The U.S. conceded their first goal of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup on Monday when Spain's Jennifer Hermoso scored in the 9th minute during the knockout stage contest. The U.S.'s Megan Rapinoe converted two penalty kicks, giving the U.S. a 2-1 win. The U.S., the tournament favorites, infamously pounded Thailand in their group stage opener, 13-0, before shutting out Chile and Sweden, 3-0 and 2-0, respectively, to clinch the group. Spain, though, gave the U.S. their toughest challenge of the tournament in a win-or-go-home situation. The U.S. will now move on to play France, who beat Brazil 2-1 on Sunday, in the quarterfinals.
