BRASILIA, Brazil - Forward Christen Press had a field day scoring goals she got four, while Carli Lloyd was able to do a hat trick leading the United States women’s soccer team against Argentina 7-0 in the Brasilia Tournament on Thursday, December 18. The win will secure their place in the final of the four-team contest.

The U.S. got some help from host Brazil when they were able to beat China 4-1 despite resting 5 time world player of the year Marta and other regular starters. A draw would have eliminated the US team. The final will be played Sunday at the Mane Garrincha Stadium.

The tournament serves as preparation for the 2015 World Cup in Canada, in which Brazil, China and the U.S. have qualified.
