USWNT Continue Victory Tour With 3-0 Win Over Portugal

by September 5, 2019 0 comments

The United States Women’s National Team’s Victory Tour has brought the World Cup-winning side another victory. This time, the women hosted Portugal at the Allianz Field in Saint Paul, MN where they won 3-0.

Carli Lloyd continued her stellar send-off tour with a brace, scoring in the 22nd and 32nd minutes of the game. The 37-year-old has now scored in each Victory Tour match and will hope to continue her streak next month against South Korea.

Lindsey Horan added the third goal in the 83rd minute, heading the ball into the back of the net from a Christen Press corner. Portugal’s zone defending left the 5-foot-9 midfielder with space in the box to head home.

The National Team was without star players Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan, and Rose Lavelle, but were still able to topple Portugal and keep their third consecutive clean sheet.

The USWNT don’t feature again until next month, playing two friendlies against South Korea on Oct. 3 and 6 in Charlotte, NC and Chicago, IL.
