KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The U.S. women’s national team played the Korea Republic to a scoreless draw in an international friendly at Children’s Mercy Park Thursday night.
The tie extended the Americans’ home unbeaten streak to 61 games, but had its home winning streak snapped at 22.
Goalkeeper Adrianna Franch recorded the clean sheet for the USWNT before a crowd of 18,467.
Carli Lloyd made her 315th appearance in the penultimate international contest of her career. Her final appearance will be against Korea Tuesday night.
Lloyd came into the match as a substitute in the 63 rd minute to roaring cheers from the crowd. She is the second-most capped player in world history and has scored 134 international goals, which rank third in USWNT history and fourth all-time in the world.
Prior to the match, Lindsey Horan was honored for reaching 100 caps, which she earned during the Olympics on July 24 in a 6-1 victory against New Zealand, a match in which she scored her 23rd international goal. At 27 years old, the midfielder is the 41st USWNT player to earn that distinction and the 18 th-youngest. The Colorado native earned her 105th cap tonight and has tallied 22 goals and 33 assists.
The USWNT will return to action to close out the October window as they face Korea Republic again Tuesday in what will be the final match of Lloyd’s international career.
