Under 23's Tie China

In their first of two matches against the Chinese Under 23 team, the US team drew their hosts 0-0 in Changsha, China. The Chinese, who have already qualified, apparently fielded what could be their team for the Olympics, as they had their 3 overage players already on the team for this game. For those that don't know the rules, the Olympics is an under 23 tournament. Although at the games, teams are allowed to have 3 overage players on their roster.

Wizards midfielder/defender Michael Harrington started the game on the bench, but came on for the last 10 minutes, when he replaced Arturo Alvarez. The other Wizards player on the roster, Aaron Hohlbein, was one of 3 players that spent the entire game on the bench. The two teams will meet again on Sunday in Guangzhou for the second game of the US's two game tour.
