U.S. Women’s National Team Defeat England 1-0

A 72nd-minute goal from second-half substitute Cyrstal Dunn ensured a 1-0 victory for the U.S. Women’s National Team over England on Thursday night in Tampa.

Dunn, brought on in the 67th minute, smashed a screamer from a tight angle and into the far post for the eventual game-winning goal. Dunn is now tied with Carli Lloyd for the USWNT lead seven goals this year. The match was also the first in the 2016 #SheBelieves Cup, which pits the USWNT against England, France, and Germany.

A handful of California natives and players who played college soccer in California saw action in the match. Natives earning some playing time were Whitney Engen, Christian Press, and Alex Morgan. The players who played collegiately out here were Kelly O’Hara, Mallory Pugh, and Julie Johnston.

Up next for the USWNT is France on Sunday.
