[AMERICANS ABROAD] Before heading off to the Algarve Cup in Portugal, where the USA opens play Wednesday against Iceland (TV: pay per view, 9 a.m. ET), Americans Tobin Heath, Lindsey Horan and Megan Rapinoe squared off in the clasico of French women's soccer.

Rapinoe's Lyon beat Paris St. Germain, 3-0, before a crowd of 6,512 at the Stade de Gerland to show why it is the best team in the world.

Lyon, winner of the 2012 French, European and unofficial world titles, is now 16-0-0 with a goal margin of 98-5.

Rapinoe played 57 minutes before coming off, while Heath and Horan went all the way for PSG.

Lyon, which now leads PSG by six points with a game in hand, got two goals from Swedish star Lotta Schelin. The third goal was an own goal.

-- Dutch champion FC Twente, led by defender CoCo Goodson, shut down the attack of Ajax for a 1-0 victory in the Bene A League. FC Twente's defense did not allow a shot by Ajax in the second half, for the win that puts it in second place, only one point behind Standard Liege. The Bene A League consists of the top four teams from the Dutch and Belgian divisions.

-- Teresa Noyola of ADO has left the Dutch club to join her NWSL team, the Seattle Reign FC. The former Stanford star represents Mexico internationally and will join the Reign after the Algarve Cup.
