USA U-23 3, England U-23 0

U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team earned its second straight win and shutout at the 2008 Nordic Cup with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over England in Group B on Thursday morning.
The USA now needs a win or a tie in its final first round match, taking place on July 19 against Norway, to win the group and earn a berth in its 12th straight Nordic Cup title game. Both the USA and Norway have won their first two matches and are tied atop the group with six points, but the USA has a superior goal difference at plus-4 to Norway’s plus-2, meaning a tie would give the U.S. top honors in the group.
India Trotter, who earned Player of the Match honors, scored in the 37th minute after Meghan Schnur played a great bending ball around the defense from the left side at about midfield. Trotter got on the end of it and beat a defender to go one-on-one with the ‘keeper before slotting her shot into the right corner.
