- "The U.S. Women’s National Team defeated New Zealand 5-0 with a dominant performance on Tuesday night in front of an electric crowd of 30,596 as Alex Morgan, Lindsey Horan, Mallory Pugh, and Lynn Williams scored at Nippert Stadium. The USA put together an excellent performance on both sides of the ball, controlling possession and piling up a 19-5 shot advantage. With the win, the USA sweeps the two-game series against the Oceania champions."

It was against the biggest of all opponents, Bayern Munich, and he played 56 minutes in central midfield before going off for a second forward. Schalke, which trailed, 2-0, went on to lose the game, 3-0."
