USWNT: Kirin Challenge Cup Results

(Note: I’ll have an in-depth review/analysis of the two matches, sometime next week.)

The United States Women’s National Team, finished the Women’s Kirin Challenge Cup earlier than expected, today, as their match against Brazil was moved up four hours. In the first match, versus host Japan, Alex Morgan scored a second-half equalizer in a 1:1 draw. Against an unorganized and less-than-full-strength Brazil, the USA won rather easily, with a 3:0 score, with all goals by Carli Lloyd, Shannon Boxx, and substitute Amy Rodriguez all coming on set pieces.
