So the USA stuck five goals on Nigeria last night. It was 2-0 when I checked in during my virus fighting marathon. I missed a goodie, then, obviously. Check out the official site:
"Mia Hamm’s team mates have come to expect big games from her. But Thursday night’s performance in the USA’s 5-0 win over Nigeria was out of the ordinary even for the world’s all-time leader in international goals.
“Mia’s play on and off the ball tonight was magnificent,” said U.S. coach April Heinrichs. “It was a whole other level of play for her.”
Hamm got the Americans off to a quick lead, converting a penalty kick just six minutes in. She added a second goal in the 12th minute, sending a free kick from 30 yards over the head of Nigeria goalkeeper Precious Dede.
“Honestly, I was trying to serve the ball into the box,” said Hamm, admitting that she was not trying to score on the set piece. But Hamm’s play off the ball was equal to her goal-scoring ability."
