ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The road towards the 2021 Tokyo Olympics looked very bright for the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) for soccer.
This scenario developed after the USWNT extended its unbeaten streak to 43 games after they beat the visiting Mexico women’s soccer team 4-0 in a friendly match on a rainy night in East Hartford, Connecticut Thursday.
The Mewis sisters Sam and Kristie took charge of the USWNT in their win.
The visiting Mexico team played solid in the first 20 minutes of the game.
But finally, the U.S. went ahead soon after when Kristie Mewis set up her sister Sam to smash home from the top of the penalty area for a
1-0 lead.
Megan Rapinoe set up Christen Press for the Americans’ second goal as the U.S. took a 2-0 lead into half-time.
In the second half, USWNT scored two more goals to finally put the game for good.
The two teams are set to face each other again in another friendly match on July 5, again in East Hartford, before starting the Olympic competition in Tokyo against Sweden on July 21.
