United States 3, Japan 1

The United States women’s national team defeated Japan, 3-1 on Wednesday in Frisco, Texas, to finish the 2020 SheBelieves Cup with a perfect record and win the home tournament for the third time in five editions.

Megan Rapinoe scored on a free kick in the 7th minute before Christen Press added a second goal on a spectacular chip 19 minutes later.

Mana Iwabuchi pulled back a goal for the U.S. in the second half, but Lindsey Horan added an insurance goal in the final minutes, heading in a cross from Mallory Pugh.

U.S. players warmed up with their shirts turned inside out, hiding the U.S. Soccer logo while still showing the four stars.

U.S. coach Vlatko Andonovski made several lineup changes for the match.

Spain 1, England 0

Spain finished second in the team’s inaugural SheBelieves Cup after defeating England, 1-0, on a late goal from tournament MVP Alexia Putellas.
