A History of the U.S. WNT at the Olympic Games

The U.S. Women’s National Team is by far the most successful country in Olympic women’s soccer history, having won four gold medals and one silver medal in the five competitions that have held so far. The USA is 23-2-3 all-time in the Olympics, having lost only in the gold medal game in 2000 and the opening match of the 2008 tournament, both to Norway.

In 2016 in Brazil, the USA will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its first gold medal which came in the first Olympic Games in which women’s soccer was contested. The Olympic Women’s Soccer Tournament was staged as an eight-team competition in 1996 and 2000 before moving to a 10-team tournament in 2004 – and then a 12 team-tournament for the past two Olympic Games.

1996: 4-0-1 – Leading scorers: Tisha Venturini, Shannon MacMillan, Tiffeny Milbrett – 2 goals each
The USA claimed that inaugural gold medal at the Atlanta Games in 1996 with a 2-1 victory against China on goals from former college teammates Shannon MacMillan and Tiffeny Milbrett in front of 76,481 fans in Athens, Ga. The attendance mark, which at the time was the largest crowd to ever watch a women’s athletic event, set the stage for the incredibly successful Women’s World Cup staged in the U.S. in 1999. The gold medal victory culminated an impressive five-game undefeated run through the tournament in which the U.S. Women played in front of packed crowds.

2000: 3-1-1 -- Leading scorers: Tiffeny Milbrett – 3 goals; Mia Hamm – 2 goals
As they did in 1996, the U.S. Women had a strong run to the medal stand in 2000, winning the “Group of Death” that included China, Nigeria and Norway. In the gold medal match in Sydney, Australia, the USA put together an excellent performance as Milbrett scored both goals, including a last gasp equalizer in the second minute of second half stoppage time, but a spirited Norway side produced a controversial “golden goal” in overtime to win the gold. Norway scored its three goals on just three shots on goal in the thrilling 3-2 triumph.

2004: 5-0-1 – Leading scorers: Abby Wambach – 4 goals; Kristine Lilly – 3 goals; Mia Hamm – 2 goals
The 2004 Athens Games were a fitting end for a number of U.S. veterans, including Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy and Joy Fawcett, who left the sport as they came into it: as champions. The never-say-die team won both its semifinal and final matches in overtime, courtesy of a Heather O’Reilly strike against Germany and an Abby Wambach header against Brazil to claim the gold.

2008: 5-1-0 – Angela Hucles – 4 goals; Carli Lloyd, Heather O’Reilly – 2 goals each
Four years later, the U.S. came into the Olympics without Wambach, the team’s top scorer who broke her leg in the final preparation match. With Pia Sundhage leading the team into her first world championship as head coach, a new class of players including Hope Solo, Carli Lloyd and surprise leading scorer Angela Hucles led the team to gold with a 1-0 victory over Brazil. Lloyd scored the dramatic overtime game-winner in the 96th minute.

2012: 6-0-0 – Abby Wambach – 5 goals; Carli Lloyd – 4 goals; Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe – 3 goals each
In 2012, the U.S. Women went undefeated at 6-0-0 for the first time at an Olympic tournament and Sundhage ended her time with the USA as a two-time Olympic champion. The USA’s run included a thrilling come-from-behind semifinal victory against Canada, with Alex Morgan scoring the game-winner in the 123rd minute in what was the latest goal scored in a FIFA competition. In the gold medal match, Lloyd scored both goals in the 2-1 victory against Japan and the USA became the first country – in either men’s or women’s soccer – to earn a fourth gold while avenging its defeat in the Women’s World Cup Final a year earlier. The match was watched by more than 80,000 fans at the famed Wembley Stadium in London.

It’s a story almost too amazing to be true. Around 1920, a Scottish immigrant named William Dowie traveled to the New World in search of the American dream, leaving behind a 10-year career as a goalkeeper for Raith Rovers, a small club founded in 1883 in Kirkcaldy, about 45 miles east of Glasgow.

U.S. Women’s National Team Defeats France 4-2 to Open Group G Play at 2012 Olympics

  •     Carli Lloyd Tallies Game-Winner as USA Rebounds from Early Deficit with Four Unanswered Goals
  •     Alex Morgan Scores Twice in First Olympic Appearance; Abby Wambach Contributes 139th Career Goal
  •     USA Will Continue Group G Play Against Colombia on July 28 in Glasgow, Scotland, in a Match Broadcast on NBC Sports Network at Noon ET
GLASGOW, Scotland (July 25, 2012) – The U.S. Women’s National Team earned a huge three points with a 4-2 victory against France in the first Group G match for both countries at the 2012 Olympics.

After falling behind 2-0 after just 13 minutes when France struck for two goals in a three-minute span, Abby Wambach started the USA’s historic comeback with a header off a corner kick in the 18th minute. Alex Morgan pulled the teams equal in the 31st minute and the wild first match of the Olympic tournament went into halftime tied at 2-2.

Carli Lloyd, who had replaced the injured Shannon Boxx just 17 minutes into the game, tallied the winning goal on a brilliant strike from distance in the 55th minute and Morgan finished off the match with her second goal in the 66th.

Lloyd’s goal was her second straight Olympic game-winner as she had the lone score in the 2008 Olympic gold medal game as the USA defeated Brazil 1-0 in overtime.

The USA will continue group play against Colombia at Hampden Park on July 28 (5 p.m. local / 12 p.m. ET) and finish the first round against Korea DPR on July 31 (5:15 p.m. local / 12:15 p.m. ET) at the legendary Old Trafford in Manchester, home to Manchester United. Both games are televised live on the NBC Sports Network.

“You can’t look at only the first minutes or the last minutes, it’s the whole game,” said U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage. “If you look at the whole game, I’m really proud of the team. Scoring four goals, and goals that were fantastic, that’s one way to prove that you are ready (for the Olympics). It was a little shaky beginning, but I think it was amazing the way we came back and responded to those two goals.”

France put together what seemed like a dream start with Gaëtane Thiney giving her country the lead in the 12th minute after collecting a headed clearance and dribbling up the middle at the U.S. net before unleashing a vicious drive from 25 yards that sailed into the upper right corner. U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo got a slight glove on the powerful shot, but couldn’t turn it away.

Just two minutes later, France took a corner kick from the left side and the Americans could not clear. The ball bounced around the box as the players from both teams scrambled for control. The maelstrom ended poorly for the U.S. as the ball rolled perfectly back to Marie-Laure Delie who smashed her shot into the right side of the net for a 2-0 lead.

The USA had started the game off well, but after allowing the two goals, it seemed things were going from bad to worse for the Americans who were forced to make an early substitution after midfielder Shannon Boxx suffered a hamstring injury in the 17th minute and was replaced by Lloyd. It actually turned out to be a turning point in the match.

Shortly after the change, the USA got one foot back into the match as Wambach, who missed the 2008 Olympics with a broken leg, tallied her first Olympic goal since the 2004 Athens gold medal game, heading home a Megan Rapinoe corner kick in the 19th minute. Lanky France center-back Wendie Renard, who stands 6-foot-1, had the assignment of marking the USA’s 5-11 striker, but Wambach got the better of the match-up on this service, losing her mark before rising above two French defenders to athletically loop a header from the right side into the far left corner.

The Americans now had the momentum and the prodigious right leg of Solo set up the equalizer in the 32ndminute. Solo sent a kick deep into the French defensive third where it flew over the leaping Wambach and her mark, and skipped through to the streaking Morgan. Morgan then held off defender Ophelie Meilleroux and lifted her left-footed shot over onrushing France goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi and into the net. The strike was Morgan’s first Olympic goal after scoring twice in the Women’s World Cup last summer.

The USA might have gone into halftime a goal up after Meilleroux, the French captain, cut Morgan down from behind in the penalty box with one minute left to play before the break. Despite the pro-U.S. crowd and the U.S. players calling for a penalty, Japanese referee Sachiko Yamagishi let play go on. Still, the Americans now had the momentum.

France tried to stem that momentum with two subs at halftime, replacing Meilleroux with Laura Georges and taking off star midfielder Louisa Necib for Eugénie Le Sommer, but it was the Americans who would have the majority of the good chances in the final 45 minutes.

The U.S. started the second half with a couple of promising scoring opportunities, including Wambach’s 50th-minute shot attempt off a Rapinoe’s corner kick that was cleared off the goal line by France’s Elise Bussaglia.

Lloyd gave the USA the lead in the 56th minute with a rocket shot from 25 yards out that screamed into the left side of the net almost before Bouhaddi could make a move toward it. Lloyd had received a ball in midfield and took a few dribbles to free herself for the winning shot, which she then celebrated by running to the U.S. bench and executing a perfect knee slide into a gaggle of teammates.

In the 60th minute, Morgan was again denied a penalty after she was bodied to the ground inside the penalty area after getting a step on Sonia Bompastor in the right side of the penalty area, but she would seal the game anyway in the 66th minute.

The goal sequence started when Rapinoe sent a ball from the center of the field to the left side, and when a French defender slipped, allowing the ball to skip through to the sprinting Tobin Heath.

Heath found herself with quite a bit of room behind the France defense and took a perfect angle to the goal. She had the time and space to dribble all the way to the end line, where she fell victim to a crunching challenge, but not before she slipped a pass across the face of the goal. Wambach was crashing, and although she didn’t get a piece of the ball, occupied a defender and the goalkeeper, allowing the ball to roll to the far post where Morgan simply tapped it in from a yard out. It was Morgan’s team-leading 19th goal of the year.

The two second half goals took the fight out of France, and although the talented French tried to pull a goal back, the U.S. defense led by Christie Rampone and Rachel Buehler, closed off the back and shut down almost every French attack in the final 45 minutes. Solo ruled her penalty area after the two early goals, making several brave catches in traffic and controlling the tempo of the match with her distribution and kicking game. She also made a nice grab off a header from Élodie Thomis in the first half.

Additional Notes:
  • Five players made their Olympic debuts on Wednesday: left back Kelley O'Hara, right back Amy LePeilbet, midfielder Megan Rapinoe and forwards Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux.
  • Six players in Sundhage's starting 11 vs. France were making their first start in the Olympics: debutantes O'Hara, LePeilbet, Rapinoe and Morgan as well as 2008 veterans Tobin Heath and Lauren Cheney, who played only from the substitutes bench four years ago.
  • Leroux, the USA’s youngest player, came into the game in for Megan Rapinoe in the 84th minute.
  • Hope Solo’s assist on Morgan’s first goal against France is the first international assist of her career since debuting for the team in 2000.
  • Abby Wambach now has 139 career goals and five career Olympic goals.
  • Carli Lloyd now has three career Olympic goals.
  • Lloyd has seven career goals coming off the bench. This was her first goal off the bench since Oct. 17, 2007 vs. Mexico.
  • Alex Morgan’s two goals upped her total to 19 in 2012, tying her for the sixth best yearly total in U.S. history with April Heinrichs, Mia Hamm and Cindy Parlow.
  • The USA took just eight shots in the hard-fought match (to France’s nine), but scored on half of them and putting seven on goal.
  • This was the first time in Olympic play that the U.S. Women’s National Team had come back to win from a two goal deficit. In fact, in the Olympics, the USA has allowed more than one goal only three times – a 2-3 loss to Norway in 2000 gold medal game, a 0-2 loss to Norway in opening game of 2008 Olympics and a 4-2 victory over Japan in the semifinal match in 2008 (the USA was down 1-0 before scoring four straight).
  • Amy Rodriguez played the final 15 minutes in place of Alex Morgan as U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage used all three of her allowed substitutes.
