Former University of Akron soccer standout Teal Bunbury scored his first goal for the U.S. Men's National Team late Saturday night in a 1-1 draw against Chile in a friendly before a crowd of 18,580 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

Esteban Paredes gave Chile a 1-0 lead with a goal in the 53rd minute.

Bunbury's equalizer came off a penalty kick in the 75th minute after teammate Juan Agudelo was tripped up in the penalty box by a Chilean defender.

‘‘I wanted to make a difference; I wanted to make an impact,’’ said Bunbury, who buried the penalty kick into the lower right corner of the net.
