PHOTOS: USWNT all smiles in rout of Costa Rica

The Equalizer Staff August 17, 2015 5

The United States women’s national team’s 2015 World Cup victory tour kicked off in Pittsburgh, Pa., on Sunday with an 8-0 U.S. win over Costa Rica.

If you are looking to draw too many deeply analytical conclusions from that romp…you shouldn’t. But it was a really cool event, and with fun, cool events come awesome photos, including Meghan Klingenberg waving the Steelers’ Terrible Towel. The Equalizer’s Erica McCaulley was there to capture all the action. Have a look at the (copyrighted) photos below:

    Love the Kling celebration pictures – you can tell how happy the team is for her!

  • newsouth

    when the tours are over, is dunn a better combo forward/attacking MF/winger or whatever than sydney? i find it hard that sydney can last the entire next cycle.,

      Not sure – part of it is getting the chemistry with teammates. Press will have an advantage there. Syd, well first she has to get healthy and then she has to have the drive to continue playing. I have to believe that Dunn gets a spot for the Olympics.

    Big shout out to Erica McCaulley for some of the best Live Action shots I have ever seen of the USWNT…. That one of Carli LLoyd is the best one I’ve ever seen of Carli.

    Kudos

      That last pic of Rapinoe is a keeper, too.
