We knew this would be an intense match, but we couldn’t have predicted the outcome. The match started off with a horrifying clash of the heads of Morgan Brian and Alexandra Popp. Morgan in particular looked ill after the big clash, but went out there anyway and continued to play, despite her weakened condition. There was a ton of back and forth between both teams during the rest of the first half, and both teams failed to score, though the U.S. came close multiple times.
The speed picked up even more during the second half with the U.S. going headstrong. Their star midfielder Carli Lloyd blasted it home during her penalty kick, and was the star again when she passed the ball to Kelley O’Hara who shot it right in the goal, giving the U.S. a 2-0 victory.
