USWNT tried new lineup gets a similar result as they dominate Chile, officially makes it into the knockout round
The United States officially secure a place as the most effective team in its World Cup group today. USNWT tried new lineup on Sunday’s game against Chile to show that also its junior varsity is among the very best on the planet.
In her first start this World Cup, Carli Lloyd needed just over 10 mins to establish a record by scoring in her sixth consecutive World Cup game. She after that established another record when, at age 36, she ended up being the oldest player to score two objectives in a World Cup game.
And if the U.S. did not overdo the objectives in the second half this moment, it was more due to Christiane Endler’s heroics in goal than because the U.S. took its foot off the gas, but the efficiency was rarely less detailed.
Julie Ertz racked up the other American goal in the opening half, the first World Cup goal for a player that started as a defender in the 2015 competition.
In spite of wholesale modifications to the starting lineup that directed Thailand, the U.S. beat Chile 3-0 to continue to be in addition to Group F and breakthrough to the knockout round. Both the UNITED STATE and also Sweden go into the final round of group play with six factors from 2 success; however, the Americans have a much superior goal difference.
On a day when the American existence in Paris made the red, white and also blue of Parc des Princes, generally home to Paris Saint-Germain, an ideal home far from home with a crowd of 45,594, the UNITED STATE looked at ease from the start.
Just a missed out on penalty, awarded after VAR treatment, slowed Lloyd.
