FRISCO, Texas — It took just two minutes of action for the U.S. women’s national team to show fans in attendance at Toyota Stadium just why they’re continually regarded as the best women’s soccer team in the world.
Midfielder Tobin Heath scored one of her two goals (2′, 29′) in the opening minutes of the semifinals of the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s Championship as the USWNT rolled past Jamaica 6-0 to clinch a berth in the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France.
USWNT captain Megan Rapinoe capitalized on the momentum from Heath’s early goal with a goal of her own in the 15’ on a cross-field pass from defender Abby Dahlkemper.
In the first half, the goals continued to pour in as the USWNT scored three more goals in just 12 minutes to take a five-goal lead into halftime.
Striker Alex Morgan capped her two-goal performance with a penalty kick in the 84’ minute.
The USWNT will face Canada in the Finals of the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s Championship on Wednesday at Toyota Stadium, following the third-place match between Jamaica and Panama. The winner of that match will also earn a berth in the 2019 Women’s World Cup.
