Lloyd Hat Trick Leads WNT to 8-0 Victory against Haiti in Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (Sept. 20, 2015) – The World Cup Champion U.S. Women’s National Team continued its Victory Tour with an 8-0 win against Haiti in front of a record crowd of 35,753 at Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala. The crowd was the largest ever for a stand-alone WNT match in the southeastern United States. 

It only took a minute for the U.S. to find the net as Kelley O’Hara took a short corner and crossed it in to Julie Johnston, who converted for the match’s first goal. The goal was one of five that would come for the WNT in the first half. Lloyd scored her first on a penalty kick in the 16th minute and one minute later Crystal Dunn put in her second goal in as many games after receiving a brilliant through ball from Megan Rapinoe. Lloyd would close out the half with two goals to complete her hat trick and in doing so became just the fifth American player with five international hat tricks (Hamm, Parlow, Wambach, Akers), three of which she has earned in the WNT’s last five games. 


The USA continued to dominate possession and produced a number of chances in the second half. Amy Rodriguez converted the sixth goal of the game six minutes into the second frame, while Alex Morgan and Heather O’Reilly each tallied in the final five minutes of regulation to bring the WNT scoring total to eight and seal the win for the USA, which pushed its unbeaten streak at home to 100 consecutive games (88-0-12). 

It will be a month before the WNT takes the field again when they will match up with Brazil for a pair of matches that continue the Victory Tour. The first match will be in the Pacific Northwest at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington. on Oct. 20. After that the team will travel back across the country for the second match at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida, on Oct. 25. For more information on tickets, click here.  

Goal Scoring Rundown:  
USA – Julie Johnston (Kelley O’Hara) 1st minute: 
Before a full minute of soccer had even been played, the U.S. found its first goal. It came from a short corner that O’Hara took from the right. The Haiti defense was slow to get into position, and O’Hara capitalized on the mistake and smashed in a low hard cross that found Johnston. Johnston directed in the cross with a confident touch that found the back of the net for the game’s first score.  USA 1, HAI 0  


USA – Carli Lloyd (penalty kick), 16th minute: After making a cutting move on the left hand side of the box, Alex Morgan was brought down, which set up the WNT with a penalty kick. Carli Lloyd stepped up to take it and calmly tucked it into the left corner to double the U.S. lead. USA 2, HAI 0  


USA – Crystal Dunn (Megan Rapinoe), 17th minute: Just a minute after scoring its second goal, the WNT put the finishing touches on the third. After Haiti lost possession from the kickoff, Megan Rapinoe played a hard through ball up to Crystal Dunn. Dunn raced past the defense and ran onto the ball taking a controlling touch before smashing into the bottom left corner. USA 3, HAI 0  


USA – Carli Lloyd (Alex Morgan) 22nd minute: Alex Morgan jetted down the left had side and attacked to the end line, where she blasted a cross in front of goal. The ball just got by Crystal Dunn, but Lloyd had run in behind and was there to bury for her second goal of the game. USA 4, HAI 0  


USA – Carli Lloyd (Megan Rapinoe) 39th minute: Megan Rapinoe took the free kick from 35 yards out and looped a ball into the top of the box. Lloyd outmuscled her defender and rose for a header. She flicked on toward the goal and the ball dipped in over the jumping goalkeeper, clipping the cross bar and falling in. USA 5, HAI 0 


USA – Amy Rodriguez (Kelley O'Hara) 51st minute: With little pressure on the ball for Amy Rodriguez, she took a few settling touches near the top of the box before ripping a blast from 20 yards out that beat the diving goalkeeper for a score.  USA 6, HAI 0 


USA – Alex Morgan (Whitney Engen) 85th minute: After producing a number of chances throughout the match, Morgan was finally rewarded for her efforts, scoring the matches seventh goal on a header in the 85th minute. It started from a short corner. O’Hara took the ball and attacked the box whipping in a cross that Engen got a touch to. The ball floated up and Morgan headed it into the net.  USA 7, HAI 0 


USA – Heather O’Reilly 88th minute: The U.S. did the work to get the ball down near the goal. After a deflection and a missed clearance the ball ended up at the feet of O’Reilly, who capitalized and kicked in for the eighth goal of the game.  USA 8, HAI 0 FINAL

Milestone Watch:
 

  • Johnston’s goal was the fifth of her career goal and just the second to come from her foot. The slim majority of her goals (three) have come from headers. All five of Johnston’s goals have come off of set pieces. 
  • With her second hat trick in as many games, Carli Lloyd pushed her career total to 77 goals and in doing so passed Cindy Parlow for 6th on the all-time U.S. goal scoring list. Lloyd is the fifth American with five international hat tricks (Hamm, Parlow, Wambach, Akers). 
  • Lloyd has scored 16 goals this year, which is her career-high for a calendar year. She previously had scored 15 in 2012 and 2014. She has scored 13 times in her last eight games and today marked her 11th multi-goal game for the WNT.  
  • Amy Rodriguez scored the 30th goal of her career. 
  • Alex Morgan’s 54th goal moved her into sole possession of ninth place on the all-time U.S. scoring list, breaking her tie with Carin Gabarra. 


Additional Notes: 

  • Dunn’s goal is her second in as many games. She scored the first goal of her WNT career in the USA’s last match against Haiti three days ago. 
  • The USA improved to 6-0-0 all-time against Haiti with 42 goals scored and none conceded.

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.
