USA-Russia: Dunn scores twice again in 5-1 win

Crystal Dunn scored twice in her second consecutive game as the USA completed a sweep of its two-game series against Russia with a 5-1 win on Sunday before 11,347 fans in Houston. A foul on Dunn led to the opening U.S. goal, Carli Lloyd's penalty kick for her 97th career goal.

Rose Lavelle again made a case for inclusion in the U.S. midfield with her first goal in her fourth start. The fifth goal came on a own goal after a Lavelle corner kick was redirected into the Russian goal in stoppage time in the first half.

Goalkeeper Jane Campbell, a first-round draft pick of the Houston Dash out of Stanford,  earned her first cap, coming on in the 74th minute to replace Ashlyn Harris.

    The game became uninteresting again after Morgan, Press and Rapino entered the fiel. These players have shown to be no force to improve the team .Ms Ellis please do not call these players again and instead call younger players to built the new team for the next major events. We wondwer if a new coach would do a better job. Klingerberg and O'Hara need to be tought that when you are alone en position to score, you first look ahead to see if someone else is more open than you. Both players demonstrated poor knowledge of soccer. When !! are you going to learn to shoot low balls that goalkeepers fear them because they are nearly impossible to stop ?, this is another reason why we need younger players that can shoot with both feet.
