Watch: USWNT 7-0 Russia (Full Match)

Carli Lloyd and Christen Press earned a brace each as the U.S. Women’s National Team steamrolled Russia in a 7-0 route.

“It was a bit difficult for Russia, coming from the cold weather to this kind of heat and humidity,” coach Tom Sermanni said, “But, I think the way we played made it very difficult for them to defend the whole 90 minutes. Our ball movement, our support and the way we approached the game was very good.”

Heather O’Reilly, Sydney Leroux and Abby Wambach round out the USWNT scorers, with Wambach inflating her goal scoring record to 164. Russia never stood a chance, enduring a shelling in front of 8,857 fans in Boca Raton. The U.S. outshot Russia 32 to three, with 18 shots on goal to Russia’s one.

Both teams are set for a rematch this Wednesday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
