After an uncharacteristic shellacking by France this weekend, the USWNT rebounded(?) today with a 1-0 victory against Spain.
Spain out-possessed the US 52% – 48%. The US registered more shots on goal (9 to 4) and on target (3 to 2). When the USWNT is firing on all cylinders, this is a game they’d typically blow the doors off a team ranked 12th globally like Spain.
Having said that, Christen Press (no relation to High Press Soccer) literally did blow the doors off Spain’s backline for this 54′ go-ahead goal.
