The United States men’s national team fell 2-0 to Japan in the team’s penultimate World Cup tune-up match in Dusseldorf on Friday. Gregg Berhalter’s side struggled mightily against their high-pressing opponents and likely would’ve conceded a few more goals if not for some fine goalkeeping by Matt Turner. It was a less than ideal performance ahead of the big tournament in November. The Americans will get one more chance to play together next week in Spain against Saudi Arabia before the World Cup begins in November.
