USWNT Rewind: Trophies in England, Swedish Title in Sight

Club play resumed following the October FIFA window and began in impressive fashion for the U.S. Women’s National Team contingent abroad. Samantha Mewis and Rose Lavelle captured the FA Cup with Manchester City while Emily Sonnett and Koppabergs/Göteborg FC moved one step closer to clinching the league title in Sweden’s Damallsvenskan.


The action kicked off Sunday morning in Sweden where Göteborg beat Växajö, 3-0. Sonnett played the full 90 minutes in the shutout victory. With a four-point lead in the league standings and only two match days remaining, Göteborg could clinch the title outright on Saturday when they take on fourth-place Linköping.

In England, Lavelle and Mewis helped Manchester City win the Women’s FA Cup for the second consecutive year and third time overall with a 3-1 victory over Everton in extra time at the iconic Wembley Stadium. Mewis scored the game’s opening goal in the 39th minute on a towering header, becoming the second USWNT player and third U.S. international overall to score in an FA Cup Final. She joins her USA teammate Carli Lloyd, who scored in Manchester City’s 4-1 FA Cup final win in 2017, and U.S. Men’s National Team standout Christian Pulisic, who tallied the opening goal for Chelsea in the 2020 Men’s FA Cup Final.

 

Lavelle and Mewis become the third and fourth American women to lift the FA Cup, which is in its 50th year of competition. Two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champion Carli Lloyd lifted the trophy with Manchester City in 2017 while U.S. youth international Tracy Osborn Nelson won the FA Cup with Millwall in 1997.
