Sell-Out Crowd Sees WNT Draw Korea Republic in Final World Cup Warm-Up

HARRISON, New Jersey (May 30, 2015) – Before a sellout crowd of 26,467 at Red Bull Arena, the U.S. Women’s National Team played the Korea Republic to a 0-0 draw in its final game of the Send-Off Series before departing to Canada for the start of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

After dropping its first match of the year to France 2-0 in Lorient, France, on Feb. 8, the USA has gone unbeaten in its next nine games and has outscored opponents 20-2 heading into Canada.

With two saves – the second of which was an acrobatic diving stop on the final kick of the match – U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo posted her 84th-career clean sheet, extending her WNT record for most shutouts.

The U.S. created chances throughout the match, especially on a sequence play involving Carli Lloyd, Morgan Brian and Sydney Leroux that culminated in the USA’s best chance for a scoring opportunity.

The USA was drawn into Group D at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup where it will face Australia, Nigeria and Sweden. The seventh edition of the tournament takes place from June 6-July 5 throughout Canada. The U.S. opens the tournament against Australia on June 8 at Winnipeg Stadium, faces Sweden on June 12 in Winnipeg, and finishes Group D play against Nigeria on June 16 at BC Place in Vancouver. The USA, Nigeria and Sweden have competed in every edition of the FIFA Women's World Cup. Fans can follow in-game updates on Twitter (@ussoccer_wnt and @ussoccer_esp).

Goal Scoring Rundown:
None

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
KOR – Kim Soon Yun, 32th minute: Morgan Brian moved into the box and sent a pass from the left side to Abby Wambach who was in the middle. Wambach saw Carli Lloyd come in into the attacking position inside the box, sending her a slight pass. As Lloyd ran to the ball however, Kim Soon Yun beat her to it and tapped it with her right foot to deviate it from Lloyd’s path and direct it out of bounds for a U.S. corner kick.

KOR – Kim Jung Mi, 50th minute: Carli Lloyd won the ball in the midfield, ran with it to the top of the box and sent a pass to the far left post to Morgan Brian, who waited toward the left side of the net. Brian controlled it, and before running out of room in the back line, crossed it back to Lloyd, who then tapped it to Sydney Leroux. Leroux was positioned right in the middle of the box and after receiving the pass sent a powerful shot straight to the middle of the net where Kim Jung Mi made a great save as she pushed the ball out with her hands to avoid the U.S. score.

USA – Hope Solo, 90+3 minute: In a last-minute effort, Korea Republic’s Lee Geum Min sent a cross from about 20 yards on the left side that Solo expertly batted away with a diving save to maintain the draw.

Next on the Schedule:
The U.S. WNT will open up Group D play at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Monday, June 8, against Australia. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET at Winnipeg Stadium in Winnipeg, Canada.

Milestone Watch:

  • Hope Solo now has a U.S. record 84 career shutouts in 170 caps with the USWNT, the second-most for a goalkeeper in U.S. history behind Brianna Scurry (173; 1994-2008.)
  • Solo has the most starts by a WNT goalkeeper with a 164, surpassing Scurry’s 159 (from 1994-2008). Solo is in 10th place on the WNT’s all-time starts list surpassing Brandi Chastain (160 games from 1988-2004).
  • Wambach earned her 242nd cap and is fifth all-time in the U.S. record list for most capped players.
  • Carli Lloyd now has 195 caps, and is closing in to the 200 cap milestone. Should she reach that total she would become the 10th WNT player to make that many appearances for her country and the fourth on the current roster (Wambach, Rampone and O’Reilly.)

Additional Notes:

  • The USA is now 9-0-2 all-time against Korea Republic.
  • The last time the USWNT tied 0-0 on home soil was Nov. 5, 2008 against Korea Republic in Cincinnati, Ohio. That was also the last time the U.S. was held scoreless on home soil, a span of 66 games.
  • The last game of the 2015 Send-Off Series had an attendance of 26,467, making it the third straight sellout crowd for a WNT game on U.S. soil – the first time the program has achieved three consecutive sellouts in its history. By comparison, the 2011 Send-Off match against Mexico before the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup recorded an attendance of 5,852.
  • In its last nine games, the U.S. has surrendered just two goals and has scored 20.
  • The USA’s current 96-game unbeaten streak at home (84-0-12 since Nov. 6, 2004) is a team record. The next-highest streak is 50 games (48-0-2) from Feb. 10, 1996, through April 22, 1999. The USA tied the record on May 14, 2011 (2-0 win against Japan at Columbus Crew Stadium) and broke the record with the 51st game on May 18, 2011 (another 2-0 win against Japan at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina).
  • U.S. captain Christie Rampone is currently the second most-capped player in U.S. and world history with 306 appearances.
  • Becky Sauerbrunn is the only player on the roster to start and play every game for the USA. She has played the most minutes (879) of anyone on the team.

National Soccer Hall of Fame Class of 2017 Induction to be Held Feb. 10 in Orlando

CHICAGO (Nov. 15, 2017) – U.S. Women’s National Team legend Briana Scurry and former coach Dr. Joe Machnik will be inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame on Saturday, Feb. 10, at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld.

The Class of 2017 induction ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. ET as part of the U.S. Soccer Annual General Meeting. The ceremony will be invite-only but fans will be able to watch live on ussoccer.com.

During the 1999 Women's World Cup Final at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, and in front of the largest crowd to ever watch a women's sporting event, Scurry helped shut out China for 120 minutes before stopping the Steel Roses' third penalty kick attempt in the dramatic shootout, allowing final U.S. shooter Brandi Chastain to clinch the World Cup title. Scurry also shepherded the U.S. WNT to two Olympic gold medals during an eleven-year run as the team's top goalkeeper.

Machnik has been involved with soccer in the United States in almost every way: as a player, coach, referee, instructor, match commissioner and now as a broadcaster for FOX Sports. Since 1977, Machnik has run No. 1 Soccer Camps, a program that has helped develop over 80,000 young players and seen its alumni play professionally and with the U.S. National Team. In 1990, Machnik was on the sidelines with head coach Bob Gansler as an assistant coach when the U.S. Men's National Team reached its first World Cup in 40 years. He has served as head of referees for three professional soccer leagues, including 15 years of involvement with Major League Soccer.

Briana Scurry Bio:
Scurry played for the U.S. WNT from 1994-2008, anchoring teams that won a World Cup title and two Olympic gold medals. The team's first choice goalkeeper for eleven years, she was Player of the Match in the 1999 Women's World Cup Final, perhaps the most memorable women's sporting event of all time. At the time of her retirement in 2010, Scurry was by far the most decorated goalkeeper in WNT history with 175 caps and 72 career shutouts. Professionally, she was a founding player in the Women's United Soccer Association with the Atlanta Beat. Now, Scurry is a powerful advocate for concussion/traumatic brain injury awareness and a motivational speaker.

Dr. Joe Machnik Bio:
Machnik has done it all in American soccer, as a player, coach, referee, instructor, match commissioner and broadcaster. An instrumental figure in the sport, Machnik helped guide the U.S. MNT back to the World Cup in 1990 after a 40-year absence as an assistant coach and worked as head of referees for three different professional leagues, including 15 years with MLS. His No. 1 Soccer Camps have helped to develop over 80,000 young players since 1977 and he is believed to be the only man to both coach in two NCAA Finals and officiate an NCAA Final.

La U.S.MNT Empata 1-1 Con el Campeón Europeo Portugal

LEIRIA, Portugal (14 de noviembre, 2017) – La Selección Masculina de Estados Unidos cerró el año empatando 1-1 ante Portugal en suelo portugués, con una alineación que presentó a varios jóvenes que debutaban con la selección mayor. Entre los debutantes de la U.S. MNT se encontraba el volante ofensivo formado en el FC Dallas y que milita en el Schalke 04 de la Bundesliga, Weston McKennie. El mediocampista de 19 años disfrutó de un debut soñado, anotando el gol de la ventaja apenas pasado el minuto 20 de juego.

McKennie estuvo cerca del doblete con un remate de cabeza que se estrelló en el travesaño y estuvo a punto de registrar una asistencia a Tyler Adamas, pero el arquero Bruno realizó una gran atajada para evitar la derrota de los europeos.

Lamentablemente, el portero Ethan Horvath tuvo un día complicado en apenas su segunda actuación con la U.S. MNT, ya que un marcado error en un balón centrado por Antunes que no tenía ninguna dosis de peligro costó muy caro y término significando el empate de los vigentes campeones europeos.

Y si bien es cierto que EE.UU. estuvo cerca de conseguir el segundo tanto, el cual entre el travesaño y las atajadas de Bruno les fue negado, también Portugal tuvo aproximaciones que pudieron significar la derrota, en especial un potente disparo de Gonçalo Paciência que reventó el larguero.

Próximamente: Estados Unidos no volverá a jugar hasta finales de enero del próximo año. Recibirá en el StubHub Center a la selección de Bosnia & Herzegovina el 28 de enero, 2018, a través de la señal de FS1 y UniMás.   

Resumen de Goles:
USA – Weston McKennie, minuto 21: El jugador del Schalke se combinó con C.J. Sapong por la banda izquierda. En el área y con balón controlado, McKennie amagó a Ricardo Ferreira y se puso de frente con el arquero portugués para definir con pierna cambiada.

POR – Vitorino Antunes, minuto 31: Cambio de juego de Bruno Fernandes a la banda izquierda donde venía incorporándose Antunes. Entre la línea de banda y el costado izquierdo del área grande, Antunes prendió el balón de volea para sacar un centro con efecto directo a la posición del portero Ethan Horvath. Pero Horvath no pudo abrazar el esférico y se le escabulló de túnel y lentamente rodó para introducirse a segundo palo.

Atajadas Claves y Jugadas Peligrosas:
POR – Manuel Fernandes, minuto 35: Potente cañonazo de derecha de larga distancia que Horvath contuvo sin dar rebote.

POR – Danilo Pereira, minuto 39: El mediocampista del Porto aprovechó la complacencia de la zaga estadounidense en la salida e interceptó un pase a Kellyn Acosta de frente al arco. Danilo sacó un disparo raso que Horvath nuevamente contuvo.

USA – John Brooks, minuto 44: Tiro de esquina rematado de cabeza por Brooks adelantándose a la salida del arquero Beto, y mandando el balón al fondo del arco. Sin embargo el tanto no contó, ya que el árbitro había señalado previamente un empujón de Matt Miazga a su marcador.

USA – Tyler Adams, minuto 52: Servicio por izquierda de McKennie que la zaga portuguesa fue incapaz de cortar, y tras un bote, Adams remató de cabeza a segundo poste. Beto se lanzó para realizar la atajada.

USA – Weston McKennie, minuto 55: Tiro de esquina rematado de cabeza por el debutante que se estrelló en el travesaño y de campanazo no alcanzó a cruzar la línea de gol.

POR – Gonçalo Paciência, minuto 68: En segunda jugada tras el rechazo defensivo en un tiro de esquina, Bernardo Silva le dejó un pase a Paciência quien de media vuelta sacó un elevado y potente remate en el área que reventó el travesaño.

USA – Cameron Carter-Vickers, minuto 72: Centro a perfil cambiado de Lynden Gooch por izquierda, directo al corazón del área. Tras botar en el área, Carter-Vickers controló en el área chica, el esférico le quedo a media altura y antes de que rematara de zurda, el portero Bruno salvó su arco con una media tijera de derecha.
