The US Women’s National Team will face off against Mexico in the second of back-to-back friendlies in the WNT Send-Off Series before they head to Japan for their Olympic campaign. The US easily defeated Mexico Thursday night 4-0, thanks to a brace from Christen Press and individual goals from Sam Mewis and Tobin Heath. The Americans logged 27 shots overall (seven on target) and controlled 59 percent of possession, only allowing Mexico to get five overall shots with one on frame.
Expect more of the same in the follow-up game, which will take place at Pratt & Whitney Stadium on Rentschler Field for the second straight time. Andonovski’s side was able to field a lot of players by making six subs throughout the match, allowing the majority of the bench to see minutes on the field. Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe both added assists, while Tierna Davidson assisted on Press’ second goal, and Sam Mewis’ sister Kristie assisted on the match’s opening score.
The Send-Off Series serves as a great warm-up for the USWNT before it takes off for the Olympics in Tokyo. The team starts its campaign there against Sweden on July 21.
