The USA Women’s Soccer team, led by goalkeeper Hope Solo, won the 2019 edition of the American’s Cups after beating Mexico 2-0 on Wednesday to win their fifth straight title.
The USA won the tournament last year, beating the Netherlands 3-1, but that was their first time competing in a women’s tournament since 2008.
This year’s event was played on grass and had an average attendance of 13,622 spectators, the second-lowest in the history of the tournament.
The USWNT were coming off their first victory of the year, defeating China 1-0 in the final to advance to the quarterfinals.
The win was the USWNW’s second straight in the tournament, and the first in the US women’s soccer league.
“It’s a great feeling,” Solo said of the victory.
“We’re just grateful to be a part of it.”
The US won the last time the US WNT met Mexico at the tournament in 2020, a 3-2 victory at Olympic Stadium in Los Angeles.
“We know we’re a good team,” Solo added.
“Our style is going to be similar.
We’re going to play very direct.
It’s going to take us a little bit to adapt to Mexico, but I’m confident that we’ll be able to get back on track.”
