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.
