USA took early control against Mexico and never relinquished its dominance, rolling past its Concacaf opponent with a 4-1 win in front of 14,360 fans at EverBank Field. Goals by Mallory Pugh and Carli Lloyd bookended an Alex Morgan brace to put the USA up 4-0 before Mexico grabbed a late consolation tally.

It was all USA in the first half with the home team out-shooting Mexico 10-2 and maintaining 76.4 percent of the possession. The USA finished with a 20-9 margin in shots. The USA had an early chance when Megan Rapinoe connected with Morgan Brian in front of the goal but Brian’s shot was saved by Mexico and Houston Dash goalkeeper Bianca Henninger, who is a former U.S. youth international. Rapinoe would get her assist a few minutes later when she poked the ball to Pugh inside the penalty area and the 19-year-old finished from close range. Read the rest of this entry →
