U.S. WNT Continues Victory Tour with 7-2 Win in Chattanooga

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee (Aug. 19, 2015) – The World Cup Champion U.S. Women’s National Team continued its Victory Tour with a 7-2 win against Costa Rica in front of a record crowd of 20,535 at Finley Stadium. The crowd was the largest for a stand-alone WNT friendly in the southeastern region of the United States.

Members of the military led the team out on the field and a moment of silence was observed before kickoff in memory of the tragedy that took place on July 17 when a gunman opened fire on two military sites in Chattanooga, killing five servicemen. During the game the WNT players wore black armbands in memory of the victims.

The U.S. WNT will be auctioning off their autographed game-worn jerseys on ussoccer.com to raise money for the families of the victims. More information on the start of the auction will be provided soon.

After the U.S. took an early 2-0 lead behind goals from Carli Lloyd and Heather O’Reilly, the match was delayed for 83 minutes due to lightning. After returning to the field, the U.S. continued their dominance with additional goals from Abby Wambach, O’Reilly, Alex Morgan and Amy Rodriguez. The WNT also benefited from an own goal, but Costa Rica was able to find the back of the net twice in second half for their first ever goals against the U.S. in 12 meetings.   

The U.S. players will now return to their NWSL clubs for the stretch run of the season and continues its Victory Tour with a pair of matches against Australia in September, at Ford Field in Detroit on Sept. 17 and at Legion Field in Birmingham, Alabama on Sept. 20. Tickets are going fast with 30,000 already sold in Detroit and 27,000 in Birmingham. For more information on tickets, click here.

Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Carli Lloyd, 7th minute:
Lloyd’s spectacular blast from 31 yards off a direct free kick deflected off a Costa Rican defender in the wall, hit the bottom of the crossbar at the upper left corner and bounced down into the goal to give the WNT an early lead. USA 1, CRC 0 SEE GOAL

USA – Heather O’Reilly, 13th minute: Carli Lloyd received a pass at the top of the box, spun towards goal and blasted a shot on frame. The Costa Rican goalkeeper responded with a tremendous diving save, but couldn’t hold the ball and Heather O’Reilly followed up to finish the rebound and double the WNT lead. USA 2, CRC 0 SEE GOAL

USA – Abby Wambach (Lori Chalupny), 18th minute: Carli Lloyd started the run down the right side and as she approached the end line sent a cross over to Lori Chalupny, who was positioned in the left side of the box. With the defense closing in, Chalupny sent the ball back across to Abby Wambach, who one-timed it home with her left foot. USA 3, CRC 0

USA – Carli Lloyd (Megan Rapinoe), 20th minute: The goal came off a corner kick from Megan Rapinoe. Rapinoe whipped in a cross and Lloyd knifed though the defense, leapt into the air and volleyed home from close range for her second goal of the game. USA 4, CRC 0

USA – Heather O’Reilly (Abby Wambach), 23rd minute: Abby Wambach, who just five minutes before had scored a goal of her own, dribbled powerfully down the left side. O’Reilly made a run to the near post, and Wambach, who has been the recipient of many O’Reilly crosses in the past, was the distributor this time around. O’Reilly met Wambach’s cross with her a powerful header high into the net for her second score of the game. USA 5, CRC 0

USA – Katherine Alvarado (Own Goal), 31st minute: Off another corner Lloyd made a run into the box and Alvarado was grabber her the whole time. The driven ball skipped through traffic inside the penalty box, bounced off her shin and skipped into the back of the net. USA 6, CRC 0

CRC – Cristin Granados (Carolina Venegas), 56th minute: Carolina Venegas made a great move to get around Tobin Heath near the end line and then threaded a ball back to Granados in the seam. With a first-time shot she pushed it past a diving Hope Solo from close range. USA 6, CRC 1

CRC – Karla Villalobos (Mariana Benavides), 69th minute: Mariana Benavides got a long ball up and through the U.S. defense to Villalobos who took a few controlling dribbles near the top of the box and finessed a bending ball over Naeher and into the upper right corner. USA 6, CRC 2

USA – Alex Morgan (Amy Rodriguez), 81st minute: After substitute goalkeeper Yolian Sala made a great kick save, Costa Rica poorly cleared the ball away and it found Amy Rodriguez on the right side of the box. Rodriguez took a great touch to beat a defender and sent a perfect back post cross to Alex Morgan who chested it into the net for the seventh score of the game. USA 7, CRC 2 SEE GOAL

Next on the Schedule: The WNT continues the 2015 Victory Tour with a stop in Detroit on Sept. 17 to take on Australia at Ford Field, where more than 30,000 tickets have already been sold.

  • Wambach extended her record as the world’s all-time leading goal scorer, notching the 184th goal of her career.
  • Heather O’Reilly’s brace pushed her career scoring total to 45 goals. She has scored two goals in each of the last two games and has now tallied four multi-goal games in her career.

She debuted for the USA at the age of 17 in 2001 and has won a U-19 Women's World Cup title, an Olympic gold medal and a Women's World Cup title.
  • The match was the second for the WNT at Finley Stadium and with the win the team improved to 2-0-0 in the Chattanooga.

PREVIEW: MNT Closes Camp Against Defending Copa America Champions Chile

CHICAGO (March 25, 2019) – After earning a 1-0 victory against Ecuador in Orlando, the U.S. Men’s National Team closes the spring international window when it faces two-time defending Copa América champions Chile on Tuesday, March 26 at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston.

Coverage of USA-Chile begins at 7:55 p.m. ET on ESPN2, UniMás and UDN. Fans can also follow along via U.S. Soccer’s official Facebook, Twitter (@USMNT) and Instagram (@USMNT) accounts.

USA DETAILED ROSTER BY POSITION (Club; Caps/Goals):

ZARDES POWERS MNT PAST ECUADOR
The U.S. Men’s National Team won its third straight match since MNT head coach Gregg Berhalter took the reins, using a Gyasi Zardes 81st-minute strike to earn a 1-0 victory against Ecuador on Thursday, March 21 at Orlando City Stadium in Orlando, Fla. The MNT controlled possession through much of the match, while the back line of Tyler Adams, John Brooks, Aaron Long and Tim Ream limited La Tricolor to just one shot during the course of the 90 minutes.

After coming close to a goal a few times during the first half, the MNT found the lone marker through Zardes, whose shot from 22 yards out took a wicked deflection off Ecuador defender Robert Arboleda and looped over ‘keeper Alexander Domínguez. The goal was the seventh of Zardes’ international career and first since scoring the game-winner against Ecuador in a 2-1 victory during the Copa America Centenario quarterfinal on June 16, 2016 in Seattle.

CHANGES EXPECTED FOR CHILE
Utilizing the March camp to make evaluations for this summer’s Concacaf Gold Cup roster, MNT head coach Gregg Berhalter said post-game on Thursday that he would make several changes to the starting XI that will face Chile on Tuesday in Houston.

Twenty-four players have appeared for the MNT during the three matches this year, with 20 starting.

MILESTONE WATCH: GREGG BERHALTER
With Thursday’s result against Ecuador, Gregg Berhalter followed Bob Bradley as just the second MNT head coach to win each of his first three matches. Along with remaining unbeaten (3-0-0), the USA has not conceded a goal in the three matches under Berhalter. The record for most consecutive shutouts at the beginning of an MNT coaching tenure is held by Alkis Panagoulias, who guided the team to four straight clean sheets from 1983-84.

With a win Tuesday against Chile, Berhalter would set a new mark for most wins at the beginning of an MNT coaching tenure, while a clean sheet would tie him with the milestone set by Panagoulias in the 1980s.

ADAMS, McKENNIE RETURN TO BUNDESLIGA CLUBS
On Friday, midfielder Tyler Adams was released back to RB Leipzig in an arrangement that was made prior to the opening of the international window.  

After exiting Thursday’s match with an injury, midfielder Weston McKennie remained with the MNT through the weekend for further evaluation and was diagnosed with a moderate to high degree left ankle sprain. He returned to Schalke on Monday where he will continue to his care and is expected to miss several weeks.

Neither player will be replaced on the roster, which now stands at 22 players heading into Tuesday’s match against Chile.

PREPARING TO PREPARE
One of the challenges for any National Team coach is impacting their players during the long periods between matches. Now add in a new coach and a new game model, and addressing that gap becomes more important. The coaching staff has spent the last six weeks attempting to do just that.

“We have laid a lot of ground work in preparation for this camp,” Berhalter said. “It entailed meeting with the players, video conferences with the players, conversations with the players, evaluating their games … it’s a very important time period to keep working and be productive. We’ve used that time to meet the players and communicate what we’re looking to do in the next camp.”

U.S. U-23 MNT Battles Netherlands to Scoreless Draw in Spain

SAN PEDRO DEL PINATAR, Spain (March 24, 2019)—The U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team drew Netherlands 0-0 to close out its first training camp of the 2020 Olympic cycle.

The USA put together a stronger performance than in its first match, a 2-0 loss to Egypt on March 22, producing some dangerous attacking chances while dictating more of the game’s rhythm. The U.S. got off to a fast start in the early-going and as the half wore on, the U-23s strung together several nice offensive sequences.

Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Paes saved a hard-hit Keaton Parks shot after some quality build-up in the 31st minute and Antonee Robinson used a nice exchange with Djordje Mihailovic to free himself on the run towards goal in the 32nd, but his shot rolled just wide. The midfield teed up a number of solid services for center forward Josh Sargent, while Jeremy Ebobisse and Tim Weah also created danger on the wings.

The U.S. defense held strong against a slew of threatening entry passes and free kicks from the Dutch. U.S. captain Cameron Carter-Vickers anchored the back line, while Robinson and Julian Araujo threatened in the attack from their outside back spots. 

The U-23s created one of their most promising opportunities off a free kick just outside the 18-yard box in the 68th minute. Mihailovic launched a great ball into the box and Ebobisse put a header on goal, but Paes dove to his left to make the stop.

Nineteen of the 23 players on the roster appeared in the match, allowing new U-23 MNT head coach Jason Kreis another opportunity to evaluate players in game action. Twenty-two of 23 players appeared in the U-23 MNT’s game against Egypt on March 22.
