United States win SheBelieves Cup

Mar 9, 2018-

An own-goal from goalkeeper Karen Bardsley sent England spinning to defeat as the United States clinched the SheBelieves Cup on Wednesday with a narrow 1-0 victory over the Lionesses. England manager Phil Neville’s first tournament in charge ended in disappointment after Megan Rapinoe’s low cross took two deflections on its way into the net. Neville’s side only needed a draw to win the competition outright but were ultimately overpowered by the reigning world champions who were deserving winners. England had arrived in Orlando in buoyant mood following a comprehensive win over France and a battling draw with Germany in early rounds of the four-nation tournament.
