Here are some tidbits for the U.S. women’s national team, which defeated Australia in the bronze medal match Thursday.
The information was provided by U.S. Soccer.
The USA’s record against Australia now stands at 27-1-4 and 1-0-2 at the Olympics. Over its last five games with Australia, the USA has a record of 2-1-2 and all five matches have been decided by two goals or fewer.
With the result, head coach Vlatko Andonovski is now 24-2-3 in his first 29 games.
Crystal Dunn is the only player to start all six matches for the USA at the Tokyo Olympics and played all but 16 minutes for the USA over the course of the six games.
Team captain Becky Sauerbrunn earned her 193rd USWNT cap, passing Brandi Chastain to move into 13th on the all-time appearance list.
Sauerbrunn also broke the record for most USWNT caps without scoring a goal. The mark was previously held by current USWNT General Manager Kate Markgraf, who scored her first – and only – goal for the USWNT in her 193rd cap.
Lloyd made her 22nd Olympic appearance, tying Christie Pearce Rampone for the most in USWNT history.
Lloyd and Horan are the only two players to appear in all 18 matches for the USA so far in 2021.
Rapinoe and Lloyd became the seventh and eighth different players to score for the USWNT at the Olympics, breaking the record of seven previously held by the 2008 Olympic Team for the most players to score in a single Olympic tournament.
Horan’s assist was her fifth of the year, tied for second on the team.
