Albufeira, Portugal (Sports Network) - Christen Press just keeps scoring for
the United States women's national team as she tallied another goal on Friday
in a 5-0 win over China in the Algarve Cup.
U.S. head coach Tom Sermanni made a number of changes from the side that beat
Iceland, 3-0, on Wednesday and the team had little trouble dispatching China,
with Sydney Leroux and Ali Krieger scoring first-half goals to put the
Americans in control.
Megan Rapinoe tallied another goal shortly after halftime, and Press netted
her fourth goal in as many international appearances in the 64th minute.
Whitney Engen capped the scoring six minutes from time with her first
international goal for the U.S., which faces Sweden on Monday and can clinch a
place in the championship match with a win.
