FT: #USWNT 1, France 0. A fantastic performance from Hope Solo and a dramatic stoppage-time goal from Alex Morgan helped the USA claim its second victory at the SheBelieves Cup in Nashville. The USA is now 8-0-0 on the year, outscoring opponents 30-0. Next, the U.S. women travel to Boca Raton, Fla. to meet Germany in the third and final match of the 2016 SheBelieves Cup (March 9, 7:30p ET; ESPN 3.) Two mistakes: female teams that head the ball usually win. That first ball should have been headed clear.

Never, and I mean never, let Morgan get the ball on her left foot; she has no right foot at all. Still, nice finish from her. The US is really tough to break down defensively. Match v Germany should be worth watching!! Wish we could have seen this game televised; not streamed. Solo coming up HUGE in the first half. And… What an incredible ending with Pugh’s assist to Morgan scoring in the 90th minute!!! Just WOW! That was a tough match, but you ladies are on FIRE!
Amanda Pauline Caraballo I love the WNT but let’s get real. They’d lose badly to the men’s team. They lost to the U17 men’s team by a few goals already and yeah the WNT is better than then but not by that huge amount. There is no way to make up for the difference in power, strength and overall team speed. The MNT is not a bunch of random bozos off the street. The women’s national team is better than the men’s national team when you compare them to their respective competitions.
