Christen Press banger leads the way for USA in 2-0 win over England

Starting XI: Alyssa Naeher, Becky Sauerbrunn, Abby Dahlkemper, Kelley O’Hara, Crystal Dunn, Julie Ertz, Lindsey Horan, Rose Lavelle, Carli Lloyd, Tobin Heath, Christen Press

The problems that you might have noticed watching the USWNT at the start of Olympic qualifying persisted as they started SheBelieves tonight in Orlando. This is a team whose players are clearly not in season, and it showed in their first half against England. Nobody looked particularly sharp, except perhaps Alyssa Naeher, Rose Lavelle, and Julie Ertz. Everyone had their mistakes, like Crystal Dunn letting a player slip behind her, or Tobin Heath taking one too many dribbles, or Carli Lloyd not finishing some on-a-plate chances.
