REIMS, FRANCE– In a more evenly matched competition, the US Women’s soccer team beat Spain in a 2-1 contest.
The hero of the match was Megan Rapinoe who scored both US goals, both on penalty kicks. She became the second player to score two penalties in a FIFA Women’s Cup match.
Ironically the only player that distinction belongs to, is Spain’s Jenni Hermoso.
The US women’s team will now face France in the quarterfinals June 28.
