The US women’s national team played perfectly at the 2019 Women’s World Cup by defeating Chile 3-0 on Sunday.It was not 13-0 win against Thailand but against a stronger opponent.Here, Carli Lloyd began in strike for her captain Alex Morgan and scored two goals. They(USA) missed several times, including a penalty kick but Julie Ertz’s another goal was more than enough.As a result,US team sealed a place in the round of 16.
Below are the three key points about the game.
1.Alternating lineup fits for US
Us coach Jill Ellis configured with a 4-3-3 but only 4 women returned from the opener.The whole front three of Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and Tobin Heath was changed by Christen Press, Carli Lloyd and Mallory Pugh.The americans were brilliant in strike and Lloyd’s 1st goal was outstanding
2.Lloyd became a legend now
It was her 6th straight Women’s World Cup game here with her two goals,made a record in the tournament.Yesterday, Lloyd(36)again Proved that she is something( in sense of contribution).Apart from the goals, she stroked the post for couple of times, connected on a couple heads etc.
3.US was so good in defense
Chile didn’t able to aim any shots on the goal. Also, US handled very carefully for some set passes.US team needs a more test but everyone will now believe that the team is ready for the next.Crystal Dunn and Kelley O’Hara were in resting and the defense named Becky and Abby didn’t need to look on goal.
