USWNT Rolls To 3-0 Win, But Chile’s GK Steals The Show With String Of Impossible Saves

The U.S. could've scored nine or ten, but Christiane Endler played the match of her life.

The USWNT defeated Chile 3-0 on Sunday with all three goals coming in the first half. Coincidentally, that was the exact same score at halftime of the Thailand game before the U.S. added 10 more over the course of the second 45. The score could’ve certainly approached that today, but for Chile goalkeeper Christiane Endler. 

The 27-year-old, who plays for PSG, certainly appeared comfortable at the Parc des Princes while pulling off a string of stunning saves to keep the USWNT at bay in front of 45,594 appreciative spectators.

And the praise wasn’t confined to Paris. Here’s what the inter web had to say about Endler’s game. 

In the end, the USWNT peppered her goal with 26 shots, nine of which landed on target. Endler made six saves and four of them were absolutely world-class. Meanwhile, her peer at the other end of the pitch, Alyssa Naeher, wasn’t required to make a save all game.

And she doesn’t get credited with a save on Carli Lloyd’s late penalty miss, but she guessed the correct way and probably had some influence on the wayward shot. 

But the USWNT got all three points thanks to an incredible strike from Lloyd in the 11th minute…

The victory sends the USWNT to the top of Group F on goal difference. The U.S. has a differential of +16, while Sweden’s stands at +6. Accordingly, the U.S. will win the group with a victory or draw when the two nations meet on Thursday, June 20, in Le Havre.
