[UEFA WOMEN'S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE]Americans Christen Press, Whitney Engen and Meghan Klingenberg finished their careers at Swedish club Tyreso with a heartbreaking 4-3 loss to defending champion Wolfsburg in the final of the UEFA Women's Champions League. Tyreso led 2-0 at the half and 3-2 with less than a half hour to play.

Tyreso jumped out to 2-0 lead at Lisbon's Estadio do Restelo when Veronica Boquete, bound for the Portland Thorns, set up five-time FIFA Women's Player of the Year Marta, and Press broke through the Wolfsburg defense to set up Boquete two minutes later.

A sublime effort from Marta put Tyreso back ahead 3-2 after Alexandra Popp and Martina Mueller scored for Wolfsburg. The game changed when Klingenberg was off the field injured and Serena Faisstmade it 3-3 in the 68th minute. Wolfsburg finally pulled ahead 10 minutes from time when Mueller scored her second of the game.

The U.S. trio, now bound for the NWSL, was hoping to join Ali Krieger and Gina Lewandowski as the only Americans to win the European club title.
