, is vying for its fourth straight Olympic gold medal.It is what it is, United States captain Carli Lloyd said. Id rather two go Antworten

MANAUS, Brazil -- In the first few moments Hope Solo had to reflect following the U.S. teams 2-2 draw with Colombia on Tuesday, she already had perspective on the two goals that Catalina Usme got past her.Ive been around the game long enough to know that its part of the position, Solo said. I dont wish it on anybody. Being a goalkeeper is extremely difficult. But Ive been around long enough to know that these things do happen, theyve happened to me before.You just hope that they happen few and far between.The draw, while disappointing, did not have much impact on the defending Olympic champions. The United States still emerged at the top of Group G and will play Sweden in Brasilia on Friday in the quarterfinals.Usme beat Solo with a pair of free kicks. The first, in the 26th minute, was Colombias first ever Olympic goal, and first ever goal against the United States.The second came from a tight angle as time ran out.I have also learned to have a short-term memory, Solo said.

But we met our objective and its important to stay positive and take what we can out of these games.Pugh came into the game as a first-half substitute for midfielder Megan Rapinoe, who played in her first match since having ACL surgery in December.In addition to Rapinoe, United States coach Jill Ellis made several other changes to her starting lineup, sitting regular starters Alex Morgan, Tobin Heath and Meghan Klingenberg. Julie Johnston, who sat out the second game with groin injury, was also on the bench.Morgan came in after the half for Lloyd. Pugh, who hurt her ankle in the 2-0 opening win against New Zealand, went in when Rapinoe was pulled in the 33rd minute as temperatures hovered in the upper 80s.I felt really good, Rapinoe said. A little rusty in certain moments. I still have to get that game fitness back, but overall I felt really good.The match in Brazils Amazon rainforest was an announced sellout, with many fans awaiting the late game between host Brazil and South Africa. The crowd was squarely on the side of the underdog Colombians from the start and cheered wildly when Usme scored her first goal. The free kick bounced between Solos legs.The fans also taunted Solo by chanting Zika! Zika! The jeers have accompanied the U.S. goalkeeper throughout the Olympic tournament because of posts she made on social media about the virus that is spread by mosquitoes.Usmes goals were just the fifth and sixth that Solo has allowed this year. The veteran goalkeeper, who has a record 102 shutouts in international play, had not allowed a goal in the first two Olympic matches.The most important thing for me is not the goals or the making history, Usme said. The most important thing is the teamwork.Dunn, playing in her first Olympics with the national team, tied the match with a rebound after Lloyds shot bounced off the crossbar in the 41st minute. Pughs goal slid between numerous Colombia players before finding the back of the net in the second half and it looked as if the Americans might escape Manaus with a win.Colombia had already been eliminated from the Olympics with losses in its first two matches. On Monday, coach Fabian Taborda said Usme had an injured left knee, while Lady Andrade and Carolina Arias were suffering from exhaustion.
