U.S. U-23s fall to Turkey in Toulon opener

The U.S. U-23 men's national team fell to Turkey, 3-2, in their first game of the Toulon International Tournament in France, despite second-half goals from Eric Brunner and Sammy Ochoa.

The U.S. team trailed 2-0 at halftime, and finished the match without captain Benny Feilhaber, who left the game in the 67th minute with a knee injury. Feilhaber will be evaluated on Thursday, May 22, in England after he joins the senior national team.

"I thought in the first half we came out a little nervous, which is a natural thing," said Nowak. "We were playing for the first time together. We came here to this tournament to gain experience and to have a look at different players. The group trained together for only five days, so for their first time it wasn't a bad effort."

Turkey opened the scoring in the 18th minute, after the U.S. was unable to clear a corner kick. Orhan Sam took control of the deflection, touching it to Eren Gungor, who beat goalkeeper Dominic Cervi at the near post. Nuri Sahin added the second for Turkey in the 35th minute. Ilhan Parlak scored the decisive third in the 59th minute, seconds after Eric Brunner had pulled one back for the U.S.

The U.S. currently sits in third place in Group B behind Turkey and Italy, who beat the Ivory Coast, 2-0, in the second game of the night at Stade Mayol. The U.S. will face Ivory Coast on Friday, May 23, while Italy and Turkey will meet in the second match of the double-header in La Seyne.
