New (interim) coach, similar result
[USA-CHINA] The post-Tom Sermanni era began with a 3-0 win over China before a crowd of 12,857 at San Diego's Qualcomm
Stadium. For most of the U.S. players it was their last game before heading off to the start of the 2014 NWSL season.
Like against China on Sunday in a 2-0 win, Sermanni's last match
before he was fired, the USA was in control throughout, and took a 2-0 lead into halftime on a pair of goals by Carli Lloyd, the 49th and 50th of her
It took only 16 seconds after the break for Sydney Leroux to show off her speed and put the USA ahead 3-0 off an assist from
The win upped Jill Ellis' record in two stints as interim head coach to 6-0-2. It's likely a
new head coach will be in place before the next U.S. game against Canada May 8 in Winnipeg.
The win extended its unbeaten streak against China -- one of its oldest rivals -- to 23 games
dating back to 2003.
