Photos from the U.S. WNT's 5-0 win against Guatemala in its second game of the 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championship.

WNT Takes Control of Group A with 5-0 Victory against Guatemala

BRIDGEVIEW, Illinois (Oct. 17, 2014) – The U.S. Women’s National Team moved a step closer to securing a spot in the semifinals of the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship with a 5-0 victory against Guatemala in Group A play at Toyota Park. 

A resurgent USA squad scored four second-half goals. Tobin Heath led the way with two goals, while Carli Lloyd, Megan Rapinoe and center back Whitney Engen each tallied a goal. 

The USA moves to the summit of Group A with a 2-0-0 record. Earlier in the day in Group A action, Trinidad & Tobago defeated Haiti 1-0. At 1-1-0, both Trinidad & Tobago and Haiti are fighting to also move on from group play, while Guatemala has been eliminated with a 0-2-0 record. 

The U.S. wraps up Group A play against Haiti on Monday, Oct. 20, at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. (7:30 p.m. ET; FOX Sports 1). A victory or draw would guarantee the USA first place in the group and a top seed to face the Group B runner-up in the semifinals. The U.S. can also win Group A with a loss against Haiti if it retains superior goal differential. 

Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Tobin Heath (Sydney Leroux), 7th minute: The USA worked the ball around the right flank to defensive back Ali Krieger, who crossed in toward the center of the box. A couple Guatemala players from the team’s five-player back line could not disrupt the pass, and Leroux reached back with her right foot to flick the ball toward the six-yard box. Heath converged and slotted low into the right side for the goal. USA 1, GUA 0 (SEE GOAL) 

USA – Carli Lloyd (Sydney Leroux), 46th minute: Just 30 seconds into the second half, the USA earned a two-goal cushion when Leroux cut back to her right foot from the left flank and crossed to Lloyd making a run toward the far right post. Lloyd rose up over Guatemala’s Kimberly De Leon and headed the ball to the left side of the frame past Alicia Navas. USA 2, GUA 0 (SEE GOAL) 

USA – Tobin Heath (Carli Lloyd), 57th minute: Megan Rapinoe had a line-drive corner kick from the right side that Lloyd volleyed from the left side of the box. The shot possibly was headed on goal, but just to make sure, Heath redirected with a cheeky flick of her left foot and her back to the goal, shooting inside the right post for her second goal of the match. Heath now has 11 international goals in 78 games and three goals this year. USA 3, GUA 0 (SEE GOAL) 

USA – Whitney Engen (Megan Rapinoe), 58th minute: The USA started to pile things on as Rapinoe’s free kick from the left went directly to Engen running in toward the left post. Guatemala’s defense broke down as Engen had a clear path and took advantage of the opportunity with a header inside the left of the frame. The center back scored her second goal of the year and third of her 20-game international career. USA 4, GUA 0 (SEE GOAL) 

USA – Megan Rapinoe, 66th minute: Carli Lloyd’s initial shot at the top of the box was blocked by Guatemala’s Gloria Aguilar, but Rapinoe was at the right place for the rebound. Rapinoe’s curling right-footed shot from 20 yards out struck nothing but net as Alicia Navas had little chance to get to the ball. USA 5, GUA 0 (SEE GOAL) (FINAL) 

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:GUA – Londy Barrios, 36th minute: Carli Lloyd worked the ball down the left side and crossed in toward Alex Morgan at the six-yard box. Barrios quickly got in the pathway and deflected it out for a USA corner kick as Morgan would have had a clear scoring chance at the near left post. 

GUA – Alicia Navas, 41st minute: Megan Rapinoe’s free kick from the right side lined up with both Whitney Engen and Sydney Leroux. Engen just missed getting a flick-header touch, but Leroux was in the way of Rapinoe’s kick and shot toward the goal. However, the ball went directly to Navas, and the Guatemala goalkeeper secured. 

GUA – Alicia Navas, 69th minute: Rapinoe’s shot from the left side was destined for the far right post, and Navas stayed on top of it with the save and did not allow a rebound with Sydney Leroux lurking. 

Milestone Watch:

  • Carli Lloyd now has 52 goals in her career, the most for a WNT player exclusively to play as a midfielder. Lloyd is ninth on the USA’s all-time goal scoring list and is now just one goal behind eighth-place Carin Gabarra (53 goals from 1987-96).
  • Lloyd notched her 29th-career assist and Megan Rapinoe her 28th assist. They rank 14th and 15th, respectively, on the U.S. WNT’s all-time assists list.

WNT vs. Trinidad & Tobago: Highlights - Oct. 15, 2014

The U.S. Women's National Team beat Trinidad & Tobago 1-0 to start out the Women's CONCACAF Championship. A goal from Abby Wambach gave the USA all three points at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan.

WNT Opens 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championship with 1-0 Win against Trinidad & Tobago

KANSAS CITY, Kansas (Oct. 15, 2014) – The U.S. Women’s National Team earned a 1-0 victory against Trinidad & Tobago to open Group A play at the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship at Sporting Park, home of Major League Soccer’s Sporting Kansas City. 

Trinidad & Tobago managed to withstand the USA’s heavy attack with plenty of defenders behind the ball, but the U.S. eventually found the back of the net when all-time leading goal scorer Abby Wambach scored her 171st international goal in the 54th minute. 

After the tournament’s opening day, the USA shares first place in Group A with Haiti as both teams earned 1-0 wins. In Wednesday’s earlier match, a shorthanded Haiti side defeated Guatemala at Sporting Park as Lindsey Zullo scored the game’s only goal. Haiti goalkeeper Cynthia Chery was given a red card early in the first half. 

With the victory against Trinidad & Tobago, the USA moves to an impressive 23-1-0 all-time in Women’s World Cup Qualifying. All eyes are on qualification for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada, and the U.S. is also looking to win its fifth CONCACAF Women’s Championship, having previously won the title in 1991, 1994, 2002 and 2006. The USA hosted the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup and did not have to go through the qualification process heading into that event. 

Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Abby Wambach (Alex Morgan), 54th minute: After dominating the game with heavy possession and numerous scoring chances, the USA finally broke through when Morgan dribbled to her left to elude Trinidad & Tobago goalkeeper Kimika Forbes. From the end line, Morgan crossed to Wambach perched at the edge of the six-yard box, and Wambach headed the ball past defender Lauryn Hutchinson and into the right side of the frame for her eighth goal this year and a one-goal U.S. advantage over Trinidad & Tobago. USA 1, TRI 0 (FINAL) 

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
TRI – Kimika Forbes, 14th minute: The USA was lurking in the final third with frequent set piece opportunities. Megan Rapinoe delivered a corner kick from the right side and connected well with the onrushing Christen Press, who headed the ball toward the left side of the frame. Forbes parried the well-struck shot straight up and was able to collect. 

TRI – Kimika Forbes, 38th and 39th minutes: In the 38th minute, Carli Lloyd unleashed a shot from 21 yards out after a quick give-and-go with Megan Rapinoe, but Forbes denied Lloyd with a diving save to her right at the near post to surrender a corner kick. In the following sequence, Rapinoe’s corner from the left side bounced around the box, and Abby Wambach, with her back to goal, attempted a flicked header. Wambach put the shot on frame, but it lacked pace and power as Forbes collected her third save. 

TRI – Kimika Forbes, 52nd minute: Several minutes after pushing a high-percentage header chance wide right of the net, Abby Wambach was back on the attack when Christen Press set her up inside the top of the box. From 14 yards out, Wambach tried to chip the ball over Forbes, but the Trinidad & Tobago goalkeeper closed the distance and made the right-handed save. 

TRI – Kimika Forbes, 62nd and 81st minutes: Though the shots on goal were not in succession, Forbes had a knack for coming up with big saves against Rapinoe. Rapinoe’s 62nd-minute attempt from the left side was stopped by the Trinidad & Tobago goalkeeper, and then her low, 81st-minute drive was smothered at the near right post. 

TRI – Kimika Forbes, 90th+2 minute: USA second-half sub Sydney Leroux got behind Trinidad & Tobago’s defense with a run down the left side. Leroux shot right-footed, hoping to slot the ball to the far right post, but Forbes made the save with her left leg.

Milestone Watch:

  • Abby Wambach, the U.S. WNT’s all-time leader with 171 goals, recorded her 11th-career goal in Women’s World Cup Qualifying, tying her for fourth on the USA’s all-time list with Joy Fawcett.
  • U.S. captain Christie Rampone appeared in her 298th match as she nears the 300-game milestone. She is second only to Kristine Lilly (352 caps from 1987-2010) in all-time WNT caps.
  • With her 177th cap, Carli Lloyd moved past Shannon MacMillan (176 games from 1993-2005) for 12th on the WNT’s all-time caps list.
  • Abby Wambach and second-half sub Heather O’Reilly have now appeared in four different CONCACAF Women’s Championships (2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014). That mark ties for second place among U.S. WNT players, trailing only Lilly’s five (1991, 1994, 2002, 2006, 2010).
  • Hope Solo added to her U.S. WNT record with her 74th-career shutout, making one save on the night.

  • U.S. head coach Jill Ellis’ starting lineup included a defensive group featuring goalkeeper Hope Solo, right back Ali Krieger, left back Meghan Klingenberg and center backs Becky Sauerbrunn and Christie Rampone. Rampone wore the captain’s armband.

  • Sydney Leroux replaced Press in the 61st minute.
  • Heather O’Reilly entered the game in the 77th minute for Wambach, who departed with well-earned chants from the USA fan base.
  • Ellis’ final sub was Amy Rodriguez, who replaced Rapinoe in the 87th minute.
  • Nine of the USA starters had played in a previous World Cup qualifier heading into the match, while Klingenberg and Press made their first appearances and starts in the CONCACAF Women’s Championship.
  • Wambach is the USA’s active leader in World Cup qualifying appearances, earning her 11th cap. Rampone, Lloyd and O’Reilly earned their 10th caps in the qualifying tournament.
