US Women melt Iceland in the hot California sun

It was just a friendly, but it is always good to see a win come your way.
I must admit that I watched most of the first have in the small PIP window since the men's game went into extra time, but what I did see was a team coming together. With the new generation of women on the squad, anything could have happen. Thankfully, the best possible result came to pass.
Fotopoulos's two goals are the easy example of what went right, but one must also look at the d├ębut performances of Lori Lindsey and Angie Woznuk. Lindsey had a key play in the setup of the first goal. Woznuk was only on for 10 minutes or so, but she also looked good.

With this win, the US women are 7-0-0 in 2005 and keeper Hope Solo picked up her fifth consecutive shutout.
