Kicking off its Victory Tour, the U.S. Women's National Team play the second of two matches against Costa Rica on Wednesday in Chattanooga, Tenn., Thorns FC midfielder Tobin Heath earned her 100th cap, while Thorns FC forward Alex Morgan returned to the pitch for the first time since the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup and scored a goal.
Heath started and logged 64 minutes in her 100th career match and will be officially honored by U.S. Soccer prior to the team's match on Sept. 17 in Detroit, Mich. Making her debut in 2008, she is the 33rd U.S. player to reach 100 caps. Heath also played 45 minutes in the USWNT's first match against Costa Rica, a 8-0 win at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pa. on Aug. 16, as she tallied an assist on a goal by Meghan Klingenberg.
Morgan saw action as as second-half substitute, replacing Abby Wambach in the 56th minute, and scored her 53rd career goal as she chested in a cross from Amy Rodriguez, the seventh, and final, goal of the match in the 81st minute. Her goal moved her into a tie for ninth place on the USWNT's all-time goal scoring list.
