USWNT Lose Two In A Row

The USWNT suffered a back-to-back loss for the first time since 2001 at the Algarve Cup in Portugal. The WNT fell 5-3 to Denmark in the final game of Group B. The team will now play Korea DPR in the seventh-place match on March 12th. Christen Press, Megan Rapinoe and Sydney Leroux each scored goals in the second half to try and make up the deficit from a poor first half. Rapinoe is still optimistic looking forward:

“We’re seven months away from qualifiers and even longer from the World Cup, and for the most part, everyone is fit and healthy going into the NWSL season. Of course, we want to have to better results, but it’s not time to get to down on ourselves or be panicked. No one wins every game in football and these last two games we played excellent teams and just didn’t get it done.”
