USWNT qualifies for 2020 Olympics: Early blitz downs Mexico

CARSON, Calif. — The U.S. women’s national team punched a ticket for the 2020 Olympics on Friday night with a 4-0 victory against Mexico. The U.S. scored twice in the opening 14 minutes with goals by Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis and never looked back.

Mewis scored a second in the 67th minute, while Christen Press capped the scoring six minutes later.

The U.S. will face Canada–which will also go to the Olympics after a 1-0 win over Costa Rica–in the final of Concacaf’s qualifying tournament on Sunday.
