The United States women’s team kicked off the 2022 Concacaf W in style with a 3-0 victory over Haiti in the tournament’s opening match in Monterrey, Mexico.
The United States avoided two chances from Haiti, including a missed penalty kick that bounced off the post, but two goals from Alex Morgan in the first half and a late goal by Midge Bourse in the 84th minute were enough to secure three points for him. The Americans are on their way to the World Cup and qualify for the Olympics.
Morgan was the star of the show as she scored her one-click cross from Mallory Bew in the 16th minute to keep things going. She followed that up with a header from Kelly O’Hara’s cross in the 23rd minute.
The San Diego Wave star headed home in the 11th minute to put pressure on the Haitians early on. Morgan scored 21 goals in her 21 playoff games, including at least one goal in five consecutive playoffs.
The United States will meet Jamaica on Thursday in the second match of the three group stage matches. The game kicks off at 7 p.m. EST Paramount +, with studio coverage starting at 6:30 p.m. ET. Megan Rapinoe, who appeared as a second half player in this game, will have to miss the match where she will be honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House. The last time the Americans played for Jamaica was in June 2021 with a 4-0 friendly win. A win here could put USWNT in a prime position to advance to the semi-finals, which would secure qualification for the 2023 World Cup.
Lisa Bington and Ali Wagner will serve as match commentators with Jenny Chiu as a side reporter. Host Poppy Miller, along with US Hall of Fame goalkeeper Briana Scurry, former Canadian national team player Kaylyn Kyle and UNLV women’s soccer coach Jenny Ruiz Williams will serve as studio analysts throughout the competition.
