  • Rose Lavelle USWNT 2020

Rose Lavelle is ready to show what she can do at Manchester City after her stunner against the Netherlands on Friday, according to USA national team coach Vlatko Andonovski. The USWNT returned after a 261-day long layoff - and while most expected rust and tempered expectations, the team simply duplicated the exact scoreline of the 2019 World Cup final and held the Oranje to two shots total, with none of them on target.

Before the game kicked off, the WNT used their return to action to send an important and unified message, wearing jackets during pre-game that read "Black Lives Matter" on the front.

The final shot count ended at 14-2, and the USA kept the Netherlands from putting a single shot on frame over 90 minutes. "This is a great building block for us". The Dutch did not get off a shot until late in the match.

Lavelle made it 1-0 in the 41st minute. That time, the 25 year old sliced through multiple Dutch defenders in the midfield before delivering a low, left-footed strike into the corner of the goal. It was Morgan's first appearance in the red, white and blue since that 2019 final in Lyon. Sam Mewis was among the first to embrace her sister in celebration. When she took the field with her younger sister Samantha, it was the third time the sisters had played together for the USWNT, breaking the tie with the Fair sisters, Lorrie and Ronnie, who played together twice in the late 1990s.

The older sister of starter Sam Mewis came in as a second-half substitute and scored in the 70th minute.

In fact, the shot count in the 80 minute was 13-0 favoring the U.S. Her second career worldwide goal came 2,722 days after her first on June 15, 2013, the longest span between goals in WNT history. The top-ranked Americans have won all nine matches they've played this year.

"Obviously, this was a unusual year", he said.

Morgan nearly added an exclamation point in the 90th minute, but her late effort was whistled offside. Naeher didn't have to make a save while keeping a clean sheet, her seventh of the year. "But one thing that didn't change - and one thing will never change with this team - is the heart and the mind". It took until the 41st minute for the US to take the lead with Rose Lavelle firing past Sari van Veenendaal.

Andonovski insisted that he wasn't necessarily surprised Lavelle hasn't gotten fully up to speed with City yet, but backed her to use her goal on Friday as a jumping-off point to further establish herself in the Women's Super League.

Last summer, Rose Lavelle showed the world what she was capable of on the world's biggest stage, wowing observers with knifing runs throughout the 2019 World Cup.

On Friday, Mewis earned her first cap since 2014 and only 10 minutes into her return, topped off her comeback-running on to a flick from Lynn Williams to get behind the Netherlands defense-with a lovely goal to help seal the American win.

The USWNT improved to 8-1-0 all-time vs. the Netherlands. At 24, the striker has scored 71 goals for the Dutch in only 90 games.

Kristie Mewis, making her first appearance for the WNT in 2,454 days, marks the second-longest span between caps by any player in USWNT history. Defender Keri Raygor went 2,466 days between her eighth and ninth caps from March 1994 to December 2000.
