US Women beat New Zealand 3-1 in International Friendly

The U.S. Women's National Team defeated New Zealand 3-1 with a first half brace from Julie Ertz and a late goal from Alex Morgan in front of a near capacity crowd of 17,301 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. Veteran defender Kelley O'Hara captained the side in her 100th cap for her country.

In a sign of the impact she would have on the game, Ertz had her first chance of the night in the 11th minute when her overhead volley flew just over the crossbar. Playing as a defensive midfielder, she went on to score in the 16th and 24th minutes to give the USA an early 2-0 lead.

Canada Soccer's National Teams are a perfect five for five at home in 2017 as the Men's National Team won 2:0 over Jamaica to close out a Summer of Soccer Series. Anthony Jackson-Hamel and Jonathan Osorio were the goalscorers as Canada thrilled a terrific crowd of 21,724 at BMO Field in Toronto. David "Junior" Hoilett was named Man of the Match.

"This was probably the best game I’ve seen Junior play," said Men’s National Team Head Coach Octavio Zambrano. "When they asked me about Man of the Match he was hands down the player chosen. He is an elite-type of player, he’s at the elite level. When he gets the ball the first thing in his mind is there is a goal, and I want to get there and that bodes well for us because that’s the kind of football we want to play"

Costa Rica stun USA 2-0 in FIFA World Cup Qualifier

The U.S. Men's National Team fell 2-0 to Costa Rica on Matchday 7 of the Final Round of 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying in front of a sold-out crowd of 25,600 at Red Bull Arena. The U.S. will look to rebound quickly with a fast approaching Matchday 8 encounter at Honduras on Tuesday.

A tight opening to the match included a legitimate penalty shout from Jozy Altidore in the 24th minute. A good bit of possession led to Christian Pulisic finding space on the right, before he centered looking for Altidore in stride. With his body between the goal and Kendall Waston, Altidore was set to receive the pass and was hauled down from behind by the Costa Rica defender before the following appeals went begging.
