MOST COMMENTED

Newly married Kristine Lilly scored in the 73rd minute to earn the USA a 1-1 tie with Denmark before 8,200 fans Sunday in the opening game of the Peace Quenn Cup in Gimhae, South Korea.

The USA dominated the first half, but the Danes who scored first when Camilla Anderson hammered her left-footed first-time shot into the upper left corner from 16 yards.

The USA finally broke through in the 73rd minute as Abby Wambach out-muscled Mariann Knudsen in the left side of the box and laid a perfect ball back to Lilly, who scored her 114th goal for the USA with a shot from 14 yards.

With the tie, the USA moves to 13-0-4 this year and remains undefeated under Coach Greg Ryan. The USA's next match is at Chenoan Stadium outside of Seoul on Tuesday against Australia, a 1-0 winner over the Netherlands in the other Group B match. In Group A, Canada beat Italy, 3-2, on 17-year-old Jodi Ann Robinson's goal in the 80th minute, and Brazil edged host South Korea, 1-0.
