The USWNT was widely expected to score goals in its friendly against Uzbekistan and Vlatko Andonovski's team did not disappoint in Columbus, Ohio.

It may have taken the USWNT a little bit of time to hit its stride in the first half, but once Andi Sullivan had scored the first goal, there was no waiting for the second goal.

Uzbekistan kicked off, but quickly lost the ball and, within about 13 seconds of the restart, Mallory Pugh was finishing off a quick break to make it 2-0.
