This is Chile’s first time qualifying for the Women’s World Cup, and if you’re going off of FIFA’s world rankings they are actually five spots lower the USWNT’s first opponent Thailand, but they made Sweden work in their 2-0 defeat earlier this week.
USA star forward Alex Morgan is leading the tournament in scoring with five goals and three assists while former Badgers All-American Lavelle and Samantha Mewis are tied for fourth with two goals apiece.
Please keep all celebratory GIFs in the comments respectful. Lol, jk, let’s pound Chile into dust.
