[AMERICANS ABROAD] Whitney Engen, Meghan Klingenberg and Megan Rapinoe started for Swedish club Tyreso in its 0-0 tie at Austria's Neulengbach that moved it into the semifinals of the UEFA Women's Champion League for the first time thanks an 8-1 win at home in the first leg.

    I think someone made a mistake. It should be Christen Press, not Megan Rapinoe.
