WNT Draws 0-0 with Iceland to Win Group B and Earn Place in Algarve Cup Championship

LAGOS, Portugal (March 9, 2015) – In a scrappy game that featured 29 fouls, including 18 from Iceland, the U.S. Women’s National Team played to a 0-0 draw in its final Group B match at the 2015 Algarve Cup.

The tie was good enough for the USA to take first place in Group B with seven points. As one of the top two group winners, the U.S. earned a berth in the championship game against France on March 11. The venue and kickoff time will be confirmed later today, and the match will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1.

Iceland proved to be an organized and aggressive team as it dropped back into a defensive posture for the entire match and tried to launch long balls that were dealt with well by the USA’s back line. The U.S. put together numerous dangerous attacks that led to quite a few crosses, but could not pierce Iceland’s bunker.

France defeated Japan 3-1 to take all nine points from its three Group C games. The USA and France met recently on Feb. 8 in Lorient, France, in what was the first match of the year for the U.S. Women. The USA fell 2-0 as France scored twice in a two-minute span in the second half.

Goal Scoring Rundown:
None

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
USA – Hope Solo, 45th+1 minute: Iceland had created virtually no scoring chances through the first 45 minutes when the ball popped to Hólmfrídur Magnúsdóttir in the first minute of first-half stoppage time. She got off a dangerous shot high to the middle of the goal, but Solo flew to push the ball over the bar for a corner kick.

ISL – Gudbjörg Gunnarsdóttir, 67th minute: The USA pushed for a goal against the Iceland bunker for most of the match and Kelley O’Hara’s shot from distance in the 67th minute almost slipped through the hands of Gunnarsdóttir, but she managed to get enough of the ball to push the rocket over the crossbar.

ISL – Gudbjörg Gunnarsdóttir, 83th minute: Christen Press came on in the 60th minute and made an impact offensively, especially when she squared up on goal in the 83rd minute and fired on a line from 23 yards out. The ball was headed toward the right corner of the net, but Gunnarsdóttir dove to her left to push it outside the post.

Milestone Watch:

  • Abby Wambach made her 237th appearance and ranks sixth on the all-time WNT list, two games behind fifth-place Joy Fawcett (239 games from 1987-2004).
  • Defender Lori Chalupny earned her 98th cap. She is just two appearances away from hitting the century mark, which 30 other WNT players have reached.
  • Goalkeeper Hope Solo earned her 80th shutout.

Algarve Quote Sheet: WNT vs. Iceland - March 9, 2015

U.S. WNT head coach Jill Ellis

On the match:
“I think going in we knew it was going to be a physical game. We had to stay in two-touch rhythm because certainly if we spent too much time on the ball they were going to come in and hit us hard. But this game was good because, one, I got to see players I needed to see, and two we got to rest some legs for the final.”

On what the team has to look forward to when they face France for the second time this year:
“It’s going to be another great test. Everything is about making strides, so it’s another opportunity to gauge where we’re at and see how far we’ve come in a month. The most important thing of going to a World Cup is the upward trend; in terms of performance, fitness and all the components that will help us win.”

On the challenge France will represent:
“They’re a very highly-skillful team, like to move the ball, and are a tremendous attacking team with a lot of good personalities and players. They’ve shown that they’re a top quality team, and it’s going to be another fantastic opportunity to play them.”

U.S. WNT forward Alex Morgan

On the match:
“I think Iceland’s strategy was definitely to frustrate us and not let us set the pace of the game. It was choppy but we knew that with a tie we could be in the final and we’re happy to be play for the championship now.”

U.S. WNT midfielder Heather O’Reilly

On Iceland’s competitiveness:
“I think that Iceland was good in terms of energy and competitiveness and compactness. It was a good, difficult match but our main goal which was making the final and we did enough.”

On being able to rest players:
“This is a really deep group and team, and we have different players who play different roles. It was good to rest some legs and be able to get ready for France.”

On facing France for the second time in about a month:
“We hate losing, so we’re still obviously disappointed in the result when we were in France. It’s nice that a month later we get to see them again and hopefully turn that result around.”

U.S. WNT defender Becky Sauerbrunn

On the physical match:
“It was definitely a game of duels and winning your individual battles. It was really about reading second balls, just being competitive and trying to be first to things and breaking pressure. You just kind of have to keep your head and stick with our game plan. (Iceland defensive tactics are) tough though, but you try to find people in the seams and kind of play our game. It’s tough when they’re disruptive but you have to go to the basics and that’s winning balls and connecting passes.”

On getting the opportunity to face France again after losing to them back in February:
“I think we’re on neutral ground now, we’re not in France, so that’s different. We want to right the wrongs that happened in that game.”
