USWNT ROSTER RELEASE: SNUB EDITION

Young players shine as U.S.WNT defeat Russia in two friendlies

Move over veterans, the new-new-new kids have arrived. With two first caps awarded (Jane Campbell, Megan Oyster), a first goal (Rose Lavelle) and both Players of the Match being under the age of 25 (Crystal Dunn, Rose Lavelle), it is clear that the U.S. WNT has turned the page to a new chapter.

In Houston, the USA opened the scoring in the 20th minute after a Russia foul against Dunn inside the box gave the U.S. a penalty kick early in the game, while in Dallas on Thursday night it took just ten minutes for the stars and stripes to get on the score sheet. Here is the goal breakdown:

Dallas: Crystal Dunn (2), Allie Long (2).  Houston: Crystal Dunn (2), Carli Lloyd, Rose Lavelle

Up Next: The U.S. players will now enter a long break from national team duties as the 2017 NWSL season kicks off on April 15. The WNT will again reunite in June for a pair of friendlies in Europe against Sweden on June 8 (1:30 p.m. ET; ESPN2, UDN) and against Norway on June 11 (1:15 p.m. ET on FOX). This will mark the first time since early 2015 that the U.S. Women will head overseas for friendly matches.
