ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The United States women’s national team (USWNT) in soccer has extended its winning streak to 41 games after beating the visiting Jamaica soccer team 4-0 on Sunday.
The home team USWNT was a team on a mission as they started hot from the get-go until the end of the game.
Carli Lloyd started the gold haul of the team with a 24-second strike — the second quickest goal in the United States women’s national team history.
Aside from her quick goal, Lloyd also became the oldest woman — at 38 years, 332 days — to score a goal for the national team.
After Lloyd’s goal, Lindsey Horan scored on a penalty kick in the seventh minute. Midge Purce made it 3-0 in the 22nd minute, for her second international goal.
Alex Morgan added a final goal in stoppage time — her 110th goal for the United States.
Aside from extending the winning streak, the team also remains undefeated in 55 games on American soil.
The team hopes to extend further their winning streak when they host Nigeria at the new Q2 Stadium in Austin on Wednesday.
