WNT Defeats Haiti 6-0 to Earn Top Seed in Semifinals of 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championship

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 20, 2014) – The U.S. Women’s National Team is one victory away from booking its spot in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. 

USA all-time goal scoring leader Abby Wambach scored two goals and the United States soundly defeated Haiti 6-0 at RFK Stadium to earn first place in Group A and a top seed heading into the semifinals of the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship. The U.S. will face the Group B runner-up on Friday, Oct. 24, at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. 

Carli Lloyd, Christen Press and Morgan Brian each scored a goal, and defender Meghan Klingenberg added her first international tally. 

The top three teams in the CONCACAF Women’s Championship earn automatic qualification to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, while the fourth-place team enters a two-leg playoff against South American third-place finisher Ecuador for the final berth.

The USA’s semifinal opponent will be determined Tuesday with the conclusion of Group B play, and the U.S. WNT will take on the runner-up from that group. Costa Rica (2-0-0, 6 points) currently holds the top spot, followed by Mexico (1-1-0, 3 points) and Jamaica (1-1-0, 3 points). Martinique (0-0-2, 0 points) is in last place, but could not qualify for the semifinal stage anyway as it is not recognized as a FIFA country. 

Trinidad & Tobago was the Group A runner-up, holding off Guatemala for a 2-1 win earlier Monday to conclude the group stage with a 2-1-0 record and six points. Trinidad & Tobago will face the Group B winner in the semifinals. 

Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Carli Lloyd, 9th minute: USA left back Meghan Klingenberg crossed the ball to the top of the six-yard box, where Abby Wambach and Haiti goalkeeper Geralda Saintilus met for a 50-50 challenge. Saintilus stepped in front of the pass and batted it away; however, she was unable to clear the ball out of the box and was well off her line when the USA retained possession. Lloyd collected the deflection, chested down to her foot and slotted into the net for her second goal of the tournament. USA 1, HAI 0

USA – Abby Wambach, 38th minute: Christen Press cut to her left foot and lofted a dangerous ball into the middle of the box with Wambach running straight at the goal. Haiti defender Roselord Borgella stretched with her right foot to intercept, but instead of clearing the danger, the deflection stayed in line with Wambach’s run. The all-time goal scoring leader headed the ball into the net without breaking stride to push the USA lead to two heading into halftime. USA 2, HAI 0 

USA – Meghan Klingenberg, 57th minute: Second-half sub Heather O’Reilly brought some high energy from the right flank and had ample space on this sequence to cross into the box. Haiti’s defense cleared the ball about eight yards above the box, where Klingenberg stepped up with a laser of a right-footed shot that was out of the reach of Saintilus and into the right side of the frame. It was Klingenberg’s first goal in 19 international games. USA 3, HAI 0 

USA – Abby Wambach (Carli Lloyd), 60th minute: Lloyd won the header at the top of the box and her pass found its way between two Haiti defenders at the edge of the six, where Wambach volleyed it home with her right foot past Saintilus. With her brace, Wambach now leads the U.S. WNT with 10 goals in 2014. USA 4, HAI 0 

USA – Christen Press, 65th minute: A couple minutes after they entered the match Sydney Leroux and Morgan Brian created the USA’s next scoring chance, with Leroux crossing from the right side and Brian redirecting the ball to the top of the six-yard box. Haiti’s defense once again got a deflection but could not clear, and Press rushed a left-footed shot into the left side of the goal. USA 5, HAI 0 

USA – Morgan Brian (Christen Press), 82nd minute: Press dribbled to the end line to elude her defender and crossed toward the penalty spot, where Brian shot from about eight yards out into the right side of the frame. It was Brian’s third goal in 14 appearances. USA 6, HAI 0 (FINAL) (Highlights)

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
HAI – Geralda Saintilus, 5th minute: Just several minutes after Carli Lloyd saw a goal disallowed because of an offside call, the USA attacked again with veteran striker Abby Wambach threatening the net. Wambach struck left-footed from the left side of the box, searching for the far right post. Saintilus secured the save on the low attempt and did not allow a rebound to keep the match scoreless in the early stages. 

USA – Whitney Engen, 33rd minute: The USA had a bad giveaway in midfield that opened a window for Haiti. Marie Jean Pierre collected the loose ball and rushed toward the net. The U.S. WNT’s back line recovered and Engen blocked Jean Pierre’s shot attempt a couple yards outside the area. 

HAI – Geralda Saintilus, 72nd and 74th minutes: In the first of these sequences, Sydney Leroux nearly had a highlight reel effort when she attempted a diving header on Heather O’Reilly’s cross from the right. Though Leroux missed on the header, the ball fell to her between a pair of Haiti defenders and Leroux managed to get a left-footed shot off, only to have Saintilus come away with the save. Two minutes later, O’Reilly threatened the net, and her attempt deflected off of a defender and was headed to the right side of the frame. Saintilus dove to her left to again limit the damage of the USA’s heavy attack.

Milestone Watch:

  • Abby Wambach added to her all-time goal scoring record, notching goals No. 172 and 173 of her 226-game international career.
  • Wambach scored her 13th and 14th goals in World Cup qualifying, passing Mia Hamm (12) for second place on the USA’s all-time list. Michelle Akers holds the U.S. WNT record with 17 goals in the CONCACAF Women’s Championship.
  • Wambach made her 12th appearance in a World Cup qualifying match, which ties her with Julie Foudy and Hamm for second on the U.S. WNT’s all-time list. Kristine Lilly is the USA’s all-time leader with 17 games in the CONCACAF Women’s Championship.
  • Carli Lloyd scored the 53rd goal of her career, tying Carin Gabarra (53 goals from 1987-96) for eighth-place on the U.S. WNT all-time goal scoring list. Lloyd is the WNT’s top scorer among players who have exclusively played as midfielders.

Additional Notes:

  • The USA is now 13-2-3 in 2014.
  • The U.S. WNT is 4-0-0 all-time against Haiti. The USA has outscored Haiti 29-0 in its four meetings.
  • U.S. head coach Jill Ellis made five changes to her starting lineup following the team’s 5-0 victory against Guatemala. Three changes were on the defensive side of the ball, including the first start of the tournament for goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris. Harris earned her fourth-career cap and her second of 2014.
  • The back line included two returning starters in left back Meghan Klingenberg and center back Whitney Engen. Kelley O’Hara got the call ahead of Ali Krieger at right back, and center back and team captain Christie Rampone returned to the starting lineup after sitting out the Guatemala match. Rampone is now one cap away from 300 for her career.
  • The USA’s midfield remained unchanged from the Guatemala game with returning starters Lauren Holiday, Carli Lloyd and Megan Rapinoe.
  • The front three of the USA’s 4-3-3 formation included returning starter Tobin Heath, fresh off her two-goal effort against Guatemala, along with Abby Wambach and Christen Press. Wambach had started and scored the lone goal in the USA’s 1-0 win against Trinidad & Tobago and sat out the Guatemala game. Press was a first-half sub for Alex Morgan when she injured her ankle against Guatemala.
  • Heather O’Reilly entered the game to start the second half, replacing Rapinoe.
  • After the USA pushed its lead to four goals, Ellis utilized her final two subs with Sydney Leroux replacing Wambach in the 62nd minute and Morgan Brian entering for Heath in the 63rd minute. Brian made her first appearance in the tournament.
  • The USA could have added to its lead on several occasions, the most noteworthy being Sydney Leroux’s 80th-minute shot ricocheting off the right post.
  • Press is now the only USA player to have made an appearance in all 18 games this year.
  • Harris earned her first-career clean sheet in four appearances.
  • The U.S. WNT is now 88-8-13 in the 109 games that Rampone has been the team captain.

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.
  • Hope Solo added to her U.S. WNT record with her 75th-career shutout.

The returning defensive starters included Hope Solo in goal, right back Ali Krieger, left back Meghan Klingenberg and center back Becky Sauerbrunn.

  • The midfield included returning starters Lauren Holiday and team captain Carli Lloyd, while Megan Rapinoe dropped back to the midfield against Guatemala. She had been in the front line in the last match.
  • Lloyd wore the armband for the first time since the USA’s 2-2 draw against France on June 19 in East Hartford, Connecticut.
  • The USA’s three starting forwards in their 4-3-3 formation featured returning starter Alex Morgan, and Sydney Leroux and Tobin Heath made their first starts, while Abby Wambach and Christen Press came off the bench.
  • In the 37th minute, Morgan collided with Guatemala defender Londy Barrios in a shoulder-to-shoulder sequence in Guatemala’s defensive third. Morgan injured her left ankle, attempted to put pressure on it on the sidelines but was eventually forced to exit the game. She was ruled to have sprained her ankle, and Press replaced her in the 42nd minute.
  • The USA thought it had a two-goal lead heading into the halftime break when Meghan Klingenberg crossed from the left and connected perfectly with Press in the 45th minute. However, on the Press header, she was ruled to have fouled Marilyn Rivera and the goal was called back.
  • Kelley O’Hara was brought into the game for Krieger to open the second half.
  • In the 68th minute, Ellis used her final sub with Amy Rodriguez entering for Klingenberg. Heath dropped back to Klingenberg’s spot at left back.
