2020 Tokyo Olympics: United States women bounce back with massive victory over New Zealand


The United States Women National team bounced back from their surprise defeat against Sweden with a massive victory over New Zealand in their second group game of the ongoing 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The American women decided to skip the opening ceremony of the games to prepare for their second game after their disastrous outing against Sweden.

And their decision paid off as the Americans hammered New Zealand by 6-1 to keep their hopes of winning the tournament alive.

The American ladies went all out in the first half but after scoring the first goal through Rose Lavelle in the ninth minute, four more first-half efforts from the Americans were ruled offside.

But they finally got the second goal before the end of the first half through Lindsey Horan.

The USWNT scored two more goals through Christen Press and Alex Morgan while New Zealand defenders gifted the American ladies with two own goals.

The only consolation goal for New Zealand was scored by Betsy Hassett.
