Watch: Crystal Dunn strike puts USA up 1–0 on England

Friday March 4th, 2016

Crystal Dunn broke a 0–0 tie in the 71st minute of the USA’s SheBelieves cup opener against England.

Dunn took a pass on the left edge of the box after a nice passing combination and cut back toward goal. She found plenty of space and struck from just inside 18 yards and hit a beautiful shot that flew into the upper right corner. The United States took its first lead after what had been an otherwise deadlocked game — despite a major possession advantage for the U.S.

Dunn notched her 11th goal as a member of the national team in 26 appearances.

The United States will face France on March 6 and Germany on March 9 in the round-robin tournament.
