Algarve Cup

Post by Geezaldinho on Wed Mar 06, 2013 10:08 am

The USA beat Iceland today 3:0, resting several players including Megan and Heath.
Iceland bunkerd -- didn't work.


Scores by Beuhler and Boxx on corners, and Abby on a feed from Morgan.


Chrystal Dunn got a start and reportedly did well. This game was on PPV at $14 , but will be available tommorrow on Fox soccer 6:00 am. Set your DVR.

In the second match of he Algarve for the USA, Tom Sermani used an almost completely different lineup. It didn't make a lot of difference as the USA won 5-0.

USA (Leroux 14', Krieger 32', Rapinoe 47', Press 65', Engen 85')


Next up Sweden, who beat Iceland 6-1. It will be a reunion of sorts against a Pia lead team.

Not likely to be one unless it shows up after the cup, maybe. The games are being streamed for a fee, ( $14.95, I think).

The games are available later on FSC (619 on DirectTV) The last one was Thursday at 6:00 am. This one will be broadcast Sunday at 4:00 PM.
I think the next one against Sweden is on Tuesday at 7:00 AM. All times Pacific.


To tide you over, here are the scoring highlights from ussoccer. They also have a separate video of each score.

The USA came from behind to tie Sweden and win the group.

Scores were from Sweden's Lisa Dahlkvist in the 4th and by Alex Morgan off a corner from Megan Rapinoe in the 68th.

I don't have a direct link yet, but you can find the highlights here

The USA will face Germany in the final.

No, I think the only option is again PPV, if you want it live. It is free on Eurovision's streams, but the USA is blocked.

I'm still looking for the next day feed on FSC.

BTW, today's game is on FSC tommorrow at 7:00 AM PAC.

The Algarve Cup final will be broadcast on the 15th at noon, which of course means the actual game will be on the 14th.

At the half, it's USA 2 Germany 0 on two strikes from Morgan.

Lots of roster changes. Megan is out with a muscle strain she got slipping in warmups.

Abby, Rampone, also out.

Starts from Krieger, Beuhler, Engen, Ohara, Boxx, Averbush, Press, Leroux, Morgan, Heath.. Barnhart in the net

Final USA 2:0 Germany.

Sermanni put is 5 subs with varying success. Barnhart had a great game, as the score doesn't reflect that the USA only got 5 shots off.

Megan gets the Player of the Tournament award despite playing 2 of the 4 games and riding the pines today.
