BAKU, Azerbaijan (Sept. 25, 2012) – The United States scored five second-half goals and defeated Gambia 6-0 on Tuesday at Dalga Arena in its second match
of the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. Summer Green scored three goals and Amber Munerlyn, Morgan Stanton and Toni Payne each added a tally, setting up a
crucial Group B finale against Korea DPR on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Earlier in the day, Group B leader Korea DPR and France played to a 1-1 draw. North Korea (1-0-1) leads the group with four points and a plus-11 goal
differential. The U.S. (1-0-1) also has four points, but sits at plus-6 in goal differential. Third-place France (0-0-2) is still in the mix with two
points. The top two teams in Group B advance to the quarterfinal stage of the tournament.

The U.S. can only guarantee advancement to the quarterfinals with a win on Saturday against Korea DPR, which would also see them finish first in the group.
With a draw or loss, the U.S. could still advance with a second-place finish but only if France were to draw or lose to Gambia in the other final match in
the group.

The USA’s match against North Korea kicks off at 8 a.m. ET on Saturday, Sept. 29, at Bayil Stadium in Baku. The match will be broadcast live on ESPN3. Fans
can also follow the match on ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker and on Twitter @ussoccer_ynt.

On Tuesday, Green started the scoring with a penalty kick in the 25th minute. Left back Brittany Basinger was tackled in the box as she hit her cross and
referee Etsuko Fukano awarded the PK and the U.S. capitalized to take a 1-0 lead.

After a sluggish first half, the U.S. came flying out of the gates and grabbed a goal from Munerlyn at the near left post just 35 seconds into the second
half off of a Darian Jenkins assist to double the U.S. lead.

Green recorded her second goal of the match in the 61st minute as she struck the ball from the right side and it deflected off of Gambia captain defender
Amy Jaju. Jenkins notched her second assist of the match as she set up Green’s third goal in the 71st minute.

Morgan Stanton contributed her first international goal in the 83rd minute and Toni Payne capped off the scoring in the 86th minute, capitalizing on a
superb long-distance pass from Brittany Basinger.

Additional Notes:

  • The USA improved to 13-0-3 this year.
    The six goals are the most the USA has scored in this tournament, topping the previous high of four when the U.S. defeated South Korea 4-2 in the
    quarterfinals of the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.
  • Albertin Montoya made several changes to the starting 11 that featured against France in the first World Cup match. He brought in Morgan Reid at
    right back and moved Brittany Basinger to the left, gave Morgan Stanton the start in the midfield, rested captain Morgan Andrews and inserted Amber
    Munerlyn up top.
  • Summer Green’s three goals now give her 20 career international tallies at the U-17 level.
  • Backup goalkeeper Cassie Miller replaced Jane Campbell at the start of the second half.
  • The USA had a 7-2 shots advantage and a 3-1 shots on goal edge through the first 45 minutes with 65 percent of the game’s possession.
