Los Angeles Galaxy player Nathan Sturgis shared his thoughts on the U23 team, Beckham, etc, with the Japanese press.
I'm a little sad that UCLA's Kyle Nakazawa didn't make the U23 squad, because I'm sure the media there would have loved the story of his Japanese heritage.
Sturgis performed well in the match - which is something he's made a habit of during the tours abroad that he's taken. Of course, he's played well for the Galaxy, too.
Here's a quick mention of the match from another Japanese source, where the U.S. defense is praised. There's also a minute-by-minute report.
I wouldn't be surprised if Sturgis draws attention from Europe after the U20 World Cup in Canada.
