Press sparks Tyreso rout with hat trick
[AMERICANS ABROAD] It took Christen Press less than minute to score her first goal and she joined Brazilian great Marta with a hat trick to lead Swedish club Tyreso to an 8-1 win over Austria's SV Neulengbach in the first leg of their UEFA Women's Champions League
Fellow American Meghan Klingenberg set up Press for the opening goal with a long ball behind the Neulengbach defense, and the former
Stanford star, who will join the Chicago Red Stars after the Champions League campaign ends, added goals in the 64th and 80th minutes. Whitney Engen also
started for Tyreso, which has never won the European title.
In anticipation of the move of Press, Klingenberg and Engen to the NWSL, Tyreso signed four Brazilians in the offseason: Mayara, Rilany, Fabiana and Thaisa. Only
Rilany and Thaisa played against Neulengbach.
UEFA Women's Champions League, First Leg:
