The USA was forced to settle for a pair of ties in its first two games at the Four Nations Women's Tournament in Guangzhou, China.

After opening with a 0-0 tie against reigning world champion Germany on Friday, Greg Ryan's Americans tied England, 1-1, on Sunday. The USA got its lone goal against England on a bullet header from forward Heather O'Reilly-- her ninth international goal -- on a cross from Natasha Kaiin the 17th minute. England, which had the better of play with more dangerous attacking chances, equalized just two minutes into the second half on a goal by right back Alex Scott.

In the opener against Germany, U.S. defender Cat Whitehillearned her 100th cap while captaining the USA to mark the occasion. The match was also the first career cap for forward Lauren Cheney, who played the first 45 minutes before giving way to Kai. In the England game, 17-year-old forward Casey Nogueira, who played the first half, and 20-year-old midfielder Yael Averbuch, who played the final half hour, both earned their first senior caps.

China beat England, 2-0, and tied Germany, 0-0, in its first two games. The final day of the tournament takes place on Tuesday at the Guangdong Olympic Stadium. China host the USA at 3 a.m. ET.
