[ALGARVE CUP] The USA defeated Norway, 2-0, to move into the final of the Algarve Cup for the ninth consecutive year.
 
Lindsey Tarpley and Carli Lloyd scored for the Americans, who outshot Norway, 17-5.

The USA will face Finland on Monday in its group finale in Quarteira.

“I think the speed of play was so much better today for pretty much 90 minutes,” said U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage. "It was a little up and down in the first half and the beginning of the second, but we then regained the ball and played aggressively. This is the American attitude and mentality; playing hard, but also being sophisticated enough to create chances and find the find rhythm and Boxx and Lloyd did well today.”
