The US Women's National Team defeated Germany 2-1 to claim the SheBelieves Cup crown. Germany opened the scoring in the 29th minute with a long range goal by Anja Mittag. This is the first goal the US Women have allowed in the 2016 calendar year.
The US would not be down long as Meghan Klingenberg sent a long ball over the defense to a sprinting Alex Morgan in the 35th minute. Morgan was able to flip the ball over the defender wth her left foot and volley it home with the right. It was an amazing goal by the star striker.
Samantha Mewis scored the winner in the 41st minute on a long range shot that was deflected and somehow found its way past the German keeper who was crawling on the ground trying to collect the ball. Neither team could tally in the second half and the USWNT defended and held the ball well to win 2-1.
In this tournament the USWNT defeated the 5th ranked team in the world in England, 3rd ranked in France, and 2nd ranked in Germany. A great accomplishment for the defending World Cup Champions.
Hope Solo took home another Golden Glove for top goalkeeper, while Alex Morgan took home the Golden Boot for top scorer and Golden Ball for top player. Congrats USWNT! Keep making us all proud!
