WNT Comeback Victory Vs Brazil

WNT comeback victory vs Brazil was one of the biggest

wins in US soccer history.

The USA women’s team acquires a huge comeback victory vs. Brazil last Sunday at the Qualcomm Stadium during the 2017 Tournament of Nations. They were able to overcome a 3-1 deficit during the final 10 minutes of the game, resulting to them beating Brazil, 4-3. This huge success is due to their excellent teamwork and commitment in training. Samantha Mewis atleast got the USA level on the 18th minute with a 22 yard strike to keep the US in the game, assisted by Rapinoe.

The comeback began with Christen Press making a goal during the 80th minute, just 2 minutes after Andressinha of Team Brazil scored a free kick. She has exerted great effort in order to turn her defender around and using her right foot, she shot to the upper left corner, passing the goalkeeper of Brazil, Barbara. This is Press’s 2nd goal of the year and 43rd international goal as a professional soccer player.

5 minutes later, an equalizer was delivered by Megan Rapinoe with the assistance of Press. Rapinoe has not scored for the national team since the World Cup that has occurred back in 2015 and she has been recovering from knee injury last year. Nevertheless, she was able to rebound this season by leading the league with 12 goals. Julie Ertz also tucked away a goal on a deflection during the 89th minute, giving way for the team’s first lead in the game.

Although the game did not began smoothly for the USA women’s team, during the final 10 plus minutes, there has been a significant 180° changed on how the members of the team played and this played a very vital role in the team’s success. With that, Jill Ellis’s team was able to avoid losing for the 4th time this year. Of course, Coach Ellis has also played an important role with her moving Sauerbrunn from her usual spot at the center back to the defensive midfielder.

On the other hand, prior to the team’s victory, they fell 1-0 to Australia. Australia’s team has not won any of the 27 matches that has previously occurred against U.S. So, this can also be considered an achievement in their part. The goal was made thank to Tameka Butt who lashed the ball past Naecher after Egmond flicked the ball towards him during the 67th minute of the game.

Australia has led the Tournament of Nations after their 4-2 win against Japan during the first game of the day. Nevertheless, due to this win of the USA women’s team, they still have the chance to go for the tournament title. All of the 4 teams would be heading to the North to conclude the competition. So, they don’t have much time to celebrate for their success since they need to continue practicing for their upcoming game vs. Japan while the Australian team would be competing with Brazil on the 3rd of August at the StubHub Center. In order for the US women’s team to win, they need to defeat Japan and Brazil needs to defeat Australia. That way, the 3-goal difference would be overturned. After WNT comeback victory vs Brazil, now on to Japan Aug 3rd, tune in for the drama and excitement.
