The U.S. women's national team continued its preparations for the World Cup with a match against Japan on Wednesday, and once again the Americans pulled out a 2-0 victory.

Four days after defeating Japan by the same scoreline, the United States was victorious through goals from Heather O'Reilly and Amy Rodriguez. O'Reilly shone in the match, assisting on Rodriguez's tally before scoring one herself in the second half.

O'Reilly's performance is sure to give her and the team confidence as they head into their World Cup Send-off Match against Mexico on June 5 at Red Bull Arena.

The United States faces Korea DPR, Colombia and Sweden in the first round of the World Cup.

Here are highlights from the U.S. women's 2-0 win versus Japan:
