U.S. MNT Defeats Turkey 2-1 at Sold-Out Red Bull Arena

HARRISON, New Jersey (June 1, 2014) – Fabian Johnson and Clint Dempsey each scored a goal as the U.S. Men’s National Team defeated Turkey 2-1 in front of a sellout crowd of 26,762 at Red Bull Arena.

Goalkeeper Tim Howard, who played the opening 45 minutes, set a U.S. MNT record with the 54th win of his National Team career, breaking Kasey Keller’s record. Brad Guzan played the second half.

Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Fabian Johnson (Michael Bradley), 26th minute: The hustle of Fabian Johnson and the precision passing of Michael Bradley worked to perfection for the USA. Johnson passed to Bradley and immediately darted up the middle of Turkey’s defense. Bradley took a quick touch and flicked the ball ahead just inside the box, where Johnson one-timed with his left foot and found the inside of the left side of the frame for a one-goal lead. It was Johnson’s first goal in 21 international appearances. USA 1, TUR 0 (SEE GOAL)

USA – Clint Dempsey (unassisted), 52nd minute: Clint Dempsey was in the right place at the right time when Turkey defender Hakan Kadir Balta faltered on a clearance. The U.S. MNT worked the ball around from Michael Bradley, Brad Davis and left back Timmy Chandler who sent the ball into the area. Balta had every opportunity to clear the cross, but he botched the touch and the ball trickled to Dempsey near the right post, where the MNT captain capitalized with his first goal of 2014 and 37th goal of his career. USA 2, TUR 0 (SEE GOAL)

TUR – Selcuk Inan (penalty kick), 90th minute: With injury time looming, Timmy Chandler lost the ball to Mustafa Pektemek, who attacked the near right side against U.S. goalkeeper Brad Guzan. Pektemek patiently waited for an opening, shot to the left side of the frame and USA center back Geoff Cameron was called for a handball to stop the shot. Selcuk Inan crisply struck his right-footed penalty inside the left side of the frame, past a diving Guzan who anticipated correctly on the attempt. USA 2, TUR 1 (FINAL)

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
TUR – Ozan Tufan, 21st minute: Six minutes earlier, Jozy Altidore’s header goal was disallowed for a push to Turkey goalkeeper Onur Recep Kivrak. But Altidore stayed heavy on the attack and dished from the right side of the box to Michael Bradley. Bradley’s shot was blocked by Turkey defender Ozan Tufan. Tufan’s right-footed clearance kept the score level at the time as both teams came close on several occasions during the opening 25 minutes.

USA – Jermaine Jones, 35th and 36th minutes: U.S. holding midfielder Jermaine Jones had a couple big stops in a one-minute stretch to keep Turkey off of the score sheet. He blocked a Gokhan Gonul shot in the 35th minute and then made a sliding stop to disrupt another Gonal strike with his right foot. Jones briefly received medical attention as he took the shot to his body, but he was quick to continue play.

TUR – Ozan Tufan and Onur Recep Kivrak, 37th minute: In a frenzied sequence, Jozy Altidore sent the ball ahead to Clint Dempsey who initially had a step on Turkey defender Ozan Tufan. As the two rushed into the box, Tufan bumped shoulder-to-shoulder to disrupt Dempsey’s attempt. Shouts for a penalty arose from the U.S. MNT bench, but play continued and Dempsey stuck with the loose ball, only to have his second attempt blocked by Turkey goalkeeper Onur Recep Kivrak.

USA – Brad Guzan, 60th minute: The left side of USA’s defense allowed Gokhan Gonul to have plenty of open space down the right side. Chandler attempted to track back in time to get in front of Gonul, but Gonul got his shot off at the near right side. Second-half sub Guzan stepped up, however, with a clutch save at the near right post to keep the two-goal lead at the time.

TUR – Onur Recep Kivrak, 81st minute: Mix Diskerud played the ball to Jozy Altidore down the right side and Altidore cut inside to his left to evade Turkey’s Ozan Tufan. That created a strong one-on-one chance against Turkey goalkeeper Onur Recep Kivrak, but Kivrak stepped up with a foot save to turn away the U.S. MNT striker.

U.S. WNT Venció 3-1 a Corea del Sur

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (19 de octubre, 2017) – La U.S. Selección Femenina de Estados Unidos superó en un partido amistoso a su similar de la República de Corea – popularmente conocida como Corea del Sur – por 3-1, manteniendo así el invicto en duelos ante la selección asiática.

La U.S. WNT tomó una cómoda ventaja de dos goles en los primeros 40 minutos mediante lucidas definiciones de Julie Ertz y Alex Morgan. La primera con una palomita y la segunda con una media vuelta ante una pegajosa marca.

Con su anotación, Morgan llegó a cuatro partidos consecutivos marcando con la selección.

Sin embargo, la finalización de la primera parte trajo dos preocupaciones al seleccionado estadounidense.

El primero, la lesión de la joven Mallory Pugh por un aparente tirón en el tendón de la corva y por el cual tuvo que salir de cambio. El segundo, por un sorpresivo gol de media distancia que metía a las ‘Guerreras Taegeuk’ de llenó en el juego sin realmente haber pisado el área estadounidense.

Pero las posibles dudas o titubeos fueron rápidamente anulados al arranque de la parte complementaria con el tercer gol de la U.S. WNT, con un penalti convertido por Megan Rapinoe.

Estados Unidos tuvo ocasiones para que el marcador terminara en goleada, pero la portera KANG Gaae tuvo una noche sobresaliente. Mientras que al igual que en la primera parte, la ofensiva coreana solo pudo generar peligro con un solitario remate de larga distancia, pero que en la parte complementaria no término en la red.

Próximamente: La U.S. WNT volverá a la acción el próximo domingo, 22 de octubre cuando enfrente nuevamente en un amistoso a la selección de la República de Corea, pero esta vez en el Sahlen's Stadium en Cary, Carolina del Norte. El partido se jugará a las 2 p.m. ET a través de la señal de ESPN.

Resumen de Goles:

USA – Julie Ertz, minuto 24: Tiro de esquina cobrado por Megan Rapinoe a primer poste. Ertz se tendió de palomita y su remate se le escabulló de túnel a la arquera de las surcoreanas.

USA – Alex Morgan, minuto 40: Mallory Pugh y Kelley O’Hara se combinaron por derecha. O’Hara desbordó hasta línea de fondo y alcanzo a sacar una diagonal retrasada a media altura. Morgan controló de derecha en la periferia del área chica a primer poste, giró para deshacerse de su marca y enfilarse para rematar de media vuelta con un zurdazo que se fue al fondo del arco.

KOR – HAN Chaerin, minuto 45+5: Pelotazo largo para Chaerin, quien desde tres cuartos de cancha fue avanzando mientras las defensoras estadounidenses retrocedían. La atacante decidió pegarle de larga distancia y con un riflazo de zurda elevado venció a Alyssa Naeher.

USA – Megan Rapinoe, minuto 52: Lynn Williams entró sola por derecha al área de las asiáticas y buscó a Rapinoe que venía por el centro. Rapinoe recibió una falta y la árbitro marcó la pena máxima. La misma Rapinoe se encargó de convertirlo en gol con un disparo potente al centro.

Atajadas Claves y Jugadas Peligrosas:

USA – Alex Morgan, minuto 7: Ertz recuperó un balón en el centro del campo y abrió para Rapinoe. La dorsal 15 filtró un pase para Morgan en su corrida en el área. Alex hizo la recepción y sacó un disparo de zurda a media altura que la portera  KANG Gaae atajó.

USA – Kelly O’Hara, minuto 12: Disparo de media distancia por parte de O’Hara, el cual atajo KANG Gaae tendiéndose a su derecha.   

USA – Alex Morgan, minuto 57: Centro a segundo poste, donde Morgan remató de cabeza pero directo a las manos de la portera asiática.

KOR – JI Soyun, minuto 59: Soyun buscó una combinación con su compañera que jugó de poste en tres cuartos de cancha, y le regresó el balón a la ‘10’ de Corea quien sorprendió con un cañonazo de derecha de larga distancia que se estrelló en la horquilla.

USA – Crystal Dunn, minuto 66: La delantera de las barras y las estrellas se escapó ligeramente cargada a la izquierda. Dentro del área intentó definir con un disparo a media altura con el cual de quedó KANG Gaae.

USA – Lindsey Horan, minuto 74: Centro proveniente de un tiro libre por la banda derecha al corazón del área. Horan metió un elevado y solido remate de cabeza que la cancerbera surcoreana atajó a una mano.
