Star striker Sophia Smith created a number of chances, and the team secured an own goal against Nigeria in the first half. Nigeria’s Uchenna Kanu scored a huge goal in the second half, and then Rose Lavelle scored the game winner with a big assist from Megan Rapinoe. At the end of the game, the USWNT signed their CBA with US Soccer establishing their agreement of equal pay with the USMNT.
