The United States Men’s National Team had a dismal outing on Friday as they lost 2-0 to Japan in a friendly in Düsseldorf, Germany. The USMNT held a ton of the possession, but couldn’t muster a shot on goal as Japan looked incredibly dangerous and took advantage of mistakes by the American defense.

With a dull performance, there weren’t a ton of standouts on the afternoon. However, the SSFC community recognized one player for playing a solid match. That man was Matt Turner, who had 6 saves during the match and almost singlehandedly kept the USMNT in it until the last few minutes. For that, he was named the SSFC Man of the Match.
