Victory for USA

USA’s women’s national soccer team earned a hard-fought 2-0 win over China during an international friendly game played last weekend at Ford Field. More than 17,000 fans watched the home team, led by goalie Hope Solo, above, and forward Alex Morgan, No. 13, dominate the Chinese squad. Carli Lloyd and Sydney Leroux scored goals as the squad improved to 26-1-3 in 2012.

The rest of the U.S. National team members are Heather Mitts, Christie Rampone, Becky Sauerbrunn, Kelley O’Hara, Amy LePeilbet, Shannon Boxx, Amy Rodriguez, Heather O’Reilly, Lauren Cheney, Abby Wambach, Megan Rapinoe, Rachel Buehler, Tobin Heath and Nicole Bamhart.
