U-20 WNT Ties Japan 2-2 to Finish Two-Game Set at U.S. Soccer NTC

CARSON, Calif. (May 24, 2017) – Both teams scored a goal in each half as the U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team tied the Japan Under-20 Women’s National Team 2-2 in the second of two matches between the countries at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center.

Japan defeated the USA 2-1 on May 22, scoring in the last minute of second half stoppage time.

For the second game in a row, Japan scored early, this time tallying in the 6th minute as Fuka Kono found some space the left flank, cut inside and hit a right-footed grass cutter that snuck just inside the post.

The USA tied the game in the 25th minute, when Abigail Kim got around her defender on the right flank and sent a cross into the middle that Adrienne Richardson tapped into the net for her first international goal at the U-20 level.

The USA took the lead just a few minutes into the second half. This time Richardson played provider, sending a diagonal ball to Sophia Smith, who dribbled at the net and scored her fifth U-20 goal. She scored her first four during a tournament in La Manga, Spain last March.

Japan equalized in the 62nd minute off a turnover in midfield that led to a 2-on-1 scenario, and Asato Miyagawa finished past U.S. goalkeeper Laurel Ivory for the final score line.
