A Dutch Treat On Peachtree Street

Sunday night was a tougher test for the U.S National Women’s team taking on the Netherlands.  The crowd was shocked when the Dutch took the lead in the second minute. The U.S came on strong for the remainder of the first half.  Carli Lloyd tied the game at 1 during the 32nd minute and it stayed that way going into halftime.

Alyssa Naeher had a solid game in the nets and made some key saves in the second half.  There was an only goal that gave the U.S a 2 to 1 lead.   Allie Long scored in the 76 minute to give the U.S a 3-1 victory.  However, the defense looked shaky at times and don’t be surprised if Head Coach Jill brings in some new goaltenders, forwards, and midfielders at the next camp. They could be from the Under-17,  Under-20 teams and the NWSL when their season ends.

Megan Rapinoe took a knee during the national anthem for the second straight game.  She could be facing a suspension from U.S Soccer.  They are two friendlies against Switzerland in October and don’t be shocked if they are some changes on and off the field.
