Well... the U.S. didn't get the three points against Turkey, but the second half is sure to build confidence and momentum in the team going forward in the tournament. Some post-game tibits:

-Eric Brunner's goal came in his first-ever international game
-The Olympic-bound teams are taking full advantage of the opportunity to scout each other at this tournament. The U.S. coaches were all in attendance last night as Japan beat the Netherlands, 1-0, and the technical staff of both teams were out in full force tonight.
-The match against Turkey was the only game of the tournament that all 22 U.S. players will be available.
-Dominic Cervi and Benny Feilhaber will both leave the team tomorrow and fly to London to join the Men's National Team in advance of next week's match against England.
-Benny Feilhaber left tonight's game in the 67th minute with a knee injury. He will be evaluated upon his arrival in England tomorrow.
