U.S. WNT battle Korea to a scoreless finish in final World Cup warmup

HARRISON, New Jersey (May 30, 2015) – Before a sellout crowd of 26,467 at Red Bull Arena, the U.S. Women’s National Team played the Korea Republic to a 0-0 draw in its final game of the Send-Off Series before departing to Canada for the start of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

After dropping its first match of the year to France 2-0 in Lorient, France, on Feb. 8, the USA has gone unbeaten in its next nine games and has outscored opponents 20-2 heading into Canada.

With two saves – the second of which was an acrobatic diving stop on the final kick of the match – U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo posted her 84th-career clean sheet, extending her WNT record for most shutouts.

The U.S. created chances throughout the match, especially on a sequence play involving Carli Lloyd, Morgan Brian and Sydney Leroux that culminated in the USA’s best chance for a scoring opportunity.

The USA was drawn into Group D at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup where it will face Australia, Nigeria and Sweden. The seventh edition of the tournament takes place from June 6-July 5 throughout Canada. The U.S. opens the tournament against Australia on June 8 at Winnipeg Stadium, faces Sweden on June 12 in Winnipeg, and finishes Group D play against Nigeria on June 16 at BC Place in Vancouver. The USA, Nigeria and Sweden have competed in every edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Next on the Schedule:
The U.S. WNT will open up Group D play at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Monday, June 8, against Australia. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET at Winnipeg Stadium in Winnipeg, Canada.
