USWNT Tops Portugal, 1-0, in Pre-Olympics Friendly

As the U.S. women's national team gears up for its run to reclaim the gold medal at the Tokyo Games, the team got all it could handle from Portugal in an international friendly on Thursday night in Houston.

After dominating possession for over an hour and generating dozens of fruitless chances, the USWNT finally broke through in the late stages en route to a 1-0 win.

Sam Mewis scored off a header in the 76th minute on an assist from Christen Press, finally capitalizing on the many chances the team was able to generate all night. It was Mewis's fourth goal of the year.
