2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup

U.S. wins World Cup with a final four-star performance

For four years, the jersey worn by the U.S. women’s national soccer team has featured three blue stars above the logo, signifying the World Cup championships won across almost three decades. On Sunday, as the players danced and hugged amid confetti and celebration following a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands, they were handed new shirts made especially for the occasion. The U.S. team has been the beacon for the women’s game, both on and off the field. But until this day, it had never won consecutive world crowns. Four years after lifting the trophy in Canada, the Americans retained the title by scoring twice in an eight-minute span of the second half. Returning from injury, Megan Rapinoe recorded her sixth goal ― tied with her teammate Morgan and England’s Ellen White for the tournament le...

Alex Morgan and USWNT spoil tea time for England

“Not since Boston dumped it in the sea has England been dissed with tea like this,” declared the front page of Wednesday’s New York Post. Alex Morgan’s ‘tea drinking’ goal celebration, after heading the winner against England to send her side into the World Cup final, was definitely a diss. England forward Lianne Sanderson thought so. She called it “distasteful”. As the newspaper saw it, Morgan’s swipe at Phil Neville’s Lionesses was the best burn against the English since a load of tea was chucked in the sea in Boston in 1773, setting in motion American independence from the yoke of British rule. ‘Sticking it to the Brits’ was the US women’s national team take on it too. It said Morgan’s strike was “...

Marta becomes the all-time top scorer of the World Cup

Brazil star Marta set a record on Tuesday as she scored her 17th career Women’s World Cup goal. The goal came from the penalty spot 74 minutes into Tuesday’s group stage clash with Italy, which Brazil ended up winning 1-0 behind the Marta goal. Marta stepped up and smashed her spot-kick into the bottom right-hand corner, giving Brazil a lead they would never relinquish while making a bit of history in the process.  Marta’s 17th goal was enough to lead her past German star Miroslav Klose, who scored 16 goals across four World Cups as a member of the German national team. She is the only footballer to score at five different World Cup editions   The 33-year-old forward, who is the only footballer to score at five different World Cup editions, has scored 112 total goals...

USA 13-0 Thailand: 2019 Women’s World Cup

The reigning champions delivered a 13-0 thrashing, scoring more goals than any other team in tournament history, and then consoled their opponents. There were too many goals to begin to describe them all in a newspaper article. But these were the scorers and the minutes when the goals came: Alex Morgan (12th), Rose Lavelle (20th), Lindsey Horan (32nd), Sam Mewis (50th), Morgan (53rd), Mewis (54th), Lavelle (56th), Morgan (74th), Megan Rapinoe (79th), Morgan (81st), Mallory Pugh (85th), Morgan (87th), and, finally, Lloyd (92nd). It was the first time a team had scored 13 goals in a World Cup game — men’s or women’s — and the margin of victory was the largest for a match in either tournament. Morgan’s five goals equaled a record for a Women’s World Cup game set by Michelle Akers of the Unite...
