Us Women Blitz Brazil To Win Tournament Of Nations

The U.S. women’s national team rallied from an early deficit to defeat Brazil 4-1 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Ill., on Thursday to win the Tournament of Nations.

Alex Morgan’s unmarked tap-in of a Megan Rapinoe free kick not only put the U.S. ahead 4-1 in the 77th minute, but it assured the Americans the title based on a better goal differential than defending champion Australia (plus-5 to plus-4).

Both the Americans and Aussies finished 2-0-1 for seven points. Australia earned a 2-0 victory over Japan (0-3-0) earlier in the day at Toyota Park.
