A lot of reserves played, but Japan's U-23s beat Chivas USA by 4-0 on Saturday. Haven't gotten the release on it yet so can't post full lineups but only a handful of starters played any substantial minutes.
We'll see who plays for the team on Monday against DC United, a match I will attend.
Good thing is for some of you planning to catch Chivas USA in Santa Clarita for the Feb. 23 friendly against Columbus, some of the walking wounded are hoping to play in that game, so you may see the return of Jonathan Bornstein and perhaps some of the other injured players (Panchito Mendoza, Alecko Eskandarain, Paulo Nagamura, etc.).
