Alex Morgan scored in the 72nd minute to give the United States a 1-1 draw in the Kirin Cup with Japan, the team that beat them in the final of the Women's World Cup last year.

Yukari Kinga beat goalkeeper Hope Solo from close in to give Japan a 1-0 lead in the 32nd.

The United States created opportunities on the right wing, but Japan's superior speed was dangerous on the counterattack.
