A late goal from Daniel Cuevas earns the USA a 1-1 draw with France at the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey.

A late goal from Daniel Cuevas has earned the USA a 1-1 draw with France at the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey.

France were on the verge of qualifying for the last 16 before they conceded six minutes from time as the Americans earned their first point of the tournament.

Following a goalless first half, the French took the lead on 48 minutes through Yaya Sanogo's penalty after Javan Torre was penalised for his foul on Dimitri Foulquier.

The USA were awarded a penalty of their own on 64 minutes, but Luis Gil had his tame effort saved by Alphonse Areola.

Jean-Christophe Bahebeck nearly doubled his team's advantage soon after when his free kick came back off the crossbar.

Les Bleus were punished six minutes from time as Cuevas popped up in the area to poke home following a scramble.
