SBI USWNT Woman of the Match: Christen Press


As the U.S. Women’s National Team recorded a 2-1 victory over China, Christen Press made a case for herself to stay in the starting lineup.

The forward marked her 100th match with assists on both U.S. goals, the second of which saw Press smartly find Heath with limited space. Overall, it was an active night for Press, whose play on the right side of the attack saw her cut in frequently as the offensive unit improved its mellow performance last week.

Similarly, Megan Rapinoe put on another strong showing on the opposite side of defense, while Samantha Mewis’s efforts in midfield allowed the U.S. to dominate play.


  1. While I have not been a big fan of Christen Press, owing to her inconsistency, limited skill areas, and lack of impact vs top teams, she probably had her best match ever last night vs
    China with a couple of stellar assists. When you consider that the U. S. had only scored 2 goals total in their last 3 matches vs China, you can appreciate the impact of her 2 assists for the cause. Maybe she has found a position, and a style of play which will place her in the line-up in critical matches. She certainly has the speed to play right wing. So lets keep our fingers crossed here.
