Seitz blanks Japan as U-23s earn draw

The U.S. U-23 men's national team earned a deserved 0-0 draw against the Japan U-22 national team in Kumamoto, Japan. More than 14,000 fans gathered at the KKWing Stadium to see the teams share the spoils in the Kirin Challenge Cup, the first match under new head coach Bob Bradley. Goalkeeper Chris Seitz made several key saves throughout the contest, twice getting help from the woodwork as well. "I thought it was a good game," said Bradley, who remains undefeated as a head coach for both the U-23s and the full national team. "This is a new group, and in the first half I thought there were many players who were nervous. It took them a half to adjust, and I thought the second half was a very good step. The commitment was much better, and you could see the confidence growing as the game went on. It was a great atmosphere tonight and a good learning experience for our players." The U-23 national team will conclude the two-match tour on Friday night when they face local JFL side Rosso Kumamoto. The team will depart Japan on Saturday morning and return to their respective clubs to resume training.
