USA-Japan postgame: Matt Turner

“They kind of knew what to expect, and it was almost like they were thinking a few things before us. And I think it took us too long to adapt to the game.”

-- U.S. goalkeeper Matt Turner on Japan's dominance in its 2-0 win over the USA in Friday's World Cup warm-up match. The USA turned the ball over eight times in the first half in its own third of the field, the most in any half since 2010 (per OptaJack). It finished the game without a shot on goal.
