USC product A-Rod leads “crap” U.S. past Italy to qualify for WQ

Well, the “crap” only applied to the U.S. play in the opening 20 minutes or so, in truth, according to Coach Pia Sundhage.

But at least it looks like the young guns are bringing it for the U.S.

After 21-year-old Alex Morgan of Diamond Bar gave the U.S. the vital sole goal over Italy last week, 23-year-old Southern Californian Amy Rodriguez led the U.S. with a strike for another 1-0 over Italy today in Chicago for a 2-0 on aggregate World Cup qualifying series triumph that takes the U.S. to Germany next year.
