2011 U-17 Nike Friendlies: U.S. 2, France 2

American striker Wesley Wade—a New York Red Bulls academy product—scored a dramatic 93rd-minute equalizer to lift the U.S. to a 2-2 tie with France in the opening match of the U-17 Nike International Friendlies in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, last night.

DeAndre Robinson had drawn first blood for the U.S. in the 25th minute, bending a shot into the top corner from 22 yards, but France equalized just before the break and went ahead on a U.S. own goal in the 75th minute. That set the stage for Wade’s heroics.

In the day’s other match, Brazil edged Turkey 1-0. The U.S. faces Turkey on Friday at 5:00 p.m. ET (Fox Soccer).
