The U.S. women easily brushed aside New Zealand on Tuesday (Sept. 19), winning 5-0 in Cincinatti.
Four days earlier, outside Denver, the Americans beat the Aussies 3-1.
Here are five oddities, curiosities, or (possibly) interesting facts about the games and their participants:
The U.S. record against New Zealand is 14W-1L-1D, the only loss coming in the teams’ first match, in 1987.
Tobin Heath, recovering from a back injury, played for the first time Tuesday since March 7, coming off the bench in the 72nd minute.
Alex Morgan had two goals on Tuesday, the 18th multi-goal game of her career.
Becky Sauerbrunn and Samantha Mewis are the only Americans to have started in every match in 2017.
Until she came out at the half on Tuesday, Becky Sauerbrunn had played every minute of every game this year.
