Because of a driving practice I had this morning, I couldn't watch the U.S. Men's team defeat Japan 1-0 in their opening game, which is considerably better than how the U.S. Women opened up their tournament.
Houston Dynamo representative Stuart Holden scored the lone goal in the game, trickling it past Japanese goalkeeper Shusaku Nishikawa.
It was the first goal for the United States in three games, in which they played Honduras, Cameroon, and Cote d'Ivoire. The next games for the American's will be against Holland and Nigeria.
(By the way, Holland is my pick to win this tournament.)
Some other results from today's action, Brazil beat Belgium 1-0 in Group C play, Argentina took down Cote d'Ivoire, 2-1, and Holland played to a draw against Nigeria.
Holden on, U.S. wins 1-0 [NBCOlympics.com]
