United States beats Brazil 3-0 in women's Kirin Cup soccer
CHIBA, Japan (AP) ' Carli Lloyd, Shannon Boxx and Amy Rodriguez scored to give the United States a 3-0 victory over Brazil in the three-team Kirin Cup on Tuesday.
Lloyd picked up a loose ball off a Christie Rampone free kick in the 18th minute and scored from close range. Boxx doubled the lead just five minutes later with a header off Lauren Cheney's free kick.
Substitute Rodriguez completed the scoring in the 83rd, slotting home a loose ball off a free kick by Cheney.
The game started four hours earlier than scheduled because heavy rain and strong winds were forecast to hit Chiba.
