 85th minute by substitute Daniel Cuevas.


France appeared set to win and advance to the knockout stage after Yaya Sanogo scored his second goal of the tournament. His penalty kick in the 48th minute came after Dimitri Foulquier was sideswiped by America's Javan Torre in the penalty 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 more confident toward the end and it paid off when Cuevas pounced on a loose ball in the penalty area.
