FRISCO, Texas (AP) Darlington Nagbe's first international goal was a lift for the United States in its next-to-last tuneup before hosting next month's Copa America.

Nagbe scored on a 90th-minute volley, and the U.S. beat Ecuador 1-0 in an exhibition Wednesday night for just its third win in 21 games against South American teams over the past nine years. The U.S. had 14 losses and four draws in that span.

Born in Liberia, Nagbe was making his fifth international appearance following his debut in November, made shortly after he became a U.S. citizen.
