USA 3-0 Chile: Schrödinger's Match Both Kills and Builds USWNT's Momentum in Women's World Cup

Two games were played at the Parc des Princes on Sunday evening.

One of them saw a dominant team take the sensible decision to rest a swathe of starting players in a theoretically easier game, giving rotation players a chance to shine and – in USWNT coach Jill Ellis' words – 'get hot'.

They ran the game from start to finish, had killed the game off when they went into the half-time break up 3-0, and cruised from there. They could've scored more, but for a few fantastic saves from the goalkeeper and one curling shot finding woodwork rather than net.
