The United States defeated Turkey this past Sunday 2-1 inside Red Bull Arena in the second of their three game run-up to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil later this month.  While the US could have played a more tidy game, a couple of stars shone through with key plays.  Twenty-six year old defender Fabian Johnson nailed home his first international goal off a gem of a short-lob from Michael Bradley.  The United States will finish off this series against Nigeria June 7th in Jacksonville, Florida before hitting Estadio das Dunas against Ghana in the first round of the World Cup.
