U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team Earns Olympic Berth With 4-0 Win Over Mexico

The United States Women’s National Team has secured their spot in Tokyo for the 2020 Olympic Games. Defeating Mexico 4-0 on Friday night, the United States heads to the title game of the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying tournament.

They are set to face Canada in the championship on Sunday, who also earned their Olympic berth with a 1-0 win over Costa Rica. Canada has finished slightly behind the United States as a runner up in the last three qualifying tournaments.

30 SPORTS FIGURES WHO DIED IN 2018 – TRIBUTE SLIDESHOW 

Samantha Mewis scored twice, while Rose Lavelle and Christen Press each added one for the United States.

Four years ago in Brazil, the Americans lost to Sweden in the quarterfinals, giving them the team’s earliest exit in the Olympic tournament.

The United States has won the gold medal four times and has made the field every Olympics since soccer became an official Olympic sport in 1996.

For Crystal Dunn, this was her 100th appearance with the US national team.

Looking to avenge that disappointing 2016 Olympic run, the dominance of the United States was on full display as they look to once again prove they are the best in the world.

The Americans will take on Canada on February 9 at 6:00 p.m. EST in the final of the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying tournament.

It will be shown on FS2.
