England channeled the spirit of Robert Green against the USWNT Wednesday, conceding a very silly own goal on the way to a 1-0 USA victory that gave the Americans the SheBelieves Cup.
Megan Rapinoe's cross/shot was eventually knocked into the England netby goalkeeper Karen Bardsley for the only goal of the night in the 58th minute.

England will consider themselves unlucky and the USA will not care that they got lucky. Such is life in international tournament play (even friendlies).
The final SheBelieves Cup standings are: the USA in first place with seven points, England in second place with four points (they get the head-to-head and goal differential tiebreakers over France), France in third place with four points and Germany in fourth place with one point.
