Ertz Becomes First AZ Player To Score At World Cup; McDonald Makes Debut


Sunday, June 16th, 2019 -- It was a big day for the two Arizona natives at the FIFA Women's World Cup. 

Julie Ertz got the start, her second in as many matches for the U.S. Women's National Team, and she scored a goal in the 26th minute to become the first Arizona player to score a goal at either the Men's or Women's World Cup. 
Then in the 46th minute, Jessica McDonald made her World Cup debut when she was subbed in for Ertz - no injury, just rest. 
The U.S. Women's National Team coasted to their second victory of the tournament, 3-0 over Chile, and have secured their Round of 16 berth with just one match remaining against Sweden which will be played on Thursday.
