O’Reilly, US women top Japan 2-0 in exhibition

Heather O’Reilly had a goal and set up another to lead the

United States women to a 2-0 win over Japan on Wednesday in the

Americans’ next-to-last friendly before the Women’s World Cup.

Amy Rodriguez also scored and Hope Solo made three saves in her

second straight shutout to help the U.S. claim its second win over

Japan in a five-day span and its third of the year.

The Americans wrap up their pre-World Cup warm-up schedule June

5 against Mexico. Three weeks later, they play their World Cup

opener against North Korea in Dresden, Germany.
