It was another slow start for the U.S. Women’s National Team, but in the end, it was another victory. And a huge one it was.
Carli Lloyd’s header for a score on an assist from Julie Johnston in the 51st minute broke a scoreless tie and Team USA defeated China 1-0 Friday night in a Women’s World Cup quarterfinal, sending the Americans into the semifinals once again.
It was the 4th consecutive match Hope Solo and the No. 2 FIFA-ranked U.S. team has held the opponent scoreless.
